It’s been rough sledding since my Christmas in Connecticut, when I actually witnessed (on TV) the Bulls win a game. You may remember, they beat the Cavs on December 23.
With the latest losing streak at six, this so-called Bulls fan will admit – she’s done anything but watch the Bulls, aka – the UnwatchaBulls.
Here’s my top 5 things to do instead of watching the Bulls.
1.) READ A BOOK. I’m not sure how it happened, but evidently, I’m in a book club. Our friend must have realized the only way we’d read the 450+-page tome is if she bought it for us herself, which she did, wrapped up in a holiday bow and everything. So far, I’m halfway through “Nine Perfect Strangers” by Liane Moriarty.
2.) PLAN YOUR NEXT VACATION: My annual Miami getaway with two Kellies is taking shape for early April. I got my flight, and next need to book my stay at a new Marriott.
3.) CHANGE SOME BATTERIES: I hate changing batteries, but better to be safe than sorry with the smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. With the high ceilings in my shoe box palace, I have to get up on a ladder, and it’s a major production. But it’s better than watching the Bulls.
4.) ORGANIZE CABINETS AND DRAWERS: Mission accomplished with the one containing the cereal, pasta, sauces and snacks. The one with the Tupperware is too frightening. Since I needed to find batteries to accomplish #3 above, I was forced to organize the odds and ends drawer anyway. And bonus – found a lot of flashlights I didn’t know I had.
5.) WATCH ANOTHER SPORT: While my football knowledge is far from impressive, I jumped on the Bears bandwagon once it got interesting. Sadly, last Sunday the Bears managed to lose to the Eagles, while the Bulls simultaneously lost to the Nets. At least I got to show off the jersey Kevbro bought for me back when Greg Olsen was playing for the Monsters of the Midway.
Tonight the Bulls continue their west coast trip with a 9 p.m. CST game against the Jazz. Thankfully, I’ll be enjoying live music by The Vulgar Boatmen at Schubas. However, we still want to:
Beat the Jazz.
