Really, I'm not one of those people with all sorts of superstitions, but I can't help but to get all wrapped up in this.
Every single trial that Bill has come to this year has been a total bust, not a single double Q the whole weekend, and every weekend that Bill doesn't come has resulted in at least one double Q...sometimes more. I need to break this weird pattern, I like Bill, I did marry him after all : ) and sometimes he really needs to be there.
We're trialing this weekend, and Kittie is running for her MACH! Just one double Q is all that's needed. Bill would like to be there, but has other plans he would gladly do instead (the dirty dozen bike race, it tackles all the major hills in the city and makes a stop at the vintage grand prix). Everyone has an opinion about whether Bill should be allowed to come! Everything from hell no, leave him home, to he definitely *needs* to be there, to run standard, if I Q call him to come for JWW.........I just don't know what to do. It's our MACH, I really want him around, but I want to actual get the title too!
I don't really do anything different when Bill's there, I may be a bit more focused...okay more obsessive when he's not there, but really I don't think there's a big difference....other than the obvious results.
