Numeric warmth betrayed. Yes, yes, a vivid 37 degrees it will be, per the phone’s unfeeling display. Go forth and experience the springtime bliss!

Shivering was among the topics discussed among spectators at today’s polo matches. By all accounts the games were good, lingering thumb pains aside. But windy. Windy in cold. A helicopter touched down nearby, a creature of wind. So what I’m apparently saying is coldness is negated by getting to witness a bladed beast hover overhead (our resident ambulance EMT was on hand to explain the likely type of injury the patient-in-helicopter had, based on nearby hospital specialties).

Got to make two new mallets whilst courtside. A momentous event indeed, having stuck by a singular whacker for perhaps two years now (finally [and forcefully] deceased after a recent overpowering mallet-to-mallet confrontation). Heads from Copenhagen (and about 50 stickers on the shaft to boot), garage-sale ski poles, white cloth handlewraps.

Polo Sundays.
