Hello new followers. It’s a pleasure. 🙂 If you’ve started following me recently, you may not be aware of my terribly long rambling stories. I apologize in advance. They selfishly demand to be written and once in a while I do not have the will to say “no”. It seems a shame anyway not to remember these happy bits later. 🙂
There’s this really nice game room downstairs. It has a HUGE TV, board games, and a Wii (WE do not have Wii. <hehe. Just let it happen.). The last time I was here, I kept checking back to see if it was empty. It never was. I’m pretty sure a family slept in there.
I ended up reading for hours in the lobby. I couldn’t sleep. I was so excited. The next day, my Disney adventure would begin. I would be a Cast Member soon. I’d wanted to be one since high school. I didn’t know where I was staying, or working, or what my roommates would be like….. but never mind that. I’m distracting myself. Tonight.
I finally snuck into the game room.
And it was glorious.
I heard angels singing “Hallelujah” in the distance as I opened the door. I spied Mario Kart on the shelf and almost cried. My brother doesn’t like to come on family adventures… so it was just me, myself and I. I ran around and finally looked in all the cabinets.
It was lonely for a bit..even with the Wii. However, just as I started thinking that, a surprise walked in. A very well dressed couple. I guess their wedding had ended early and the gentleman hadn’t played Mario Kart since it first came out…
It was a bloodbath. 8) But a nice one. The poor dear girl didn’t make it past the start line. She kept driving into the ocean and gave up after five swims or so. The man in the suit put up a bit more of a challenge, and yet, he was still eleventh place. (There was no way he’d be last anyhow with his girlfriend giving it one last go and taking another dive into the ocean…). They were such nice company. Even if it was a little strange. Times like that bring back a small hope for humanity. And community. I’m not sure I would’ve had the courage to join in with a stranger like that… Hm. Strange night. Goodnight. 🙂
