"How long ago did you get back from your mission?"
"I got home about two years ago."
"'re old."

Is that Gavin MacGregor?

Today after CB's basketball game one of the eighth graders from the other team looked up at Gavin and said, "Is that Gavin MacGregor? I named my fantasy basketball team after you!" Gavin's famous. I don't think there is one eighth grader on the planet that knows who I am. Basketball games aren't for me. I don't have the personality for them. Too loud. Too much booing and trash talking. Griggity Griggity Gross. I'd rather be used as hippo bait.

When it snowed recently I was walking home from work. There were footprints all over, but I made sure I walked in the fresh snow. It reminded me of a walk I took last year. It was really late at night and I was out walking by myself. There weren't any cars driving by or people outside. Just snow falling quietly. I walked around for a while without any direction and then started walking towards the temple. My footprints were the only ones in the snow that night. Often I'd look back to see how far my footprints went and then I'd look forward to see the untouched snow. It's about time that pumpkin outside our apartment jumped off the nearest bridge.

I saw a hummingbird today. It told me, "Many of your ideas are becoming real." I got the hiccups too. They told me, "Many of your ideas are becoming real."I ate a fortune cookie. It told me, "Many of your ideas are becoming real." Really? huh. I guess that's good news. I passed all my classes; one of them just barely. It's a new year. I'm home sick. Some of my resolutions can't be started until I'm back in Provo. Just a couple more days.
