Linda told us that Dave sometimes talks to the student body at morning chapel. "He tells them about that game and about how when life seems to serve you a...ah...broccoli sandwich, it can set off a whole other chain of events that are positive."
As we walked to the door, I asked Linda if Dave had ever seemed bitter. She said no. "That game was a factor in our meeting, but not in our life together."
"Our life together," Doc repeated afterward. "That's key. She could've said our lives together."
"Maybe he wasn't bitter, but I think, somehow, we helped him bury it," I said.
"You just think of that? Hosehead," Doc said.
