wednesday april 30

today i was sitting at my computer when i absentmindedly glanced to my left and noticed, no more than four feet away, a huge box containing the game crokinole (though the french side of the box was facing up, so it was actually: croquignole). the game has sat there for years, but because of the way it's stored, it was the first time in ages that i'd noticed it. my first instinct, upon seeing the game, was that i'd really like to play it. this desire, however, was closely followed by a vivid and immediate memory of a particularly lengthy crokinole session from my past that left my index fingernail sore for hours afterwards; the memory made me decide that maybe i'd just leave the game where it was for now.
