Guest blogger mom-on-the-edge: Yes, we have our differences, we have our fights. Hell, we've been on the verge of divorce for the past year. But, my husband is better than yours and he's better for this reason: He could give two hoots about watching the Super Bowl. When I asked him who was playing he said the "Pittsburgh Pirates."
So, while your husband was sucking back beers, burping the name of his favorite player and doing his own fancy version of a touchdown dance, my husband was doing the dishes. While all you sports widows out there took second place to the TV, we took our son for a nice, long walk.
Hail Super Bowl Sunday!
One hundred and forty million people watch, veritably all of our friends and neighbors, so my husband is stuck with me. It's a family day by default and I'll take it.
The only downside - I have no excuse to eat hot wings, nachos and pizza for dinner.
