Did you hear it? All the way at your house?
The wailing. The howling. The sobbing.
Oh, the dramatic near-hyperventilation of a totally wrung-out, exhausted and extremely disappointed 7-year old at the end of the Superbowl.
Not only did his Packers lose, but now the Patriots have let him down as well.
What could be worse?
Not even the glorious big snowflakes that started to fall outside our window during the game, blanketing the whole world with another beautiful layer of snow, could distract him.
But, wow, what a change in his interest level and understanding of the game since last year; remember this post? It’s one of my favorites. No, this year he was riveted to the entire game and was extremely psyched to be watching Real Commercials, even cheering for each one in the first quarter.
(And if you are one of those people who has truly been hanging out with me here in Blogland for the past year, thank you. There’s surely a special place in heaven for you.)
