We drove four hours for the soccer tournament but the thunderstorm followed us. It rolled in from the west and lightning sparked across the darkened sky.
We sat in the car trying to keep our hopes up.
As we waited for a decision, there was a commotion in the parking lot. The rain was gone but everyone was out of their vehicles exclaiming and taking photos.
It was a full double.
We were in awe.
Later, they canceled the game.
There's also a step where you whip an egg white into a foam and fold it in. I could do better folding next time, too.

We went to this old bookstore in New York City and it was overwhelming. They had several floors of books, some were even kept in a temperature and humidity controlled room. I am on the lookout for a very old book by Mabel Osgood, but they didn't have it here. Still, I enjoyed browsing the aisles and even got to climb a ladder to reach a book from the top shelf.
I think about how these old books got here and who owned them. Some had inscriptions, "To so-and-so, from Mother." Was it the book that person always wanted?
Have they all been read, or just passed from person to person? Is it the kind of book you flip through? Is there one book that everyone who owned it thinks, "One day, when I have the time, I'll read this book" but it's never happened?
