Athens bound

The 2008 football season is here. With UGA ranked #1 in the nation, it's no surprise that we were off to Athens early Saturday morning. By early I mean we got up at 6am and arrived in Athens around 9:30. That's a lot of early morning moving around for the weekend.

Dennis thinks that girls look sexy when they wear baseball hats. And, since I have one, two...wait... just one hat and it happens to be a UGA hat, I figured that this was as good of a time as any to get all sexy.

I put the hat on and wasn't too impressed. "I look like a boy in a hat. Dennis, my hair is too short to wear a hat because it makes me look like a boy!"

"Honey, your boobs give it away that you are a girl."

Thanks, I guess. I mean, that's a good thing, right?

Once at the tailgate spot, Tent City, I wasn't sure if I should wear my sunglasses or not. I didn't think anyone was looking, so I snapped a few photos of myself to see if I looked better with or without the glasses. Of course, someone is always looking and Dennis laughed at me when he realized what I was doing.

On the way to the game we passed a small town called Bethlehem. I know that Dennis and I need to be better about going to church and I thought that this was a good opportunity to make up for some lost time. "Dennis, let's sing some church songs."

"Sing? Church songs?"

"Yes, there's one that I loved singing when I was in Sunday School. It spelled something out and I cannot quite remember it. Oh, do you know all the books of the Bible? I know a song about that." Dennis recited much of the First Testament and when he paused, I cleared my throat and belted into song, "Matthew, Mark and Luke and John...1st and 2nd Corinthians...Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1st & 2nd Thesaollonians..." I stopped because I couldn't remember the next part of the song.

"What comes next?" he asked.

"I'm not sure. It'll come to me in a minute. Wait, I remember now...it's Fallopian." No - wait. For some reason, that doesn't sound quite right.

We definitely need to be better about going to church.

I believe the song that spelled out something was the "B-I-B-L-E, yes that's the book for me" song. At least that's what we sang in Baptist Sunday school. We also had creepy puppet shows. Did you have creepy puppet shows?

Great to see you guys on Saturday!

Are you talking about the puppet shows during the service? I never saw anything like it until I went with Dennis a few years ago to a Baptist church. I think they were actually getting ready to baptize someone but I looked over at Dennis and said OMG. AND I HAVE BEEN MISSING THIS MY WHOLE LIFE? A CHURCH WITH PUPPET SHOWS?

Never had puppet shows in church but I am dying to know, did you or did you NOT where the glasses?

I think you have been taking too many fertility pills if you are singing "Fallopian".

Miss ya!

I wore the glasses! I know you were lying awake wondering when I would tell you! :)

I have estrogen going into about every ophus possible so you are probably right!

Are you trying to tell me that Dennis actually paid attention in Church? He always gave us so much grief about going when he was little, just to get him there he often went in cowboy boots and shorts, I had to put a stop to the toy gun he always tried to smuggle in.
