And I'm not talking about the fruit here. Nope, it's about flags. Hundreds of orange colored flags in my block alone. With the TV screen to my left and my laptop to the right, I try to get some writing done between cheering for Villa and praying the Netherlands won't have to face our devilishly well playing neighbours in the finals. Anything but that! Just a few more days and we'll finally know if the Netherlands will be the new World Champion. For me to find out if I'll ever learn to tell a decent tale will take a lot longer. I'm hoping to learn from the more experienced writers here and with their help perhaps some day create the same amount of suspense as Suarez provided with a flick of the wrist in the match against Ghana. Here's to hoping!
