Another Little Secret

If you were to see me in any of my professional capacities, your impression would be fairly consistent.  If you saw me in most social situations or with my kids (most of the time), it would remain consistent. 
There is this one thing though…Iowa State basketball.  I guess you might not be surprised if you were a trainer with me in high school.  I didn’t like athletic events in college because I hated being so far from the sidelines.  I even thought about this as a career path, but I heard I would have to work on cadavers in kinesiology, so that was a no go for sure.
When the kids were younger I didn’t even try to watch.  I knew I would get interrupted and that would be frustrating.  This season?  The time has come.  They know there is no fooling around when mama is watching basketball.  The first game freaked them out I think (ok, I know it did).  I might have yelled.  I was for sure clapping.  Pacing.  Lots of talking to the TV.  It is ridiculous…and I love it.  Invite me to watch the game and I will smile and poliely decline.  This is a solitary activity.  You may see my nonsense if you brush your teeth under the same roof.  Well shoot, now that I think about that…I hope the neighbors can’t hear me.  If they did they would never believe it was me.  They would think it was my kids. 
Ha ha
BTW…triple overtime win breaking a 25 year losing streak at OSU.  No wonder I can’t sleep!
