Tuesday, January 3, 2017 – No More Football? But Here Comes the Silly Season!
I regret to inform you that there are only 60 minutes of college football left until next season. That means round ball. Geno A., please tell me you are not trying to grow facial hair. On old men like you, it just looks as though you forgot to shave. If you try that man bun thing, I will somehow find a way to like you even less.
Dear God, how many Hail Mary’s do I have to say when yesterday I said “Oh crap, when is Ash Wednesday and Lent?” Perhaps I should give up cussing. It is March 1 to go along with March Madness. Can I give up college football games? No? How about snow skiing? No, I do not ski, but I could learn and then give it up before Lent. Ok, if You say so, I will go think about it on the golf course before You send the Arctic Blast tomorrow.
Before I go to enjoy this beautiful day, here’s to the public servants doing the good for the state of Texas. The Silly Season begins and Texas Legislature is under the Dome once again. This could be the year we all learn where we can go pee in the proper potty and where else we can carry our handgun. Of course, if we are firing into the air during New Year’s Eve celebrations and a stray bullet just happens to hit a legislator, celebratory handgun discharge could go up in smoke.
Here’s to those of us retired public servants saying “Thank you ERS that I am not there!” Carry on, regardless!
