Take Me Out To The Ballgame...And Now I Want To Go Home
This Friday, we planned the ultimate Chicago "turn the wrong way day": Wrigley Field, Cubs vs. Cardinals. As life long Cubs fans, Margret and I were excited to baptise the girls into the self-loathing world of Cubs-fandom.
Everyone was really excited, but it only took about 3 pitches (2 of which went for Cardinal hits) for it to wear off. After we counted flags, watched the sea gulls dive for food, we had almost run out of things to do until Ava noticed a girl walking up and down another aisle selling cotton candy. Now there was something to do.
Seeing she was distracted, I asked her if she was going to watch the game. Her response:
"If I'm going to watch anything, I'm going to watch for the Cotton Candy girl."
As expected, the Cubs lost, thereby completing the Wrigley Field experience.
