Scott is really getting on my nerves.
But, then, so are the Cubs.
I never watched the game. I couldn’t bear to do it. I did check the score on the Chicago Tribune website, and had it on the radio when I ran some errands. All throughout the day, I received text messages from Mr. O-Rama, the faceless wonder of Phoenix. And as the game went on, each message got snarkier and snarkier.
And my responses got more and more pointed…
Here’s the sequence of events:
10/6/07 at 5:48 PM: Ed’s bf Todd is flying thru Chicago right now. Should he stop by to pick you & your cheerleading outfit up?
My response: Bite me!
10/6/07 at 8:22 PM: What flight can I expect you on?
My response: None– I was driving to the grocery store at the time.
10/6/07 at 8:32 PM: Is that the fat lady singing?
My response: Are you calling me fat?
10/6/07 at 8:43 PM: Not you sweetie, but how does that cheerleading uniform fit?
My response: I am NOT wearing a cheerleading uniform.. I don’t even have one!
10/6/07 at 8:46 PM: That’s OK, we’ll get you one, and I do believe it [was] in writing where you agreed.
My response: Sigh.. Yes. Howard is a dead man. 🙂
And finally, this lovely bit of advice from the lover of the Snakes himself, on his current post:
P.S. I hope my tough love is teaching you something: You can cheer for the Cubs, but don’t ever expect them to win. They’ll break your heart every time.
Yes, Scott, thank you so much for your concern and your “tough love” as you put it. I am a Cubs fan, therefore I am subjecting myself to instant and immediate heartbreak and sorrow. Well you know what? That’s what’s different about a loyal fan vs. a fair-weather fan. A loyal fan sticks with their team through thick and thin, right and wrong, win or lose. A fair-weather fan bails as soon as he (or she) sees that all hope is lost.
Sure, I didn’t watch the game because I knew it wasn’t going to go well. That doesn’t mean I didn’t care. That doesn’t mean I still didn’t support my team, and it sure as hell doesn’t mean I won’t support them next year. I will. And I expect them to win– one of these days.
In the meantime, I’ll be wiping my tears with my crying towel and drowning my sorrows with spirits.
And of course, I’ll end all the wailing with the old phrase: “Wait ’til next year!”
P.S. – Good luck against the Colorado Rockies. Bwahahahahahahahaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
