Sorry for the delay in posting. What a super bowl!
I had heard that the sun was much stronger closer to the equator in winter – so I planned on doing some tanning at a local place before catching the flight to Miami. Well, I overslept in the tanning bed…I had set my alarm for 2 hours thinking that should give me a nice color all the way through like a pot roast, but I guess I should have added some water or something though – because I came out three hours later a bit overdone!?
I haven’t really been able to do any sitting down since then – as the bottoms of my feet are about the only part of me that isn’t hot to the touch. I was unable to complete my flight, because some stewardess(!?) decided that I had to be sitting in a particular seat for nearly the whole flight! I explained to her that I couldn’t sit, and that I would just stand there whittling (my new favorite hobby) until we got to Miami – but she wouldn’t have it, and made the plane go back to the gate and made me get off.
I spent most of yesterday in a conference room with some very disagreeable Boston police and air traffic safety officers. They’ve kept my favorite whittling knife and all of the wooden swordfish that I had planned on giving out as souvenirs in Miami as "evidence". Whatever that means?!
I heard it was a great game. Crisply played, and decided at the last possible moment. Prince performed at halftime, and treated the audience to some of his signature moves, with racy outfits and costume changes.
I’ll see you next time…at the Super Bowl!
