Writing Wrongs

Overheard before the Super bowl, with heartfelt apologies to Mick Jagger:

“Mommy, who’s that guy on TV?”

“That’s Mick Jagger.”

“Who’s he?”

“He’s the lead singer of the Rolling Stones.”

“What’s that?”

“A rock band.”

“He talks funny.”

“He’s British.”

“Oh. I guess that’s how old British people sound.”

It’s official. Andrew is bouncing off the walls and shouting already and it’s only the pre-game. He wants the Steelers to win. Bob is rooting for the Seahawks. Kyra and I? We’re going shopping. Ha! We’ll show them.

May the best team win--quietly.
