Once upon a time a couple of friends (two friends to be exact) were watching the Cubs play in Game 4 of the NLDS, playing the San Francisco Giants and were texting throughout the game. This after staying up till 1:45AM the previous evening (or early that morning). Because these two gals are their own biggest fans and feel they are funnier than anyone else they thought it would be fun to transcribe these texts. This also shows my ability to describe a game to someone who is not watching..and you can see, I’m sure the other person felt like she was AT the game. #ProbablyNot #FunnyAnyway #NotMyFirstRodeo #NotAllAboutBaseball
These are those texts.
S – Stephanie
T – Terry
7:30PM – Tuesday, October 11, 2016

T – We will do it tonight
S – Ya baby
*** Cubs 3 up 3 down. First inning.

T – A little “cadillacing”.

T – Get ready… You will be binge-watching Modern Family through these next two series. 🙂
S – F that stupid goat.
And that, my Blog-Followers, is how this blog became a blog. Because we really are that funny. Or at least we both thought so as we both re-read our texts several times the following day and texted back and forth marveling at how “funny” we truly are. 🙂 Sometimes it’s necessary to think about things that are not baseball. #Books #Pedicures

SONG OF THE DAY: I’M NOT RUNNING ANYMORE, JOHN MELLENCAMP
Well I look in the mirror – what the hell happened to me?
Whatever I had has gone away
I’m not the young kid that I used to be
So I push the hair back out of my face
That’s O.K., I knew this would happen
But I was hopin’ not today
Hey Baby, I’m not running anymore
But I’m on my way
I’m on my way
I’m on my way
I’m on my way
And I’m not running anymore
Pretty. Damn. Fun.
Let’s Go Cubs! #FlyTheW #FThatGoat.
Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Carolyn! One of my life-long friends!
