Manny Ramirez. Hip Hip Hooray.

I was just falling asleep when the phone rang. It was Ethan. He sounded anxious and excited.

“Whitney, I have the best news to tell you!”

I am thinking along the lines of him getting $100,000 commission, winning a Benz, meeting Santa Claus etc.

“Oh really? What’s up?”

“Guess what. The Dodgers just got Manny Ramirez!!!”

“Oh wow. That’s great.”

“I know. All the tickets for his first game are sold out, but Mike got me one and we are going on Saturday.”

“Wow. I can’t believe it.”

“This is it Whitney. This is our year. We are so going to win the World Series!”

“That is great.”

Do you ever have these types of conversations with your honey? You are half asleep trying to sound excited.

Mine usually go like this:

"I got on the green in two."

"I played 18 and my back doesn't hurt."

"Tee time is 2:30."

"I hit a bucket of balls and didn't top the ball once!"

I've gotten some excited phone calls at work that sound eerily similar.

"GUESS WHAT??!?!?!?!? Tennessee just signed a home&home with [insert name of school I could care less about] for the 2020-2021 season. Isn't that *awesome*?"

Uh. I don't really care.
