Mark's First 2-A-Day

It was an early morning for my little guy today. He was up at 6:00 a.m. and out the door by 6:40 to head to the football field. I dropped him off and headed to work. I couldn't tell if he was nervous or not but I suspect he might have been. All morning I watched the clock wondering what he and his teammates were doing. Was he drinking enough water? Was he being careful with his glasses?

Finally 11:30 arrived and I left to go pick him up. He walked to the car looking so tired. I asked him how it went and he said "it was horrible". But he didn't seem defeated. He said he was starving and wanted a burger to eat. So we went to grab some food and then I took him home, administered some Aleve to him, told him to take a cool shower after he finished eating and promised to call and check on him soon and headed back to work. I called to check on him about an hour later and he said he felt much better. The first 2-A-Day is in the books, now he just has to get through 6 more!
