I cannot help but feel I am forgetting something. My staff asked me whether or not I had heard news from the Olympics yet, and how the competition went—did I have involvement with some competition? It feels like one of our many sons or pets was competing there. Was it Tagg? It might have been Tagg.
I shall have to ask him how he did. I must confess I have not been following the Olympics very closely this time around. I tried at one point, but the network coverage seemed to have completely ignored the ski jumping and slalom events, which were the ones I was most interested in. The ski jumping competition was quite enjoyable during my own Olympics in Utah. They are very precise in their measurements of the height of the hill, and I am fond of any event that involves such accurate quantification of things. Ski jumping sounds like something Tagg would be competing in, but I cannot even find newspaper mentions of it.
P.S. After talking with Ann, it turns out that it was, of course, one of our horses that was in the Olympic Games. I remember that now. It was my idea for that horse to compete. It was also my idea for that horse to win an Olympic medal, however, so it remains to be seen whether they will fully follow through with my advice.
P.P.S. Tagg says he did not compete this year, and that as far as he knows no ski jump competitions will even be held this year. It appears the rumors of London not being prepared for these games was true after all. I will be chastising them at length for this, Mr. Diary.
P.P.P.S. My staff suggests to me that chastising London for this would not be taken well on the campaign trail, and that I should refrain. While they have no doubt that I would be correct in pointing out London's many failures, they have convinced me that not mentioning them would be seen as the more statesmanlike position.
