What Happened Last Night

Last night we celebrated my dad's 70th birthday.  On the way to meet my parents at Olive Garden for dinner, we passed the car of a Steelers fan.  They had their window down, and were waving a Steelers flag, shouting, and beeping the horn.  Jim remarked, "If we lose this game, they're going to need to put Prozac in the Pittsburgh drinking water tomorrow".

This morning, when I woke Dylan up, we were talking.  
"We had fun with Mi-Mi and Bubba last night, didn't we?", I asked.
"Sure did!", he smiled.
"Too bad the Steelers lost the game".
His face crumpled, and he honestly looked like he was gonna cry. "They did?!  But, Bubba said they were gonna win!"
"Well, Dylan, sometimes you win, and sometimes you lose".
"Yea, that's just what happens".

So, there you go Pittsburghers.  Kids have a way of putting things in perspective, don't they?
But, it wouldn't hurt to drink lots of water today.

Did you go out to dinner during the game? If so, I can imagine you were the only people in the restaurant!

Sorry that your team lost...but happy mine did! Had to root for the Packers as the quarterback went to my son's high school and Chico is his hometown.

Love the Dylan stories.

Oh..wouldn't be good to say "Thanks a lot Pittsburgh for letting down all of Pennsylvania," then? :-)

What a smart, smart little boy! He sure knows how to put it all into perspective, doesn't he?!
