I'm writing this from the fine city of Lethbridge, where my team, the Prairie Fire, is getting ready for the B Division final tomorrow morning. We missed the bottom of the A Division by 1.5 seconds... But there's also something to be said for not having to race against the professionals. Regardless, we're in pretty good spirits right now - not only because of the final, but also because we just won $250 for having the best chant/song of the festival.
Perhaps I should also mention that I wrote the song, in addition to being the only one on the team that sang it, while everyone else clapped and added background vocals.
I'm not sure whether I should be proud if having gotten paid for my writing, or if I should be proud of having gotten paid for my singing...
Oh, who am I kidding? I know that I got paid for the air guitar solo I did with my paddle, screaming "meedleymeedleymeedleymeeeee" until the microphone cut out.
I can live with that.
