Sunday Stealing-Happy Birthday

Today finds me linking up with the "thieves" at Sunday Stealing for some question and answer fun, as well as to wish our hostess, Bev, a very happy birthday!

Have you ever... 

1. Broken a bone?  No, I have not.

2. Broken a window?  Almost said no, but then I have this nice scar on my left wrist to remind me. When I was about 7 years old I ran my Dad’s leftover lunch into our house, put it in the fridge and ran to the front door. I missed the screen door handle and my hand smashed through the glass. My Dad flew to the back door, ran in the house and got clean towels from the linen closet. My Mom? She just walked through the broken glass, cuz that’s what Moms do. She put pressure on my wrist and kept talking to me cuz I was close to fainting. Instead, I slid down the wall I had been standing against and sat down. My Dad helped my Mom wrap my arm, picked me up and ran me to the station wagon while my Mom, walked through the broken glass again, cuz that’s what Moms do, locked the front door, and ran to the neighbor’s house to ask them to watch my sister, then ran to the station wagon, got in, and held the towels on my wrist and applied pressure. My Dad drove like an Indy driver to the hospital. I was some sight when we got to the ER. I was wearing a matching sailor shirt and shorts (think 1960’s), soaked in blood. I got a lot of stitches and my Dad had an excuse for a diy project. He removed the standard screen door and installed a Jalousie Door at both the front and back door. 
I say ‘cuz that’s what Moms do’, cuz they get er done. Mom needs to apply pressure to the wound, walk through broken glass and do it. Mom needs to go to the neighbor’s to have them watch her other daughter while we go to the ER, and Mom needs to get in the car and apply pressure to that wound. So the fastest way to do that is...walk through broken glass. Because any good Mom would walk through broken glass for their children. Not that my Dad wouldn’t. It was faster for him to run to the back door. Seriously! Cuz he handed those clean towels to my Mom before my behind even touched the floor. I don’t think I knew my Dad could run that fast, and I never saw him do it again.

3. Been on TV?  Not that I know of. I’m sure I could have been in a crowd shot at a Brewers or Cubs game. 
I did attend a taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Paul Riser (“Mad About You” tv show and book) was the guest. My exhb got us on the show and we got the full treatment. Limo ride to/from the studios, Kraft Services continental breakfast. We came close to being on air. A producer called us to a microphone in the audience. She coached us on what story to tell and where to look for queues when to talk and when to stop. I was 8 months pregnant with my son. I was definitely not thrilled at the prospect of being on tv. Thankfully we got bumped by a senior couple who were married for 60 years. It was fun, but until that producer told us ‘it’s a no go’ and waved us back to our seats I was freaking out.

4. Had a friend who shared the same birthday as you?  No! I had a co-worker who was a nasty ***ch. She changed procedures without consulting me, or my supervisor. I had worked there longer and actually set up the procedures (at my bosses instruction, which he approved long before she worked there.) She often mentioned the birth date we shared, and she was constantly talking about inappropriate things. What she said and did amounted to sexual harassment. She knew I was a partnered lesbian at the time and she constantly talked about hetero sex, and acted out... No need for you to see the graphic picture I had to see. Sure I reported her to HR. Nothing happened. After that, every time she went to her desk (which was in front of mine) she smirked at me. Of course doing it out of our bosses or anyone else’s sight.

5. Locked your keys in the car?  Yes. I even did it with the engine on. Back in high school/college I became a pro with a coat hanger. Back then that worked. I had old cars, I had to start and let them idle in the frigid WI weather. Fast forward to the ‘90’s and I was warming up my Explorer and went to clear the windows of snow. Yup, locked it. I had no money for a locksmith. I had to break a window. Pro tip...never break a wing window, it’s the most expensive. I can’t lock my keys in my Buick because when I accidentally attempted it, the door wouldn’t lock and the alarm started going off. I had the engine running. Of course! And my son was in the car.

6. Accidentally sent a text or email to the wrong person?  Quite a few times. Each time I was able to play it off and not get in trouble. This was before I met my wife.

