Hubby mentioned in passing to me a week or two ago that he'd like to have a SuperBowl party.
Sounds good to me - have a few guys over to drink beer and watch the "Big Game," while I could go to a movie, read a book, blog, whatever. I can roll with that.
Hmmm. Apparently that wasn't his plan.
Next thing I know, Hubby has plastered his invitation on FaceBook for all the world to see. He has just invited everyone we know over. Which would include wives - which means I would have to play hostess. On a Sunday night. Until late. Because the "powers-that-be" at the NFL seem to think that late on Sunday night is the perfect time to have the "Big Game." Knowing that lots of folks will be having parties. Knowing that most of those same people have to get up and go to work in the morning! Personally, I think the "powers-that-be" are idiots. Just my opinion. But I digress.
Now normally I don't mind being the hostess with the mostest. But let me let you in on a little secret.
I don't like football. Especially watching it on television.
Yes, I am uber-football mom when Man-Child is playing - but that's because I have a vested interest in the game and I'm actually there and can get caught up in the excitement.
But for the most part? Leave me out of it. I have far better things to do than watch grown men run around on the field - like cleaning the oven, digging a ditch, or cleaning a sewer line. ANYTHING is better to me than watching a game on t.v.
Luckily (is it wrong for me to think that?) no one has responded, at least via FaceBook yet. I'm thinking it's because Hubby waited to late to do the invite. (Hasn't he learned anything from all these years being married to me? You have to send out invites at least two weeks in advance! Basic social etiquette - duh!). So hopefully, everyone else already has plans. Yes, bad hostess with the mostest, for not wanting this party to go off.
But - between you and me - I will hold that title proudly if this so-called party doesn't materialize. Yes, I'll put on the sad face for Hubby but inside? I'll be doing my little happy dance.
