On my other blog I participate in a little meme called Six Word Saturday. I have done it here before. The skinny is you give your six words and if you want you can explain them. So, now that we’ve explained that go review the title of this post.
Here are my six words:
I go to work. Sox lose.
Last Friday, I started a job at a box factory. It is an assignment from a temp company. I work the second shift 3-11. We didn’t work on Monday as it was the 4th of July. Since then every day this week the White Sox have played or finishing playing while I have been making boxes. They now have lost 4 games in a row. This may not seem like a big deal. But it is. Box making is hard work and generally speaking my family is asleep when I get home, I would like a bit of good news like say a White Sox victory. Also, last week they got to .500 for the first time since early April. For those stopping in from Six Word Saturday who might not know what .500 means it means they have won as many games as they’ve lost. Now with these 4 losses they are back to below .500 where they will remain through the All Star break and perhaps the rest of their season.
Maybe if I quit my job they will start winning again. Although back then they only won 1/2 the time and I didn’t get paid. So, I think I’ll keep working.
