I’ve played a little fast and loose with the rally’s
timeline in this part; this year, it took the driving teams and the rest of the
retinue two days to get from the actual finish to Essaouira, where they had the
closing celebratory ceremonies. I plead
particularly how I left things at the end of part 1. Mostly, though, I just
wanted to get them to lovely Essaouira. Because everyone should have some
“Et maintenant?” Driss asks.
And now? It is late in the day, this last day, and he
and Myka are driving their last drive together, towards the finish. The finish
at Essaouira: lovely breezy city by the sea.
“Quoi?” she asks back, as blank a What? as she can manage. He gives her a littletch, adon’t play dumb
noise, so she says, “Je pas.” I
don’t know. Another tch. “Je sais pas ce qu’elle veut.” I don’t
know what she wants.
“Toutes les meufs, elles veulent la même.” All the
girls, they want the same. He’s very confident; his take it easy tone is clear.
“Moi, ouais?” Me, yeah?
That sends him into hysterics, as intended. He deserves some
reward, however small, for having put up with Myka, and for being who he’s been
about the whole thing. She grins at him and says, “Tous les mecs, ils veulent
la même aussi.” All the guys, they want the same thing too. “Les détails.” The
He laughs again and settles in to cajole her into divulging
any and all details regarding what she has got up to with women.
Thought about a track workout this afternoon, ran down to the local Buffalo State college track, apparently it closes early on Fridays, good thing, I was sore and tired, and probably would have had a bad workout. Ran back home through the grounds of the adjacent luxury hotel that was converted recently from an insane asylum housed in a magnificent H H Richardson designed structure. Really looking forward to doing some speed intervals, my college days beckon. I’ll try again tomorrow, should be more rested and the track will be open. Now I’m about to have some pierogies and beer. Happy Friday friends!
“Don’t get me wrong… a lot of wrestling… sucks. But, when it’s good? It’s fucking GREAT.”
In only 24 hours, this video has gotten over a half a million views on YouTube, and for good reason. Max Landis’ Wrestling Isn’t Wrestling is a fan’s story on the evolution of Triple H (albeit, slightly inaccurate), told along with a parody video featuring women actors as the guys, and vice versa. It’s astonishingly well-done, and worth watching, even though you’ll be like “24 minutes? Yeah right!” Trust me, it’s awesome.
It also features a TON of great cameos, including Joey Ryan, Johnny Mundo, Macaulay Culkin, Seth Green, Cryme Tyme, Haley Joel Osment, Drake Bell, Colt Cabana, and stars the impeccable Chloe Dykstra as Triple H. Trust me when I say, this is WELL worth the watch. The summation at the end will touch your heart, as a wrestling fan, because it totally nails why we all love it.
