“Whew!  Tough game, Tuluki!”

“Pulled it out, Clifford!  Fourteen – Seven. We’d gone for a field goal, been a tie.”

“Hate ties.  Buster can make point after.  Can’t nail a field goal.  Kinda jinxed.”

“Say, Cliff?”


“Can you drop me off downtown?  I’ll walk home from there.”

“Not going to the dance?”

“Nah.  Asked Crystal.  Turned me down cold.”

“Guess I can drop you off.”

“Whoa!  There’s a note here in my jacket pocket!”

“What’s it say?”

“Meet me at the dance.”

“Whosit from?”

“Says Crystal.”

“Guess she had a change of heart!”

“Me too.  Just drop me off downtown.”

Then you’ve US(of)A history, so you’re probably familiar with HS football, the pomp, the game, the dance after, and as a youth (long ago) yourself, moments of disappointment and young love’s difficulties. Do well, Sir!

      1. I sure do. I went to HS in the states and except for the football, everything else is quite clear. There I played what you guys call soccer…
        Take good care my friend.
