Sad that up here in the AK, hockey isn’t any damned better.

I wish we could tell our kids the truth (the big deals here will have their best days here, and it’s all downhill from there) and have them really, truly believe it strongly enough that those stupid words out of stupid mouths wouldn’t manage to sting.

Those stings add up. And your son, and mine, will push forward because they’re made of stronger stuff.

But it will never stop breaking my heart. ❤

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
