"Your task is not to seek for love; but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself, that you have built against it." ~~ A Course in MiraclesAs I wasn't home to watch Ghana playing in the quarter-finals of the World Cup, I kept wondering what the score was. When I walked past this pub and saw lots of people standing outside, I asked one guy what the score was. He said it was 1-0 to Ghana and he wanted Ghana to win. I asked him if he'd watched England's last game and he said he had and he thought the game was "shite." I told him I agreed with his expert analysis. We also agreed that despite England's lacklustre performance, we still loved England. Then I said goodbye to my friend.
Later I started wondering if the scores had changed. When I noticed this bookmakers (betting shop) was still open, I went in and asked what the score was. It was 1-1 and they were about to start the penalty. One man even invited me to stay and watch it with them but I declined.
A few minutes later, I saw three teenage boys walking down the street and asked them if they knew what the scores were. They told me it was still 1-1 and they were about to shoot the penalties. One asked me if I was supporting Ghana. I said I was supporting England but look what happened to them. I then said goodbye to them.
About a minute from home I noticed this man sitting in his car listening to the football on the radio. I asked him what the final scores were and he told me Ghana had lost. He said he was very disappointed as he wanted Ghana to go through. He said he's originally from Egypt and wanted an African country to do well. I wished him well.
Just as well I have no problem talking to people. Otherwise, I would have had to wait till I got home to find out the final result.
I am open to receive love any time, any place and everywhere.
