The United States and the Winter Olympics.

The United States and the winter olympics is a generally sad situation. Let's face it, WE DON'T DO WINTER SPORTS VERY WELL! We dominate the summer olympics, and we barely squeek through in the winter.

Thank God for snowboarders, it is in that sport which our hope lies (We seem to be ok in speed skating thanks to Chad Hedrick).

Enough of my rant about the Olympics. Now, I will tell you a story about a young man who tried to be smooth. (Key word: tried!)

I enter the first set of doors at the same time as this young man at the mall. Than, he walks over and says, "Let me get the door for you" as he holds the automatic door open that was already opened and was quickly closing on his hand. After the uncomfortable laugh he got from me he quickly realized that he had to recover this pathetic moment... So, he opens the real door for me. I once again laugh uncomfortably and say thank you.
It would seem that the uncomfortable situation was over... oh no! He follows me into the music store (I am starting to get worried), I turn around and look back at him with a very uncertain look. He laughs uncomfortably and says, "You have to stop this, you're making me look like I'm following you!" Once again, I laugh uncomfortably and walk away as fast as possible.

That was my evening.
