Monday, May 29, 2017 – Memorial Day OKC TAMU WCWS and Sine Die, but Hold Your Bladders!
Today let us pause at 3:00 PM local time for a moment of silence for all who sacrificed for our freedom to pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You are not forgotten.
Thank you vets that my pursuit of happiness is headed toward Oklahoma City (OKC) to see the Fighting Texas Aggie (TAMU) softball team win the Women’s College World Series (WCWS). No, I am not going. There are certain advantages to attending. For example,
- being part of the excitement,
- participating in the Fan Fest activities,
- purchasing a T-shirt
- seeing your team win or
- supporting your team in a loss.
Of course there are advantages to staying home. For example, (in order they come to mind)
- beer with no waiting line,
- wine with no waiting line,
- instant replay,
- able to scream obscenities at umpires and coaches and not be expelled from your home,
- able to pause game
- a clean bathroom or at least you know who’s dirt it is
- wearing an Aggie T-shirt you found on the floor that morning,
- wearing the T-shirt you slept in,
- wearing the shorts you had on yesterday,
- not wearing foundation garments,
- not sitting on the front row behind home plate exposing my fish belly white legs and giving the camera a view I do not want to expose on national TV, especially not wearing foundation garments,
- no need for sunscreen,
- two equal opportunity, available to all who have the urge to go bathrooms. Note: My RP retirement document is of special interest in the guest bathroom, but best of all,
- Being a part of the 12th Man and watching the Aggies win the WCWS, able to dance throughout the house and sing War Hymn.
The WCSW begins in Oklahoma City on Thursday, June 1 on ESPN. FYI – These ain’t your church softball games. Watch some incredible athletes. Bet you haven’t seen girls throw like this before!
But wait, the lusty month of May is not yet over – especially for public schools. There are still more buses the public institution can be thrown under.
Today is Sine Die or the last day of the Texas Legislature.
But hold your bladders. We, Texans, still do not know where to go to the bathroom. So Dan, The Evangelical, is calling for a Special Legislative Session. Of course, he is blaming it on the Speaker of the House, Cajones Straus because Speaker Straus will not play with stupid legislation or those who support it. This of course is the Abbott and Castello Show of Texas. Could we just sine die both of you without assigning a day for a further meeting or hearing?
Am I the only one who finds irony in tax payers’ dollars funding a special legislative session regarding property taxes and where to potty places in public schools?
