It's been said that the three most sought after and prized blessings to leave BYU with are:
- A spouse
- A degree
- An intramural champion shirt
There was one night this semester when I had a basketball game and volleyball game at the same time, and, seeing no other options, I played in both. I would substitute out of one game, run down the hall to the other gymnasium, switch my jersey, and substitute into the second game. I did this several times until my basketball team was down by over twenty points and then I just stuck with volleyball. Everything worked out except when I called a volleyball player out for a double-dribble and the tried to spike the basketball into the hoop on a 'serve.' I'm pulling really hard to get that meritorious shirt. I'm thinking if we developed some sort of idioglossia on my basketball team we would be more successful, but when I suggested it to my captain he thought I called him a 'glassy idiot' and benched me during the timeout.
P.S. I looked up some synonyms for the word 'throes' on www.thesaurus.com and they suggested I search for the phrase: "What are the Germans experiencing while in the throes of Shadenfreude?" Do yo have an answer to that puzzling question?
