Summit Up

Special to the Daily Wendy Carroll, Andrew Leonardi and Dominick Leonardi got engaged on February 22. We say good luck on your new and interesting lives together.

Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column receiving masses of communication – phone calls, e-mails, dreams – from long-lost friends.Contrary to popular cliches, this doesn’t mean it’s a small world or that old friends are made of a certain precious transition metal.We’re just happy to have re-established contact.

***Leslie’s e-mail brought us down off our happy high with this Scum Alert!! Scum Alert!!She writes: “I am wondering if you do scum alerts for a person that ruined my Mother’s Day dinner? I believe this coward deserves such an alert and also bad karma sent her way …

I was having a nice dinner with my husband and two children last night at a restaurant (I will leave it nameless) in Frisco to celebrate Mother’s Day. My children (20 months and 6 years) were conversing while waiting a long time for their food. They were not out of their seats, throwing food, screaming or anything other than speaking to one another. Once, I had to reprimand them for speaking too loud. A coward for a woman came to our table, dropped a note, and sprinted for the door. The note said, ‘Your children are adorable. It’s too bad they have parents that do not teach them how to behave in public.’ Upon reading the note, I looked for her and she had already left.Not only did this woman butt into our once-nice dinner, she passed judgment on me when it is not her place to do so. She ruined my Mother’s Day and an enjoyable expensive dinner out with my family. I am the first to discipline my children in public and respect other people’s right to enjoy their evening out. I have received compliments from many people on how nice our children behave when they are in public. I am done with my rant, I just want that woman to understand how her buttinski was not appreciated.BTW … I asked the waitress and other patrons if my children were out of line and I got a resounding ‘NO.'”

***Courtney Hibbs wrote in to celebrate a stellar performance. She says: “The girls Summit Lacrosse team dominated in the Eagle Lax Jam this weekend, winning first place in the tournament. The tournament took place on Saturday and Sunday, they played Eagle and Vail two times on Edwards’ turf field. The first game they lost to Vail and won over Eagle, and then beat Eagle again on Sunday and beat Vail, 6-0, scoring more overall goals and putting Summit into first place. The boys team won its whole tournament as well, so Summit lacrosse took both first place trophies home with them, dominating the tournament.”***We’re out, gathering more poetic fodder for our sentimental tendencies.