7. Sat in the back of a police car?  Yes. Car accident in WI where my car wasn’t driveable. I had to go in the squad to the station to call someone to get me. (No cell phones back then.)

8. Fallen asleep at work?  Yes, due to medication I was on, I would nod off for a few moments and startle myself awake. Fun times, not!

9. Made a snow angel?  A few times.

10. Ridden in an ambulance?  Yes. About 20 times to accompany my daughter for hospital transfers due to needing a pediatric bed in a psych ward for her mental illness. Once with my son. I also had an ambulance trip to the ER after a car accident. 

What's the...

11. Worst household chore?  Today I would say cleaning the stove, cuz I wanted to surprise my wife. I don’t usually do any chores, but I thought I could start this because I could sit or lay down while the oven cleaner worked. I didn’t get far because the oven cleaner wasn’t spraying properly, spritzed on my arm and actually made 2 holes in my skin! I think I used about 6 alcohol wipes that I pressed into the wounds and wiped every which way to make sure the oven cleaner was completely gone. Then the oven cleaner stopped spraying entirely, even though it was full. But I’m gonna pass on that and say doing laundry at the laundromat. I HATE it! First off, I’m not allowed to go in the basement (back problems) so other family members always handled the laundry at home. For the laundromat trips, I drive, supervise my son, I put in the soap and coins. LOTS of coins. My son does all the moving and lifting.

12 .Worst color?  Vomit? It’s not an official Crayola Crayons color, but when I say vomit, you know what the color is!

13. Worst pizza topping?  Bad mozzarella cheese. By that I mean, that cheap stuff that’s not 100% actual cheese. It looks like plastic.

14. Worst weather?  That’s a tough one right now. Now I would say low teens/zero° weather cuz our furnace hasn’t been fixed/replaced yet. We use oil filled space heaters, as a result we have a new household record for our electric bill. $467.10, for ONE month! If we didn’t have this situation, I would probably say really hot weather. It’s just so uncomfortable. The sweating, the overheating, the wishing to jump in a cool pool. Lol! (We don’t know anyone with a pool.)

15. Worst self-care job (e.g. dressing, washing, shaving, teeth, toe nails)?  I don’t want to be gross, so imma skip over that one and say putting on a bra/shirt/hoodie/jacket because I have a rotator cuff tear in my right shoulder that has been extremely painful for months and my back pain which make dressing a challenge. We called this week for Orthopaedic dr appointments, I can’t get in until June.

16. Worst game?  Clue. Mostly because I find it boring, and certain members of my family are cheats at this game.

17. Worst school subject?  Gym. I actually failed one quarter in my sophomore year. The next quarter I had 2 gym periods per day on gym days and yes, one in the morning, one in the afternoon. That quarter I felt like all I did was change my clothes. 

18. Worst animal?  Mice/rats. I hate late fall when they try to get in the house. My male cat is really good at getting them and dropping them at my wife’s feet, but he’s learned circus tricks. He catches a mouse, beats him up (so much more pleasant to visualize), then flings them in the air, bats at them with a paw, chases after it, catches it, rinse and repeat. It’s absolutely hilarious to hear my wife tell it, but I have to stifle the laughs because she doesn’t find it as funny as I do (since I’m usually upstairs when those shenanigans are going on.)

19. Worst season?  Winter. I don’t mind driving in the snow, it’s the other drivers who feel that because they have a monster 4WD SUV they can exceed the speed limit and cut in and out while most of the rest of us are going 20 mph and trying soooo hard to be safe.

20. Worst TV show?  I rarely watch tv “live”. I record, but mostly watch the shows I like by streaming them. I just thought of one. Brooklyn Nine Nine. (Is there another Nine? Seems like it could go on and on.) I just don’t feel the lead deserved the show when there were clearly other SNL cast members who were more experienced, and more deserving.

Sunday Stealing-Thought Provoking Questions

1. Is it more important to love or be loved? To love.

2. If you had the chance to go back in time and change one thing would you do it? I would have divorced much sooner and moved.

3. If a doctor gave you five years to live, what would you try to accomplish? I'd try to make the time I had left with my immediate family more meaningful.

