I didn’t post yesterday cause yesterday was a busy busy day and when I got home, it was kinda late, I was tired and frankly too funned out to post anything.
The Past Pupils association of our school (which I belong to now) played a cricket match against the current under-19 school cricket team. The Past Pupils cricket team was made up of guys who had played cricket in their day at school so thankfully, I wasn’t in the team.
Anyway, the match started at 9.00 am and went on till around 5.30 pm. It was at this small ground right on top of a hill so if any of those who attended found cricket boring, they could a) Enjoy the scenery or b) jump right off.
But the match was fun and it was me and a couple of others who were managing the scoreboard. It was one of those antique ones where the numbers have to be placed by hand and wheels have to be turned and such. It could have been hard work but the place behind the scoreboard was perhaps the best place from which to watch the match. A cool breeze and no sunlight. Absolute bliss.
There was much eating, drinking (of non-alcoholic variety), joking and meeting some old faces here and there. A thoroughly fun day and one I expected to be anything but.
The Past Pupils Cricket team won with a nail biting finish.
1. Look before you leap. Or more relevantly Only climb up to high lofts if there is a nice and easy way to climb back down without risking breaking your neck.
2. Always eat Kit-Kats before they melt. Never wait till they melt. It makes it such a pain to tear off the wrapping and break it to hear that satisfying crunch.
