Last night at dinner, I was trying to explain to Glen his soccer team assignment and schedule. “You start practice next Friday, and your first game is next Saturday. The name of the team is, uh…something that starts with an ‘S.’ Scoliosis? Scurvy?”
After some discussion, we decided the name of the team was the Scorpions, but we were kind of tickled by a team called the Scurvies, and we tried to think of disease names for the other. We came up with the Staphs instead of the Storm, the Worms instead of Wolfpack, the Fibroids for Firebolts, and so on.
It’s possible that writing about new cures for nasty diseases every day might be warping my brain a bit.