4. What is the difference between innocence and ignorance? Innocence means purity. 
Ignorance is knowing, but deliberately ignoring facts, rules.

5. What is the simplest truth you can express in words? Love of family. (For me, my immediate family.)

6. What gives your life meaning? See #5

7. Can there be happiness without sadness?  Pleasure without pain?  Peace without war? I would say no to all. How can you know what happiness is without feeling sadness? It would all be “sameness”.
How can you know what pleasure is never having felt pain? Pleasure would just be your “normal”. How can you know peace without war, because, again, it would just be your “normal”, not knowing of anything else.

8. What’s the one thing you’d like others to remember about you at the end of your life? 
That in spite of all the hardships, difficulties, and really bad times, I held myself up and did the best I could to raise my children and help my children to be the most that they can be. Raising 2 children with mental illnesses is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. Trying to put on that happy Mom face when you visit them in the hospital and when they are catatonic, not seeing you or the world around you, and seemingly not hearing anything. They might see and hear a little of what you do and say, but they do KNOW you are there, so you have to be upbeat and loving, and JUST. BE. THERE. How do I know? I’ve spent an incredible amount of time in pediatric psychiatric wards to see the other children with similar conditions whose family just isn’t there. It make a tremendous difference. 

9. Is there such a thing as perfect? No.

10. What do you love most about yourself? That through it all I have maintained my wit and sense of humor. And been able to...mostly...keep myself together.

11. Is it more important to do what you love or to love what you are doing? To love what you are doing, no matter what it is. I started out my first job was working at a gas station while I paid for college on my own. It was a smelly job that was too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter in that little kiosk. I loved it. The people I worked for were wonderful, like family. Working there gave me time to do my homework at work and it paid my community college tuition. It helped me reach my goal of getting my degree and getting a job in my field. Some people may look down on me for having worked at a gas station, that’s their problem because it helped me accomplish my goals. What other job let’s you do your homework during the slow periods with no customers? 

12. What do you imagine yourself doing ten years from now? Enjoying retirement.

13. What small act of kindness were you once shown that you will never forget? I’ve mentioned this story many times, but it was a kindness I will never forget. Christmas in the ‘60’s my neighbors collected money and surprised my Mom and sister with boxes of food and gifts while my Dad was in the hospital for months recovering from back surgeries. Back then they probably collected a lot less than $100 amongst all the neighbors. That helped my family get through a hard time and every time I think about it, it makes me think how wonderful communities were back then and how I wish things were like that now.

14. To what degree have you controlled the course your life has taken? I try to make the best decisions I can for my family. Like it or not, I’m the Captain of this ship.

15. If you looked into the heart of your enemy, what do you think you would find that is different from what is in your own heart? Who is MY enemy? I know I’ve had some in the past, but I don’t really feel like I have any right now. The only enemies I see are global enemies. As far as global enemies go, I think what’s in their hearts are directly what drives their actions. I think in many instances when you think about global enemies, things like greed and power come to mind. I don’t think I am greedy. I would like to be released from all the financial pressures I am under. I don’t need to live in a mansion with servants and the like. I like my modest home. As far as power? I would tend to agree that I like to be the one in power, in control of things. I think having 1 person generally control things helps provide stability. Yes, teamwork can do that, but ultimately someone has to reign it all in, especially when you have young adult children with mental illnesses.

Dream Start Ups

I have a storyline in my head that ran for a few years. Yes, really, years! I used it at bedtime to try to control my dreams, to stop the bad ones, the nightmares. I’ve gone through a lot and some of the bad dreams were a darker continuation of some of those bad times. Others were just horror movies I’ve seen gone wild. (Think zombie apocalypse.) It’s something I taught my kids when they complained of having bad dreams or being unable to sleep. With them, I told them to pick a favorite time in their life and expand on it, or about some place they’ve wanted to go. I simplified it for them.

Kind of dark, but I can get real creative with it. The Left Behind Series, (end of times) when they take up residence in a building in downtown Chicago. It started with a very small group of believers and in my story it grew into 2 communities, in 2 buildings with an underground bridge. 

