(just plain awful) Friday

Posted by willkay on June 20, 2010

It has taken two days before I can actually type anything up about Friday, two days and the pain is still there.

Friday morning saw me in school at the usual time, however there were no students there! (Although there was a reported sighting of Larizza?) The school had to be set up for the fiesta in the evening, and the multi-activity room needed to be prepared for Monday. Working as a team, the teachers managed to get everything done by 10 o’clock. At that point, Miss Lilian thinking she was doing the nice thing, let me go home to watch the England match on television. It was kind of her, but in the long run I think I’d have rather stayed at school, and missed the match.

It was awful, painfully awful. I spent most of the game with my head under a cushion, trying to avoid watching yet-another-kick-to-nowhere. Don’t get me wrong. I love football. I love the World Cup. Every four years, when the World Cup comes round, I am fixed to the television set. This year, the time difference has been a little difficult but, thanks to the internet, I’ve been able to keep up with most matches. And, whisper this quietly, this year I thought England were going to do well. I could see them getting to the semi-finals without too much difficulty. And,once you are in the last four, with two games to go??? You know, in my heart, I thought England had a chance this year, a chance to win the World Cup. But what happened? At this moment, the chance to get through to the next round isn’t just in our hands, it also relies on the failure of others (specifically USA). All of a sudden, a dead-cert has turned into a dead-donkey.

The one joy in all this has been Mexico. I spent an hour on the phone this morning (Sunday), with my mum. She is very excited about Mexico, loved the fact that they beat the French, and has now adopted Mexico as her country! Of curse, there is always the advantage that Mexico could face Argentina, and put them out in the next round. Which, for an Englishman is always good news (after the Hand-of-God goal).

Anyhoo, Monday! Monday will be The Final Presentation at 8am. Tuesday is Mexico v Uruguay at 7am. Wednesday is England v Slovenia at 7am. Thursday is the last day in school (for the sixth grade). Friday is Disney. Busy week ahead.
