Spring Street

The basketball world is going to hell in a handbasket, and only Georgetown's overtime victory over UNC is saving me from renouncing the whole March Madness thing. (The women's side, if possible, is even worse. Duke out? NC State out? UNC in? Oy!)

But seriously, today we went to a tulip festival about a half hour away. Lovely. Just lovely. DQ took the second picture.

That town with the tulips, if I'm thinking of the right place, also has a lovely quilt show once a year.

Funny, I never really took you as one to follow sports... have you always, or is it a college thing?

No, I've always been a jock. It's my mom's influence. She's a jock... in fact, met my dad while playing at a golf tourney. Mom played for the boys' team in high school, because her school didn't have a girls' team.

Oooh, tell her about your mom's bowling team...don't forget to describe hte outfits!

No, seriously. Her bowling team, which is made of "ladies who lunch," won their league this year! My mom kicks ass.

I should add... kicks ass in pink and black bowling shirts with rhinestone accents.

So does that make your mother Frenchy or Rizzo?

OK, I guess that must have been my misconception that band members don't like sports... although the drummers and horn player dudes were always into professional sports, so it's not like I could have ever come to this conclusion through personal experience. Must just be me then... or I'm mixing up band people with theater people?

I'm so confused.

1) Quinn--OK, how is it that I as your most jock girlfriend (well, until Audrey started basketball) was unappreciated by your mom? That's like MH's mom not liking me despite the fact that I was the only dedicated Catholic girl around ... ;).

2) Jade--from my long-ago records, which I hope are correct: Happy Birthday a few days past :).

KR - Thanks! :) and moms didn't like you? How could they not like you? I always had the impression that you were a Very Responsible Young Lady.

Jade: I was! My high-school unpopularity with friends' parents was mysterious to us all ;). Theatre-John's mom was the only one who liked me, I think ... whatever THAT says about me!

MH's mom--I figured out years later--probably didn't trust me because of my hippie-style clothes. She was a hospital nurse in San Fransisco in the late 60s; "free" drugs and "free" sex and no actual source for necessaries like food and sanitation have some very serious consequences ... .

Quinn's mom, though, still a mystery. Perhaps my family was too weird.

They all like me OK as a grownup, though--ironically, because now I am way more of a social-norm threat than I was in high school!

Quinn: black and pink with rhinestones?? That SO ROCKS. Go Mom :)!
There--maybe the real reason she didn't like me is that she could sense that I can't bowl more than two games before my (weak) wrists give out ... ;).

Bwhahahahahahahaha! Theater-John's mom liked you? She has the capacity to like people? Sorry, but the image of her standing in my parent's family room telling them that I needed counseling is still burned into my brain. I would take her liking you as a high compliment though... that's like having some kind of superpower.

Quinn's mom is a mystery. She loved Aud, even though Aud was probably the one with the capacity to lead me the most astray. And she loved Riano. And goodness knows he wasn't a good influence!

Frankly, I could never decide whether it was actually a sign that I was fatally flawed ... it worried me, in a niggly little way, for years ;).

I like your superpower theory better :).
