Perhaps my mind turned to baseball yesterday because spring was in the air, even though I hadn't recalled that today would be the first day of spring. I hadn't recalled that today is Bach's birthday either. Didn't send him a card or anything. Heard "Sleepers, Wake" this morning on the radio, and how appropriate was that! Well, not really appropriate for the liturgical season, being more of an Advent tune, but certainly appropriate for my state of mind, which would be soporific.
And doesn't that sound like it should be a compliment? As in "Man, that baseball game was totally soporific!" I'm sure that in the right crowd one could slip that in and get away with it.