Then it was all about sourcing food, prescriptions, supplies, building materials, furniture, setting up hydroponic fruit and vegetable gardens. Everyone has a job they rotate off so everyone does their fair share. No need for currency. 

It got really elaborate. It took into account everything a community has, all divided up on all the floors of the 2 buildings. Clubs, movie theater, coffee house, theatre that did small productions, even a small militia of sorts that went out at night seeking supplies. That same militia kept order in the 2 communities. Of course I was the head of it all. (After all, it’s my story.) I didn’t really have an official title, like mayor, or governor.) For long stretches I would have others handle the minutiae of running the 2 communities. During those times I would do storylines about the different parts of the communities. I’d spend time doing jobs in most of the areas. 

Every community member filled out a resume and everyone’s expertise was utilized. Carpenters, computer people who set up a secure internal network. Carpenters and painters secured the outer windows, painting them black and soundproofing. There was a cafeteria set up, people with cooking skills prepared menus and different cuisines. Security professionals set up infrared cameras outside the buildings and surrounding blocks so the area could be monitored to keep any trucks going on supply missions safe from the followers of the Antichrist and their police/military that hunt down the believers. There were even medical professionals.

It wasn’t just the logistics of setting up a community, I also set up relationship storylines within all of that. 

I need to get back to it because I know there is more that can be done with the story. Because I riffed off one small part in one of the books, I can continue with endless storylines. 

The storylines I created are very detailed and basically for my amusement, NOT for publication. What I’ve written above is just kind of an outline of the things I went into minute detail in my dream start up  Some of the characters were riffs on people I’ve met over the years. None of the characters in my dream start ups were from any of the books. The only one would really be the Antichrist, and even that was just the concept of what an Antichrist would be.

Take a book or series you really enjoyed. Or maybe a television show or movie. Change the characters to make it personal to you, then riff away.

Do you do dream start ups? What’s yours? Are you going to give it a try? What will you start with?

This and that

For whatever reason my back and shoulder pain has gotten much worse. There has been no change in what I do, no increase in activity level. Maybe it’s the weather? I’ve just felt awful. 

I was at the doctor today. I thought for sure I’d gained at least 10 pounds and that my A1c had increased. Surprise! I lost 5 pounds and my A1c went down 0.2. I need to get back on the low carb wagon. Doctor also gave me a list of fruits and veggies that increase inflammation. ☹️ So many really good veggies that I need to remove from my diet. He did increase my carb allowance per day. Yay! He also increased my pain meds. So that means I have to play the game the state requires pharmacies to play. I couldn’t get them today and they will probably be rationed out. That means more pharmacy runs. My spouse typically doesn’t go out much, therefore I’m the one that has to do the pharmacy runs. This rationing is really frustrating.

I’m completely exhausted. I’m sure poor sleep caused by my shoulder pain is the cause. I’ve been wearing oversized shirts and hoodies to help me dress myself, but it’s getting more painful and difficult.

The crime has increased in mine and surrounding burbs. Thursday some youths stole an Infinity QX56 in OP and went on a crime spree that left 2 people dead. They did catch them after a chase from Dolton to Thornton. That’s a long ride. My father-in-law lives in Thornton. Thank goodness they were caught. If that were my car I don’t think I’d want it back. Would you? In separate incident over the weekend, a senior man was hit over the head while attempting to use his garage keypad to close the garage. He was knocked unconscious and robbed. Did they really need to hurt him? I’m sure he would have given up his wallet had they only threatened him.

My daughter’s boyfriend is in the hospital with pneumonia. Please pray for him.

Sunday Stealing-Another Food Meme

Another Food Meme

There are things I want to rant about – I’m sure you can guess what they are. However, I am trying to be more positive this year and as such I will not be ranting. Instead I will answer a few questions from Sunday Stealing about a subject close to my heart – food.

Let’s dive in shall we?

1. How do you like your eggs?

Depends on my mood. Could be scrambled, omelette with spinach and feta cheese, or Denver omelette with hot sauce, Eggs Benedict, fried eggs with toast, or a homemade breakfast sandwich. We have a double sandwich maker, make a bunch ahead to freeze and microwave as needed. 

