Olympics and world cup games seem to be the divider in this family. The Rooster really does think that I care who wins and so as not to break his bleeding heart, I pretend to be incredibly passionate about all games American v England.
So last night with every TV in our house on for surround sound effect, both teams scored and drew. Not a pretty out come. Our dinner guests were very good not to talk too much football, thinking that I might be upset by it all.
I couldn't have cared less really. I just wanted to bring out the pudding!
This morning I was just about to take down the American flag from the front porch and Rooster was horrified, so I pretended that I was just moving it over. I said that the mail man might find it in the way in the morning while trying to get to the mail box. I did ask him why I shouldn't take it down,( just curios), and he said that America was still in the running! Of course they were, what was I thinking.
I must have had too much wine last night.
On a completely different note, we went to visit and pick out our new puppy yesterday morning.
Two weeks old and already she can 'sleep' on command. How smart is that!
