I was at my best friend's softball game Friday night, and--due to a shortage of players--her coach asked me to be a substitute in the game. I was wearing one of my old #13 softball jerseys (I have an abundance of them since I'm always that number), but the coach said that I had to change into a different numbered jersey since one of his players had already claimed theirs of the same number. He had conveniently brought along two extra jerseys: a Medium and an XXL. He distractedly asked me what size I would be most comfortable playing in, mindlessly tossing me the Medium in mid-sentence. And guess what the jersey number was?! Number 9, Number 9, Number 9...and, with a new number, I hit a home run!

Tell me, folks: was it coincidence, or was it fate?! a-hard-days-night-paul-4a-hard-days-night-ringo-6a-hard-days-night-john-6Just kidding...although I was super stoked to coincidentally be stuck with #9!

I always hope to get a number 9 in everything. We have team based learning, and my group is number 10...so close!

Hey, Kedame, I think that would be an awesome example to put in the "You Know You're A Hardcore Beatles Fan When..." thread. ahdn_george_08And I'm kind of the same way when it comes to numbers. I remember thinking, "Well--if I can't have my beloved #13, it had better be John's beloved #9!". And what do you know? Someone listened. a-hard-days-night-george-10 I'm pretty sure I looked like a kid on Christmas morning when that jersey was given to me: I know for a fact my face lit up with a stupidly huge grin when I realized what number I had...and then I kind of got flappy hands for a moment and did a mini celebratory jig... a-hard-days-night-john-7

Yesterday, Zag and I were watching the USAF Thunderbirds as part of an air show that was going on in our area. There were six planes doing various stunts, mostly in groups of 3, 4 and individually. Near the end of the show, they all flew together in formation. At that point, someone near us shouted, "Look - they're all together now!"

We just looked at each other and answered "all together now."

I love how she gets me.a-hard-days-night-paul-7

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

My friends kept talking about this girl we were all supposed to meet up with named Julia (I think we all know where this story is headed). It's amazing how truly catchy that song is when your ears are being bombarded with its name... a-hard-days-night-george-4

Here, have this. Slightly off topic, but a Britpop gem.

I had another Beatley moment yesterday. I tutor for kids who don't have it as good, and they go to this after school center to get help with homework or to hang out. One girl said that she had a birthday soon and that it was October 9th. I said "oh, you have the same birthday as John Lennon!" and she asked me who John Lennon was. It made me pretty sad to know that she didn't know who he was, but I realized that nobody had told her about the Beatles at home.

So I said, "John Lennon was an awesome musician. Probably one of the best of all time!" and another girl said "Like Bach?" and I said "yeah, just a different type of music." a-hard-days-night-john-1

You make your own dream.
