Cute thing that happened at work this afternoon.

So I run team games at break - it’s like an extension of P.E but less structured and more fun. We do different games every day, and today was dodgeball. One of the youngest in team games is this 6 year old girl called Belle who seemed really deflated and anxious when I told her what we would be playing today. She tells me she’s worried about playing with the big kids because they’re too rough, says she’s not good at dodgeball. I reassure her that she’ll be fine, then one of the older kids comes over and puts an arm over her and tells her she’ll show her how to play. It was fucking adorable watching these kids look out for her.

Near the end of the game everyone on Belle’s team stopped throwing balls at the other team for a moment to give Belle a chance to throw the ball by herself. I didn’t tell them to do this, they chose to, I’m just a bystander at this point. This throw could potentially win the game for them. It was tense.

Anyway so they all gather around Belle and crouch down to her level, whispering tips, telling her where to aim and that she can do it. Meanwhile these five older lads on the other team are standing there laughing, and this smug little shit makes some joke about little girls being crap at dodgeball, says there’s no way they’re going to win if they let Belle throw the ball.

Then suddenly this big red ball flies through the air at fucking lightning speed and smacks smug little shit right in the mouth. He and everyone else on his team were so busy cracking jokes about her that they didn’t see it coming, they lost, Belle won the game, and everybody cheered and gave her hugs and high fives. Belle and smug little shits faces when they realised what had just happened were priceless.

Anyway it made my day, and I think there’s a moral in this so I thought I would share.

I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.
