Playing pool

If you know me, you know that I play pool. As in billiards. Specifically, I play 8 ball. Much to my amazement, I’ve been on the same pool team for 28 years. Yeah. The same team. Well, the same treat because it’s got the same name and two of us have been on it continuously for the duration. There was a point in my life where 10 years was a long time. Then there was a time where 20 years seemed like a long time. Now that I’m approaching the third decade of doing this, I’m thinking 50 years is not a long time. In fact, I hope I keep playing and getting better. I don’t want to be that old guy that’s been playing forever that kids in their 20s can beat. So far, I’m not. But at some point, I might be. Here’s to making that far far into the future. And kids – remember, I’d much rather take age and wisdom over youth and enthusiasm. Said like a true curmudgeon.