2. How do you take your coffee/tea:

Depends on my mood and what’s in the house. I drink black coffee, or with a teaspoon of flavored creamer, or half and half.

3. Favourite breakfast foods:

Omelette, hash browns, and bacon. Breakfast sandwich with ham or bacon (not really a fan of sausage). Eggs Benedict. Grits with butter and hot sauce. Fruit and cream flavored oatmeal packets, or plain oatmeal with a tablespoon of jam or marmalade. Healthy smoothie with kale, hemp protein powder, and chia seeds hidden in with frozen berries and a little plain yogurt. Any kid’s cereal with marshmallows and milk, if I really want to be bad! If I get up late and have to run to an appointment, I will eat a Nature Valley Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate Protein Bar, and grab an orange sparkling water, if the coffee pot is empty.

4. Peanut butter: smooth or crunchy?

I like both. Depends on my mood.

5. What kind of dressing on your salad?

Blue cheese, Greek, Italian, French, 1000 Island, Good Season’s Italian (I just found the crusts at my grocery store about 6 months ago), Cucumber Ranch, Ranch. We eat a lot of salad, so our fridge is stocked with a variety.

6. Coke or Pepsi?

Neither. I drink sparkling water only, and I have a huge variety of flavors to keep myself away from Coke and Pepsi. Spindrift-any flavor, Bubly Orange, Bubly Blackberry, Bubly Cranberry, Bubly Raspberry, Bubly Lime, Kroger’s Fizz Cola and Root Beer and Dr P. (When you haven’t had a real cola, rootbeer, or Dr Pepper in close to a year, these will taste exactly like a real soda.) I love Dasani, especially the grape, but it’s impossible to find. Actually any flavor Dasani is hard to find, shelves are always bare.

7. You feel like cooking. What do you make?

Anything I can cook in my Instant Pot, like Italian Beef, Pulled Pork, Italian Sausage. I love cooking, but due to my back problems I can’t stand over a pan to cook and I need help if something has to go in the oven. My son helps a lot. I make all types of cuisine. Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Indian, just about any cuisine.

8. You’re feeling lazy. What do you make?

If I’m just a little lazy, a sandwich. If I’m super lazy, cold cereal and milk.

9. You’re feeling really lazy. What kind of pizza do you order?

I prefer veggie over meat, but the billion pizza joints near me (really, we don’t need anymore, but they keep popping up) don’t have many veggies on their menu. I used to love Eduardo’s Pizza when I lived in Chicago. They had a great spinach pizza. Since I’m limited to what the pizza joints in my area have...Chicken Taco Pizza, or a combo black olive, mushroom, green pepper, onion. 

10. Is there a food you refuse to eat?

Pickled herring. My Dad had my Mom always buy it for the holidays. 🤢 I think I ate a small jar when I was pregnant, but that was purely the baby’s craving and not mine!

11. Favourite fruit & vegetable:

Favorite fruits would be watermelon with a little salt, or blackberries. Favorite’s hard to pick, I like nearly all of them. One that is just too expensive, but is really tasty in salads...radicchio. Arugula is good in salads too.  Otherwise roasted corn on the cob.

12. Favourite junk food:

Donkey brand tortilla chips (with salt), pico de gallo from the Mexican grocery, and homemade guacamole (or from the Mexican restaurant nearby).

13. Favourite between meal snack:

Honeycrisp apple, or cheese, or carrots and hummus. I love hummus with tabbouleh and carrots and other veggies, but tabbouleh is hard to find outside of Chicago.  My son and I found a Middle Eastern fast food place near my daughter’s job, it was close, but the recipe wasn’t quite what we are used to. We used to eat at several authentic Middle Eastern restaurants in Chicago and the north suburbs. 

14. Do you have any weird food habits:

Yes – I tend to eat all of an item before eating something else, and I always save my favorite for last.

15. You’re on a diet. What food(s) do you fill up on?

Veggies, salad.

16. How spicy do you order Indian/Thai?

Depends on my mood. Usually somewhere in the middle, but I have eaten some spicier dishes. There is an Indian Buffet near the laundromat I have to frequent (because my washer and dryer were killed in a flood). They have a spicy fish dish, that is spicier than you’d think, but it’s delicious if you just have a few cubes.

