Today’s Perfect Mantra

What is that old expression about a thousand monkeys typing at a thousand typewriters….they would eventually produce every single one of Shakespeare’s sonnets? I understand that the point is that something that could happen, statistically, probably, will eventually happen. I get it.

Today was one of those days.

180 005.jpg

While randomly throwing darts in my basement while watching Alabama play football, I did something that I really didn’t think would happen.  I hit a 180.  (insert long callout by darts announcer here “one hundred and eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighty!”)  I have seen some people at the Legion do it, even one of my teammates.  I had hoped it would happen, but figured it was a few years off.

Sadly it was in my basement with only my camera to record it, but still. I feel pretty pumped about it.  And  rather than downplay the whole thing, as I often sometimes do,  I am going to revel in it.  I know I did it.  I now know I can do it.  I also know something else that is important (important enough to put bold text on it and put it in the centre of this blog).

If I did it once, I can do it again.

If I did it once, I can do it again.

We’re calling that Today’s Perfect Mantra. I may have to get t-shirts made.

    As someone who can’t even hit the board half the time, I bow in humble admiration of your achievement. GOOD FOR YOU!

    Now … as for those monkeys typing away, I have one question: Who is going to clean all of those typewriters after the experiment is over? Ha ha.
