I'll be the one sitting outside...

I remember back in the day (it's what I say when I'm not sure what decade I'm talking about) we were watching Little House on the Prairie & Mary (or was it Half Pint?) was about to get her first kiss. I couldn't stand it - I had to go out into the hallway & let my mom tell me when it was safe to come back.

This is behavior that Dr. M is familiar with - he knows that I may jump up at any moment & decide that the bathroom mirror really needs to be cleaned. But this evening I may just have to not be in the room at all while my Braves are playing the one game National League wildcard play-in game. Single Elimination! I really really don't think my heart can stand it - & when I consider that it might be Chipper Jones' very last game EVER. Gah!

I'm pretty much working myself up into a frenzy. Partly because I like frenzy - it's entertaining - & partly because that's easier than thinking about politics (gah again!).

The game starts in a little over an hour. I'll be the one sitting out back with my head between my knees...

I got the picture from here.

  1. I giggled at this thought and then realised that I did exactly the same...Dr. Who..lots of detective stories etc....!

  2. I've done that before as well. Okay, sort of. Didn't leave the room, just switched to another channel and occasionally switched back for an update. The nerves are so active they could light up a house for a night!

  3. I do that when something terribly violent is about to happen, particularly torture or long beatings of the hero/heroine. I leave the room and make H tell me what happened.

  5. I'm still the same. When politics comes up in conversation, I load the dishwasher!

  8. Keep telling yourself to take long deep breaths. I don't want you to pass out with excitement.

  9. I do that when I'm watching a drama and I just know that something horrible is about to happen. I figure it can happen without my watching it. I'm such a wuss. That's one reason why I would rather read a book. That way, I can put the book down, take a few deep breaths, and soldier on. (That makes me think...I suppose I could use the Pause button.)

  10. Oh so sorry about Chipper's last game. And that the Braves left ten men on base during the game. And the awful calls. And the abominable reaction of some fans. I suspect that you did a lot of jumping around during that game.

  11. That was so depressing that I didn't even have to leave the room! Gah! So, how about those Reds?

  13. I do believe you own a Tigers shirt...

    So sorry for your loss. Really, I am. Now go put your Own October t-shirt on and root for Miggie. He's such a humble human for someone who wears three crowns!
