In the spirit of the Olympics, I thought I’d share about how I won a medal for wrestling. Yes, in my youth, I was a wrestler. Mostly because I couldn’t dribble, catch, hit, shoot, or pass. But as a clumsy little 8-year-old in a singlet, I was a pretty below average wrestler. This surprised no one. But once I won a medal. 

I don’t know if you’ve noticed how the bracket system works, but in these competitions of grit and technique, if you win, you go in to the winner’s bracket, and fight more winners. Losers drop to the loser’s bracket where they duke it out for second place.

The thing with this gladiator display was that once I lost my first match, there was no one else in my weight class to wrestle. So, I automatically made it to the end. Every time a new match was announced, there was nobody there. So, I advanced. Until it was all over, and I was given a third place medal. For losing. And honestly, it felt kinda good.

Anyway, let’s get on with the story.

And now, Carry On, Jeeves, Part 2 of 10, by P.G. Wodehouse.
