Yesterday I painted with two ladies that I had never painted with before. Both were very fun and very talented, but both were fairly new to watercolor. I spent most of my time showing them some different color combinations and techniques. I did start a painting from a picture taken in San Antonio. If it works out, I will post it later. I don’t really know these ladies very well, and we spent a lot of time getting to know each other. At one point, one lady said she did not watch football at all and knew nothing about it. The other lady agreed. Then the first one said that everyone was talking about some "big game" coming up and she could care less. The second lady agreed.
Now there are a few subjects in this world that could care less about – one is taxes and the other is insurance (futures market takes a lot of concentration). I do feel that it is important to know a little something about many subjects. I read Buck’s hockey posts even when it makes my eyes cross, because I should know who is the best hockey team. You never know when you might get a chance to be on Jeopardy or get into a serious game of Trivial Pursuit. Without getting out my hammer, I had to explain to these ladies that this was an important game and there is a reason everyone is talking about it. Even if you are not a football fan, this should be one great game. I’m not a football nut, but I am a good Tex/Mex./Okie that does keep tabs on what is going on in the football world. If I took a football quiz, I may not score 100%, but I could do pretty darn good. I do enjoy attending football games, but I’m not crazy about watching them on TV unless I have a good book or some crocheting to do. But, if the game is really good, or really important, I am more likely to pay attention. Tonight’s game will be watched, and unless one teams runs off with the scoreboard, I will probably watch the whole dang game.
Not being a big OU fan, I have not decided whom to cheer for. I was thinking about cheering for the Gators, just because OU is almost as arrogant at UT, but I am an Okie now. It would be nice if OU won. Yet, I do have lots of respect for the Gators. Jesse is going over to a friend’s house to watch the game. Around here, this game is more important than the Super Bowl. Maybe I will cheer for both teams…maybe I will choose OU.
