Too dependent

This weekend was one of the best ones I've had in quite some time. Why, you may ask? Well, it was my first time going to a game at (LSU) Tiger Stadium. The reason for my caving in and going to a game was that they were playing my alma mater.

Even though they whupped us pretty good, it was still a great time, despite the overabundance of drunken frat boys and sorority girls and bumper to bumper to traffic. It was good to see friends from college, former professors, and of course students (past and present).

Speaking of which, it warmed my heart to know that both drum majors for my alma mater are former students of mine. Guess I did something right, huh?

So, anyway, in an effort to save gas and whatnot, I had the little woman drop me off on campus and I'd call her when the game was over to come get me. Little do I know after a couple of texts from some friends, my phone was dead.

Now, you may be asking yourself, why didn't I use a friend's phone. I would have more than happy to, except for my seat wasn't anywhere near anyone I knew. As a matter of fact, I was forced to sit on the LSU side. I guess I really shouldn't complain about that, though, since it was a free ticket.

Back to what I was saying, before my phone died, I texted her to say pick me up where she dropped me off. It was just a matter of how long that would be, especially since she doesn't watch football.

Ok, so, we all know how dependent we are on cell phones these days. I know some people who depend more on their cell phone than they do food and water! I remember when I was in college, there were pay phones, but these days, since almost everyone has a cell phone....well, they are nearly impossible to find. Lord knows I could have used one instead of having to sit around for a couple of hours.

Of course, there was some nice eye candy to be seen while i was

So, that was my weekend! Thanks for reading!

Nice. Checking out the gals while you wait for yours to pick your sorry butt up? Good for her making you wait.

On another note--that is great to see former students do well, isn't it? Good for you!
