When the soccer coordinator called and said: "You said on your form you would volunteer as an assistant coach if we were desperate." I laughed it off and asked if that's what they needed; someone as reticent as me - who actually scribbled in the words "if you are desperate" on the registration form.
Then he dropped the bomb. "No, we need a head coach."
That's when I really started paying attention. I got up off the couch, told the bains to turn down the movie and went into my office/laundry room. After a long moment of silence I asked for the details.
Games when I want them, I can make sure my nephew is on our team and I can pick the color of the jersey. What a deal.
I cannot for the life of me come up with a reason I really truly have to say no...but at the same time am terrified of saying yes.
It came out before I was ready.
Yes, I'll coach.
