Unconscious Mutterings – Week 764 (The Football Edition…Sort Of!)

Play along here.

Outbreak: apathy

Outerwear: LL Bean

Game: football

Lift: up

Kneel: protest

Recede: tension

Ship: dingy

Winter: cold

Peel: shrimp

You’d think that since I had swine flu in 2009 and nearly ended up in the hospital, I’d get a flu shot every year. Guess again.

The only coat I have that gets me through our brutal winters is my down-filled L.L. Bean “suit of armor” as I call it – I only wear it if it’s going to be 20 degrees or colder because it works so well I can’t wear it if it’s going to be too warm.

Please keep politics out of my football games, thank you!

One of my favorite ways to uplift someone is to write them a letter.

When kneeling during the anthem solves all our nation’s problems, I’ll join in. Until then, I prefer not to virtue signal.

My favorite ways to relax include yoga, aromatherapy , writing, cross stitch and taking walks with my camera.

My favorite coffee spice flavor is cinnamon hazelnut.

When my ship comes in, I’m sure it will be a dinghy with a hole in it.

I hate it when it’s cold enough that you freeze your nostrils shut simply by breathing in.

I think my love of shellfish came from when my grandmother would boil shrimp in the summer time.

  1. I was really pulling for you last week vs The Ugly Orange. May Ohio bring about V # 1. My Bulldogs (granddaughter a senior there) didn’t fare well against their Bull Dogs last week. Love fall, Love Football and having spent six years in the USMC, I Stand. No place for politics on game day. I’m a Southern New Hampshire grad where we had no Saturday football. Your Minutemen must travel to Starkville in November. Should you go, wear ear protection for the cow bells will ring.

    • Bill worked for University of Memphis for five years and he says the cowbell will haunt your nightmares😀I have heard rumors that our marching band isn’t going to play the anthem tomorrow. I hope those rumors are wrong but it remains to be seen. I am working on a flag cross stitch sampler and the more people trash America, the faster my fingers fly. I don’t understand what is happening to our country and it saddens me to think of where we are headed. Thanks for your support and thank you for your service!

  2. Your band is awesome! Dropped NFL package yesterday after 11 years. Putting together a Punt – Pass & Kick blog, hope to have it together in a few days. Miss New England the most this time of year. Itching for Gino and UConn woman’s BB. Have a great weekend.
