Earplugs, Sisters, and Finished!

I don’t know how I always manage to get my three beautiful things posted so much earlier on Mondays that I work than the ones I don’t, but, well… Just one of the mysteries of me, I guess.

Here are three beautiful things from the past week:

1. I went to a Capitals game on Saturday, and one of their gimmicks when there is a long time out is the “smile cam,” which searches out the fan with the biggest smile to win a prize. (I think it is sponsored by dentists. Seriously.) The winner was a little boy with a massive, goofy grin and — rather inexplicably, as hockey isn’t especially loud — gigantic, neon-green ear plugs. He brought a smile to everyone’s faces.

2. In a moment of hilarious awkwardness, my brother introduced himself to one of my friends last night at the Springsteen show as “Sarah’s sister.” I know he meant to say “Sarah is my sister” but it cracked me up. I’m thinking that having a huge laugh at my brother’s expense should not be a beautiful thing, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t.

3. I finally finished knitting the mohair scarf of doom, which means I can move on to a new project with yarn that doesn’t drive me insane. Yeah! (It is awfully pretty, though, even though I thought I was going to lose my mind making it.)

    Sisters, eh? You got my attention with that (was trying to think what possibly could have made that list). Even though it has nothing to do with me, it made me smile and laugh.

    See you in a couple days.

    #2 is great! Could it POSSIBLY have something to do with the pre-concert Giant game viewing which was held in a bar??? From what I hear, everyone had a fantastic time. Enjoy the 2nd one!

    @ Sweetpea’s Mom: Their group certainly looked to be having a great time at the Springsteen show. I saw a lot of laughing and dancing from my vantage point a few sections away.
