Couldn't stop smiling if I tried...
How's this for no grey, and nothing but hope? Michigan - Ohio State game 1995
In case you live on Mars, it's Ohio State week around here and that means that I'm a combination wreck and bustling ball of inexhaustible energy...and, of course, I can't stop smiling, regardless of the year's trials and tribulations. It's partly this week that has me wondering how I could ever live anywhere else...any further than an hour's drive to Michigan Stadium.
I'm giddy. Tonight I'm kinda sorta giggly. I don't know why exactly. I mean, it's more than just Saturday's football game. Maybe because the U.S. Thanksgiving is this week, and ever since I was young that was something worth flipping for...or maybe it's because the Tigers have reportedly signed Victor Martinez...or it could be that Parenthood is on tonight and that show always makes me feel good...and my family has a pre-Christmas gathering this weekend up north, which is exciting beyond normal levels of excitement. Of course, it could be the Grateful Dead tunes drifting from my speakers, or it could be the kiss festival that I had with Zoey tonight before bed...it may be the Chritmas presents that are starting to trickle in via my two year old tradition of online shopping. All things considered, I think it might be the fact that my visit to the chiropractor after work has me headache free for the first time in weeks, but I wouldn't bet against the Scarlet Begonias and Jerry Garcia.
I'd also venture to say that hearing Zoey try to tackle the word, magnificent tonight might have pushed me over the edge.
