Buy Me Some Peanuts and Crack...er Jacks

Exact reenactment of Husband leaving for work this morning...
Morning Readers,

     The season is upon us, once again. Oh, not badger hunting season; we're still a month out, but I'll set my Google calender. No, as the grass sprouts and birds come out of hibernation..yes, hibernation, ...they drag along with them baseball season. If you're wondering, that requires at least three-hundred owls and one husky Finch. I haven't talked about it since last year because I'd blocked it out. Nevertheless, Husband, in usual Husband fashion, has started the countdown. Nine out of the last ten of our interactions have gone something like...

"Hey sweetie, how's it going?"

"Who are you again?

"Your wife."

"Oh, you're not wearing a jersey, so I didn't recognize you. But, then I saw you carrying my son, so I thought, "Her...right". Janice is it?"

"Paige. Remember? July, 2009..I wore white."

"Yep. Yep. Got it now."

"Well...Paige, was it?"

"Right on the money"

 Have I told you baseball season's right around the corner?"

I consider. "Wasn't that what I was supposed to stitch into your underwear?"

"Listen, lady, I don't think you understand that this is our year."

"We're finally replacing the carpet? Good, because, if you connect all the spots where the kids and the dog threw up, it looks like a treasure map."

*Husband frowns deep frowns* "No, this is it, the year we're going to redeem ourselves. That, and the All Star game is here  in June. The team is going to be amazing, and I think you and those people that are always following you around-"

"The kids?"

"Right, the kids. You guys are all going to head out to the stadium and witness something great. That, and I've noticed when you feed them, they're quiet. We'll buy them a malt or something."

"I'm sure they'd enjoy that. Have you been sitting in your jersey, all night?"

"Uh huh."

"You can't wear it to bed."

"I know."

"Do you?"

So, how do you guys feel about baseball? Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan....but this year may be in a league of its own..*ba dum tsh*

Until Next Time, Readers!
