214. September 6, 2022 - Once, when I was very young, I joined a javelin throwing competition. I couldn't find a javelin, so I substituted for an unwilling labrador. There was no clear target, so I substituted for a brightly colored stroller. There was no actual javelin competition, so I substituted for an elementary school spelling bee. I feel I've clearly explained the situation, but according to the newspapers in 1994, I "hurled an aging dog at an occupied baby stroller during a community children's event". History, after all, is written by the victor, and my spelling was poor.
