A couple of hours ago I spoke to a good friend on the phone. I mentioned that I came last in the regatta (27/27 - last in bronze and last over all). Each time I mentioned another of those little bits she said "yay!" and made me laugh loads. She suggests that I should get a prize for managing to be so spectacularly last.
I really could care less about the regatta but I'm grouchy today for other reasons and that put the smile back on my face. But it also made me realise just why it is some people think the two of us are weird and don't understand us.
I do agree with her though - I was in the regatta! Yay! I came last! Yay! (followed very much by a SO WHAT?!)
