Tiger? Not Interested!
The other day there was a big golf tournament behind the MB building at Scripps on that very golf course that blocks so inconveniently the ocean view. It happened to be that Americans fancied Tiger Woods again for his talented golfing, so he happened to be there, too. Because of another inconvenient building in front of the sparse windows in our lab, I could not watch him.
Let's make it clear, before he was known for his girlfriends I even did not know who Tiger Woods was, thinking that he was an imaginary character that I remember to be somehow mentioned in a movie once (Who would be called Tiger Woods in real?). Having the comments in mind that I would get on my facebook post stating I saw Tiger Woods, I teamed up with my co-worker (who I speculate had the same intention as I, but that is only speculation...) and ran outside to see him shoot/pitch/putt (however it is called:). My co-worker actually had to point Tiger out to me, because I even would not have recognized him.
We had a really good view and as soon as we had some nice pictures, we ran back to the lab to post them on facebook. I did not get any comment, not even a like, whereas my co-worker got plenty. I was so disappointed. At least I remember the joy of anticipation of admiring comments. Apparently my friends are more authentic than I am. May they be my role model in the future.
