The Day After….

Well, the Philadelphia Eagles won football’s Super Bowl.

The game was good, because my team won, naturally. What was difficult for me were the ups and downs of the game. I didn’t realize that I would feel the need for Valium. It made me feel for the genuine fans who followed every trade, every practice, every game for years only to be disappointed. I admit that I caught this season’s games and the anxiety hoping for a win is rougher as you get older.

Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on a job well done. I’m glad they finally will have a Super Bowl ring!

Neither Job nor….

…other commitments kept me from my appointed rounds today.

I made my way over to a Philadelphia Soft Pretzel Factory in the area, and picked up my order I phoned in yesterday.

I had ordered two dozen mini pretzels, bald, with salt on the side. My great nephews, Nathan and Nicholas will be rooting for the birds 🦅 on Sunday In Minnesota with their grandparents, so I figured Jim and I would try to help out.

As for me, I’m sure I’ll be ready for Sunday, as I am working kindergarten tomorrow and Friday.<<<<<

Pre-Game Jitters

Well, thanks to me still being somewhat under the weather, it looks like we’ll be watching the big game tomorrow here at home.

In a way, that’ll not be a bad thing, as it seems that being close to my bathroom and being able to lay down when needed is an excellent idea.The girls and I will hobble along as needed, so the excitement for the big 50th game will be enjoyed from the sidelines.

I have some classic nibbles on hand for the game, and unfortunately, I think hot tea or ginger ale might be my beverage du jour.I have a chip and dip mix that I bought from Penzey’s Spice house, which is now available on line, so some veggies, Ritz “everything” crackers’ and some chips might be on the board for that.

If you are going out to see the game and are driving, please designate a driver.I need to have every reader I can hold on to…seriously, you are worth more than a super bowl party.

By the way, I leave this post with only one wish.

“Chicken parm you taste so good.”

Pop Pop, Fizz fizz….

If you remember the Alka Seltzer jingle, you’ll know the ad was the Alka Seltzer cold formula.

I have never taken it, although right now, I can probably pass for a tuberculosis patient with this hack I have.I have had a river of hot soup and a ton of expectorant, and yet the hits just keep on coming.

So I will be taking a hot shower tonight and trying to get some of this congestion out of me so I can try to get back to normal. I haven’t been walking past 10,000 much because I just, quite frankly, feel like crap.I am to the point where I’d give all the money I have for 5 straight hours of sleep.After all I want to be up and together for the super bowl. I am sure that this is just a payback for the beautiful weather earlier this week.

Take care, everyone, and I will chat with you tomorrow.

Superbowl Chill

One of the things that I always enjoyed in the Superbowl were the commercials. I mean, being from Philadelphia, I only remember my Eagles going once to the Superbowl, so basically I had no true root for any other team.

I read and then watched the one commercial that was making the rounds through Social Media this year: it was the commercial about “pizza delivery”.

The premise is the woman on the phone with 911 is making that she is calling for pizza, when in reality she is calling #911 trying to get help: obviously she is in an abusive domestic situation.

Superbowl is a few years younger than I am,yet when I saw this commercial, I thought how many women lost their lives to domestic abuse during the span of the Superbowl existence.How many women are still in an abusive domestic situation.Would this commercial help someone? I hope so.In light on the NFL players going through certain domestic issues this past season,I assume this is their way of trying to put another band-aid on the situation that came to light.

Whatever the case is,I am hoping that this commercial will get some folks to escape their situation and be brave.Here’s hoping they live to leave in one piece!
