    I am, gawd help me. My husband dragged me to a gay bar, because they're having a complimentary buffet at halftime. icon_rolleyes.gif

    So I'm sitting here at the bar on my iPad, bored out my mind and half deaf from the noise. A gay bar, and not a single one of their dozen-some screens is playing the Puppy Bowl! What's wrong with these queens?

    And I can't find a live stream of the Puppy Bowl online. But after 30 minutes I managed to wrangle 3 seats together at the bar, for us and a friend we ran across here. So I can sit & surf, if not in peace with all this shouting.

    And after I dropped him off I had circled around until I snagged a curb sparking spot directly outside the front door, and can see the car through the glass not 25 feet from where I'm sitting, and standing next to it is the bar security guy checking IDs on the sidewalk. Easing any fears we have about vandalism & break-in at night. As I said to hubby, can I vulture or can I vulture? icon_biggrin.gif

    YourName2000 saidNo, not watching it. I am watching all the studs in the bar next to me though...and it's making me fucking horny!!!! icon_twisted.gif

    If I'd been smart, I would have told all the Bronco's fans "I'm so confident Seattle will win, I'll suck your dick if they don't. And then said the reverse to all the Seahawks fans.

    Then either way, I'd win. icon_cool.gif

    Well, any night out with my husband is always a win, in some sense.

    True - this afternoon when he told me we were going he asked me who the teams were. I didn't know either! So I went online to find out.

    Learning one was Seattle, where I lived 5 years, versus Denver, where I haven't, I guess my choice is the Seahawks. I think they're ahead right now, based on the shouting here, but I haven't a clue.

    I just asked my husband who was ahead, and he had no idea, either. I suppose I should feel guilty for having front-row seats when others who might actually care don't.

    I am... and it's sucking big time! So embarrased for the Broncos! Bring on Bruno Mars already.icon_rolleyes.gif
    Surely, his performance will be better than Mannings!
    Good thing I didn't bet blowjobs on my team or I'd be needing me a lot of Chapstick about right now!

    Oh, great! Someone just came up to me who's having a big charity event for Chinese New Years, of all things. In Fort Lauderdale? I think we had actually gotten them some liquor baskets a few weeks back for their silent auction, it's a fundraiser.

    I wasn't planning on attending, but I guess we are now, 2 tickets for hubby & me. Beware of husbands who come up to you and ask "Do you have your checkbook with you?" Learn to lie! icon_razz.gif

    Well now a guy next to me, evidently a Denver fan, is trying to get me to agree that the game is fixed. Because the score in the Second Half is 29-0, Seattle.

    Apparently Denver was supposed to win this? I didn't even know what teams were playing until about 4 hours ago. And where the fuck is the Puppy Bowl on the Internet? icon_mad.gif

    The bar is starting to thin out, I guess a lot of crestfallen Denver fans (plus the buffet has been removed). Another Seattle touchdown, at 36-0 it's becoming an embarrassment. And the guy next to me is getting more agitated in his claims the game is fixed.

    Just left Trudy's, took most of my anger out on my truck and missed the only fraking score; convinced Manning has been paid off.

    43 to 8. All buffalo wings in Seattle are renamed as Hawks wings.

    That's among the things my bar companion was yelling. He finally left.

    And actually not very good football for many fans, who prefer a close game with some tension. Not a rout.

    And it's over, 43-8. And NOW my devious husband tells me he was in some game pool, and may have won us some money. icon_eek.gif

    Mine, just text asking how much we lost.
    Can't tell you how much I needed the "we" just now--that and the puppy commercial.

    Not sure what you mean. But I never bet on sports, even something so innocent as a football pool among friends. I was shocked to have my husband tell me that he had put money into a Superbowl pool, I've never known him to do that before.

    But I'll ask him more about it tomorrow. We had a fun evening, even if it was a stupid Superbowl, I'm not going to spoil a good time over something so unimportant.

    Because despite some of my apparent bitching here, the truth is almost everything is amusing to me on some level, even when it's annoying to me on another. I always try to squeeze something worthwhile out of whatever I find myself doing. Even the worst experience has some value as a good anecdote to tell afterwards. Hell, half the stories I tell are about my own stupid mishaps.

    And when an episode involves my husband, I'll never ruin his own good time at the moment on my account. I'll make it work for his sake, and endure anything with a smile if he's enjoying himself. And I know there are times when he does the same thing for me. icon_biggrin.gif
