Remember the film "The Ten Commandments"? The epic one with Charlton Heston.  It comes on every Easter. Well, there's a scene where Moses' family was having dinner and all of the firstborn children were being murdered. All-around them screams of horror. They kept eating and chanting and just trying to get through the night. 

For some reason that is what I remind myself of this evening. Alone in the house, quiet. I hear kids running around outside, and every now and then some excited drunken screams from some of the big outdoor neighborhood parties nearby. I just keep thinking if I can make it through tonight, when I wake up tomorrow Derby will be over. 

It's ridiculous, sad, and hilarious all at the same time.
