Not a Big Fan
I really don't love football, but I know it's bringing a lot of joy and distraction to many. When I spotted Michigan on TV today, I called my dad. He's a U of M fan and this would be a good distraction for him. "Their masks are very festive!" I told him.
U of M football ended up being the topic of our phone converstaion. Dad and I reminisced about going to games in Ann Arbor, when Dad taught there in the 1970's. I was 16 and we hadn't lived in Ann Arbor long, when Dad gave me his faculty tickets one day. He told me to invite a friend. I didn't really have good friends yet, but I invited a girl from my drama class. At the stadium, we were on the way to our seats, when I spotted my parents heading towards their fancy box seats. They had gotten better tickets, because they were entertaining Arthur Miller, who had come to UM to work on a play with Dad. My new friend didn't seem that excited when I pointed over to my parents and said I would introduce her to them. We made our way over and I watched the face of my new friend when I introduced her to Mr. Miller. If I would have invited a friend from another class, it might have been less fun. But this friend recognized the playwright and her jaw dropped when she shook his hand. Dad didn't recall that story, so it was extra fun to tell.
I guess football gave me a fun distraction today, after all.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
