(Don is outside working on a fencing project.)
Me: "When is Superbowl Sunday? Is it today?"
Older Daughter (types a question into her computer): "Yes, it's today. And the players are..."
Me: "Oh, I don't care about that."
True story: Back in 1989 when Don and I were dating, he lived around the corner from me in a college town where bicycles were more common than cars. One day I hopped on my bike and rode around the corner to see him. I found him on his front lawn, his bicycle upended in front of him, doing some repairs on it.
"Why aren't you in watching the game?" I asked. "Today is Superbowl Sunday."
"Well..." He looked up from his bike. "I'm not really that into football."
"Hmmmmm," I distinctly remember thinking. "This is someone I could get serious about."
The rest is history.
