Overtime Grandpa

My family, who are all big-time sports fans, was watching the NBA finals with our grandchildren. I had just turned 55 and was feeling a little wistful. The Spurs trailing by 8 points against the Heat on fourth quarter wasn’t helping.

“You know,” I said to our grandson, Daniel, “it’s not easy getting old. I guess I’m in the fourth quarter now.”

“Don’t worry, Grandpa,” Daniel said cheerily, “Maybe you’ll go into overtime.”

He gave me a smile and although the Spurs lost, I still enjoyed the game. Fun times.

About Vincenzo Rossi

I am Vincy Rossi, a retired lawyer and would you believe that after several decades of practice, I can conclude that the constitution, no matter who you are or whatever you do, only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself. The secret of happiness is YOU and that SMILE you're wearing right now.
