If I ever needed proof that I am not in charge of the universe, today is yet another in a long line of days to add to my my imaginary evidence folder, because if I were in charge of the universe, I would have finished the 2014 World Cup soccer ball in time for the opening kick off, and instead, I am writing a hurry up blog post.
