Calm?

I have faults too numerous even to reckon.

That said, I generally have it in me to maintain a placid disposition.

Boring, pedantic, obtuse, insensitive…Yes, all these and more. But people count on me to remain calm. I do not agitate easily. I am a steady man. Not perturbed. Cool, calm, collected.

EXCEPT WHEN THE ORIOLES AND THE NATS BOTH GO TO GAME FIVE ON THE SAME DAY!!!

And the whole MARC-train World Series dream hangs in the balance of a single October evening.

Come on, Fates! O, wheel-spinning Fortuna, can you be serious? How in the world is anyone supposed to concentrate today?

  1. Father Mark,

    All this, and the debates as well. It is, indeed, difficult to see how one might remain calm, especially in light of Rudyard Kipling’s “If” (admittedly bastardized a bit): “If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs, and blaming it on you…… you don’t understand the situation.”

    In Gold we trust.

    LIH,

    joe
