Hey you Guys out there in “Never , Never Land? You know it’s that time of year. Hope you are enjoying the cool fall weather! That means there are a lot of leaves out there for you to play with. That reminds me of when I was young. We raked leaves and jumped in the great big piles. It’s sad that we get too old to do things anymore. It would look kinda strange if a grown woman like me was jumping into great big piles of leaves. What on earth would the fishermen think when they go by? But now I have one thing that I like better. I believe that you probably already know but just in case I will tell you anyway. We now have football all day Sunday and if that is not enough; we have Monday Night football and of course then comes Thursday night. By this time most people would be worn out with football but not old TG. I know you probably thought what happened to this “fishing fool” I use to read about.
The Hubby knows he better not expect any fabulous meals on game night and he better not get between me and the television either. You see he usually watches REALLY EXCITING programs like National Geographic! You know animals, birds and snakes.
I hate to tell you this but last Thursday night the Saints beat the Falcons! Yep, you got that right, the Saints are not my team. I was soooooo excited, could not wait for the game to start. Watched ESPN all day; finally the Hubby told me a woman my age should be knitting, reading one of those LOVE novels or better still cooking him something good and fattening to eat! I don’t have to tell you what happened next. Anyway, the Saints won, I stomped around all night shouting at the coach, the quarterback and all of the sudden when the game was over the Hubby just laughed and laughed. I am sure everybody on the lake heard me screaming. Also, I have a “TV watching Buddy”; I watch the game for him. The process goes like this. I watch the game at home and when each team scores, then I text message him so he can keep up with the game at work. He told me after the game he thought I was going to have a heart attack before the game was over.
After I calmed myself down a little, it was time for the Hubby to start laughing at me again. I just wanted to hit him. Well, I told him it’s not funny; everybody said the Saints would lose but the Hubby relied…..I knew they wouldn’t because they are MY TEAM! That’s when I told him in my LOUD voice, you let me have such a fit and all the time you were pulling for the other team. You are so bad. And then he asked me “so what are you?” I had to admit that I was a SORE LOSER! So today I am going to be better, not get upset over a crazy football game. It’s gonna be hard but I will keep you posted. We’ve got almost twelve more weeks of games and Thanksgiving and Christmas falls right in between games. Then the really big one, SUPER BOWL. I will just die if the Saints win it. The Hubby will not be able to contain himself and I will be such a sore loser by then; I might be dangerous as far as he is concerned.
I know I am supposed to be enjoying the moment but I have to admit, I did not enjoy not one moment of that game! So till next time, don’t do as I do; do as I say, ENJOY LIFE. Bye now!
