Sometimes you don’t notice how much you depend on things until they’re gone. Take for instance, the scoreboard at the Middle School’s football field. At last night’s game, one of the prevailing topics of conversation among the spectators was, “What is the score?” It almost would have been preferable for the scoreboard to be turned off entirely, but instead it had sections of many of the digital numbers working only intermittently, resulting in scores like, “CO to Y” with “LOOP” remaining in the “rabbit with a square head” quarter.
The final score was “C backward-F to Gamma P”, which apparently meant we won. GO, TEAM!
