sunday february 23

today i went to trivia, where one of the questions asked what the very center ring on an archery target was worth. after some thought, i recalled playing an old archery computer game on a 3.5-inch floppy disk about 20 years ago. in that game, the scores ranged from 0 to 10 per shot, so i concluded that if the game was accurate (and why wouldn't it be?), the bullseye must be worth 10. this memory also conjured a related one -- as an eight year old, i hadn't entered my own name when i recorded an archery-game high score, but rather the name of the girl i had a crush on at the time. in addition to being embarrassed all over again about this, i was a little depressed, since i know she died a few years ago. so, i was right about the bullseye, but really had to run the gamut of emotions to earn that one point.

Good Christ. That was an emotional trivia point.

Wow, really made me do some thinking and reminiscing to the days of Byron Northview
