The exercise:

Write four lines of prose about: the league.

I didn't get any shifts at the community centre for the next two week pay period, so suddenly my schedule has opened wide for baby's arrival. We shall see what the coming weeks bring.

Speaking of which, I should probably get a couple of posts ready to go up to cover my expected absence from the blog.

And maybe catch up on comments some time soon.

Haha, just kidding.

Sigh.

Mine:

Harry pulled up his jogging pants as he moved to respond to the knocking on his front door, kicking empty beer cans out of his way as he went.

"Harold Browning," the police officer waiting on his front porch greeted him, "boyfriend of Maria 'Longest Legs in America' Isabella Sanchez, the supermodel?"

"Yeah," Harry replied after a lengthy and enthusiastic burp, "that'd be yours truly."

"You're under arrest for dating out of your league... like, way, way out of your league."

I guess that's a mixed blessing: you're free for the arrival of the baby, but the money from the work would come in useful with the arrival of a new baby. I hope it works out better that you're off and not working :)
Haha, I like Harry, but I can completely see why he was arrested. I wonder who shopped him though...?

The League
Simon felt his gut clench and his knees tremble as he stood outside the door, waiting, waiting. He'd knocked what seemed like an eternity ago, and even though he was sure his cover was solid, the wait made him doubt, and then feel certain that it'd been blown. When the door finally opened and a man with two black eyes, four surviving teeth, abrasions all down his left arm and braces on both knees let him in the wave of relief made him break out in a sweat. This was it, he was inside the hallway of the home of Ice Hockey's blackest, most secretive league, and he was going to write the exposé of his life.

Greg - turned out to be more on the less positive side, but I'm sure I made use of the time somehow. I guess I'll find out as I read the coming posts, as I have no memory of this time right now :p

Hah, I would read that expose. And probably watch the movie as well!
