The Detroit Lions Rule!

We're "watching" the game. The Butcher is watching and about dying of outrage over the officiating, but seems resigned to watching his favorite team lose. I'm working on the current afghan. I'm a little concerned that I may be remembering the recipient of said afghan as being a little broader in the shoulders than humanly possible, as it seems very wide. But, and here's the happy part, Mom is snoring, Dad is snoring, and the dog is snoring. So, yes, they got here this morning at 9 and the men proceeded to camp out on the couch and bark orders into the kitchen at my mom. I tried to insist that the Butcher cook the turkey, but Mom wouldn't hear of it. Unfortunately, Mom seemed content to leave all of the plastic parts in the turkey and so I did have to step in to make sure we were going to have an edible bird. My dad was outraged that we hadn't already started the turkey. He thought we were going to eat at noon. I asked him if he'd ever met the recalcitrant brother, because that dude never gets anywhere in a timely manner. I predict he'll be here by two and we'll eat at four. I only wish the Lions were a good enough team to tie Atlanta and send this game into overtime. The longer we can keep everyone asleep, the happier I'll be.

No, your memory is correct.

I'm very impressed what a little domestic goddess you've become.

Are you wearing a June Cleaver apron?

You'll make somebody a dandy lil' missus some day. I can just picture you bringing him another martini as he gives you a playful smack on the ass.

This game is so boring and lopsided that everyone will be back asleep by the middle of the 4th quarter.

Shoot, I've always been the domestic goddess of mess-making. I'll gladly cook and mix drinks and pull apart tubs and rewire fixtures and walk the dog and all that shit if someone else will clean up after me.

That'd be great.

At least Denver and Dallas is more interesting.

I'm getting the impression that cleaning up after you IS the hard part.

That, or being your therapist.

I guess it's really the same thing.

And yet, it's funny because it's true.
