Book of Matthew, OU, and personal revelations.

So, I'm reading all these missives related to the big game this weekend while I'm eating lunch.

And I'm thinking to myself: "Bombilla, you really should eat smaller portions for lunch. Oh, and don't worry about Colt - he's a big boy and can take care of himself."

And then I remember that I have a staff meeting in 45 mins and I ain't ready for it. And right when I start collecting my notes, etc together for the meeting I start thinking to myself: "Oh, shit! Ullman isn't ready for this game!"

And then I start rubbing my temples while muttering "Serenity now...serenity now...". My eyes are closed tight, and I see stars in all the black and I see a very hazy image that is both familiar and terrifying. I begin to sweat, my hands begin to tremble, my balls are shrinking as the image comes into focus: Bubble Screen! My lip quivers. My stomach churns. My telephone rings: My boss says I'm late!

I grab my notes, my folders, my cell phone, my pack of smokes, and then for some reason a quote from the Book of Matthew floats along the rapids of my stream of consciousness...

"Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day." Matthew 6:34

And then as my office door closes I realize I just left my keys on my desk. The door is locked, and I can't get back inside without assistance. And it hits me:

It's OU week, and I'm not drinking enough.
