Nuff Said

I am just about to head out the door to court. I know I will be deluged by people asking me who I'm pulling for in the big game, tonight.

I'm ready for them.

I have a thought for you...nothing to do with Sooners..what ever the heck a sooner is?? ;-)

As I was driving today....You need to write a book. 'How to do Divorce'. It needs to be REQUIRED reading for all high schoolers (maybe middle school...the rate things are going). then the kids need to be told...if you can't 'do' divorce the 'right' way, then don't get married and don't have kids!!! Or maybe...not how to do divorce...but how to do 'co parenting'. Whatever. You can decide the title. ;-)

You will be famous, on all the talk shows...it will be a smash hit and an idea that is long over due.

if you could just mention in the acknowledgements that I planted the seed of an idea...I would appreciate it much! ;-)

Have a good day!

I'm glad you clarified that, Penny. The suspense was killing me, LOL.

Karol, you are sweet.

A Sooner (aside from being the Oklahoma University mascot) is, essentially, a cheater. Sad but true.

When they did the land runs in Oklahoma (opening up the Indian Territory to American citizens) the citizens were allowed to run out and stake their claim at a certain time. "Sooners" snuck over the line ahead of time and were able to grab some prime pieces of real estate. Honestly, I can't imagine why anyone ever thought that was a good idea for a mascot but there is no changing it, now.

I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you. I'm a GATOR through and through....in fact, I bleed Orange and Blue. Of course, being a native Floridan and living near the Gator Nation might have something to do with that. But, I'm tolerant of other allegiances.


Penny said...

Oh Pati, That is a shame we are on different sides of the fence. Please remind me to not gloat when the dust settles. I will try to be gentle. :)

Ohhh, so a sooner is basically and early bird! Okay...so many a cheat...but the mascot could have been a bird with a worm in it's mouth...get it...the early bird gets the worm?! I'm sure your sooner mascot is much more 'macho' than my bird with a worm!

Well, tonight I will have to root for the Boomer Sooners since they represent the Big 12. However, my blood runs burnt orange! It is going to be hard not to shout "Hook'em".


Penny said...

Go ahead and yell Hook 'em Horns. We'll know what you mean.
