Tonight Farmer H and Mrs. Hillbilly Mom will be screaming along with 85,000 fans (probably more) as the Oklahoma Sooners face off against the Ohio State Buckeyes. We might be sorely disappointed by game's end, because the Sooners fell from grace (and a #3 ranking the first game of the season, when the Houston Cougars beat them by 10. Let the record show that it was more accurately the Sooners who beat themselves. Anyhoo...they are now ranked #14, and the Buckeyes have landed the #3 slot. Still, it should be an exciting game. Farmer H is even venturing down the steps (for a reason other than to flaunt his assets in tighty-whities on the way to the pool) to watch the game with Mrs. HM on the basement big-screen.
Yep. A social event unrivaled since the last Super Bowl is about to unfold at the Mansion. Mrs. HM is pulling out all the stops. Okay. Not all of them, but most. Well, a few. Alright, a couple. We are having DiGiorno, people! DiGiorno Rising Crust. Supreme! Farmer H would have preferred the Meat Trio, but he didn't do the shopping all by his lonesome at The Devil's Playground, now did he? So he will have the peppers picked off, per his preference, and the pepperoni of Mrs. HM added to his side. Don't you worry about Mrs. Hillbilly Mom. She gets the extra peppers!
Also, Farmer H will have a half-time snack of On the Border Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips, accompanied by some queso sauce and salsa (mixed together), Mrs. HM drawing the line at making her Velveeta cheese dip which is reserved for the Super Bowl.
Mrs. HM will have an individual pack of Smartfood Mix variety pack popcorn (Kettle Corn), and 1/3 box of Sno-Caps for her snack. She has been making wise choices, you know. But she's NOT scrimping on the pizza! It has been budgeted into her daily meal plan.
As the leader of Lower Basementia informed a team of students playing at a trivia match a couple years ago: "This is what you have to look forward to when you get old."
