Ping Pong is a funny game. Your skill level very much depends on if you grew up with a table in your house. As a competent Ping Pong player there is no bigger let down then having someone say they can play only to find out they suck. A fun, competitive Ping Pong match is very rewarding. Playing someone who pops it up and can't spin isn't worth anyones time. Now ping pong is also interesting because if you grew up playing it you are only as good as the family members you play against. When I was a freshman in college I went to a tournament they held in the gym. The guy I played against asked me if I was any good and all I could respond was, "well I'm better than my dad and my brother". He was in the same boat. I won two rounds then got smoked by a tennis player. My dad and brother are good. We have good games and rallies but I have always beat them consistenlty. Now they have been playing for two months straight and think they are going to beat me come christmas break. That logic doesn't really make sense to me. Ohio State and Michigan can play eachother one hundred times. That doesn't lead to them beating the Patriots.
When something goes wrong at a wedding it's always a bit weird editing the video. Do they want me to include it? To edit it out? I just sent out a video where the best man was far too drunk. He got up there for his speech and was so drunk and nervous he couldn't even read what he had wrote down. It was three full minutes of him dropping the cards, struggling to read them, and then finally giving up and passing his speech on to another groomsmen. I included it in the documentary because I am hired to document the day. The highlight reel is when the manipulation comes into play to make it seem like your wedding was far better than it actually was. The documentary stays in tact. Some people have a sense of humor about the mess ups and keep them in. One time a bridesmaid fainted mid ceremony. Fell straight down like a a domino. The bride and groom demanded that it be left in the video because they thought it was so funny. The couple who had the drunk best man did not share that sentiment. They emailed me back asking to cut every part of the best man out. Yikes.
I got a free cookie today. I went to the local cafe for lunch. I had a chill running through me so I was desperatly in the mood for some soup. They only have chili and the soup of the day. I asked what the soup of the day was because if you don't ask what the soup of the day is at all times you're a big dumb idiot. The girl said clam chowder. I don't like clam chowder. I want to like clam chowder. Everyone always talks about it. Everyone loves it. That means I should love it. Conform or die. But I don't like it. I said, ah okay, I'll take a bowl of chili. She said they were out of chili. I said okay, I'll take the chowder. Maybe my taste buds have grown.
I then sat at the table and waited for my soup. The waiting really did a number on me. Why did I order something I don't like? Do I want to fit in that badly with the clam chowder society? Should I have just gotten a sandwich? I know I like sandwhiches. I better like this clam chowder because an unsatisfying lunch is worse than not eating at all. Why am I thinking so much? What's going on here? Where's my chowder? Twenty minutes had gone by and all I had done was question my order and my life. Finally the owner saw me sitting in confused isolation with no food. He asked what I ordered. A crushing question. I told him. He said they lost the ticket. He apologized. Gave me my chowder. I ate it. Didn't hate it. Decent.
Then I thought, man a cookie would be really nice. I wonder if they give me a free cookie since I had to wait so long for a bowl of premade soup. Should I ask for a free cookie? Hey since you fucked up the soup thing and I almost had a mental breakdown because I had so much time bewtween ordering and eating to think about how dumb of an order it was do you think you could give me a free cookie? That's not something people who are in tune with society ask. It's actually a good quote from Winters Bone, "never ask for what outta be offered". I got up and started putting my garbage away when the girl ran up behind me and said hey, we're really sorry for the wait, would you like a free oatmeal raisen? I played it cool. Was all, a cookie? hmmm? no it's okay, well you know what, yeah, that would be nice, thank you.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