17. The perfect nightcap?

I don’t have one often, but JD on the rocks or any other whiskey or bourbon.

Sunday Stealing-Winter Questions


    How do you get past the gray skies during winter? It’s definitely depressing. It’s been terribly dark and dreary here for several days.

    Do you like snow? Why or why not?  I love the way it coats the trees and makes my yard look like a winter wonderland. I love how it got me out of a trip to Wheaton Thursday. I do not love the childish fights between my 25 and 26 year old about shoveling and how my spouse or I have to keep sending them back out to shovel properly. I’ve got a new car. Pretty darn near new, and I don’t want chunks of snow left on the driveway that turn into ice chunks, which makes it hard to navigate in and out of the driveway. Also, I don’t need that situation on the porch and path to said car. The last thing I need is a fall. And really, why did I need to explain for 20 minutes why you MUST remove the snow from the porch handrails? Really? How do I steady myself with my cane and holding onto a handrail with 2+ inches of snow with my bare hands? How hard is it to clear it off? I mean, really?

    What are your favorite activities to do during the winter?  Bundle up and watch a movie, binge watch something on one of the streaming services. Tonight I’ll be finishing season 2 of “Shrill” with Aidy Bryant (SNL). Also, making a healthy, hearty soup.

    What does a perfect winter day look like to you?  
Snow is coming down steady. No plows have come through yet, so we can’t even think about leaving the house. Snuggled up under some warm blankets, a nice warm cup of coffee, or homemade soup.

    What are your favorite meals/food you enjoy eating during the winter?  
Chili, split pea soup, skinny soup.

    What is your favorite winter holiday and why?  Christmas.  

    What is your favorite pizza flavor and toppings.  I like chicken taco pizza, or a veggie pizza with spinach, broccoli, artichoke hearts, black olives, peppers, a little red onion. Just load it up with veggies. And if you really want to be decadent, add some spoonfuls of ricotta cheese here and there.

    What are some items in your daily bag/ backpack. 
I rarely carry a bag. I’m a pocket person, that’s why I practically live in cargo permitting. If I must carry a bag, it’s my Bellini Cross Body Messenger bag. I can fit my iPhone, iPad Mini, wallet, and a pack of CHoward’s Violet Mints. The mints because my Mom always had a pack of them in her purse and it smelled heavenly, and I have to have my bag smell like that. I ran out and went in search of them yesterday. Had to go to the other location of an old timey candy store because the store where I live was out. 

    Your favorite snacks. 
Popcorn, dark chocolate. Those Brookside Dark Chocolate covered fruits. Blueberries, cherries. 

    Some foreign countries that you would like to visit  Ireland, Italy, Australia. Shoot, I’d be happy with a trip to Vegas. I don’t need anything far away and expensive.

    What things that remind you of home  
My family, my kitties, something delicious cooking in the kitchen.

    If you have one, some items from your Amazon Wishlist  I have a crap ton of stuff on my Amazon Wishlists. Craft stuff, DIY tools, stuff for projects, books, curtains, gift ideas for my family, pet food (darn, finicky spouse’s cat, really hard to find the ONE wet cat food flavor she will eat).

    What was your favorite Christmas gift?  
When I was a kid, a Spirograph set. I’ve wanted the deluxe set for years. I’ve been dropping hints, I even said flat out I want one, but alas, I continue to wait for one. I loved it when I was a kid. Now that I’m an adult I think it would be good to use along with my CRICUT.

I’ve been bad

A little background...I grew up in Wisconsin. Green Bay Packer country. However, I have NEVER, will NEVER be a Packer fan. I have always been a Chicago Bears fan...ALWAYS. 

Everyone I am Facebook friends with from high school have been talking trash about da Bears forever. A few of them have been relentless. It got to the point that I couldn’t stand Kevin’s snarky posts and I started snoozing him every 30 days. Why not unfriend him and block him? No. This Sunday was precisely the reason why I haven’t done that.

Have I sunk to their level? No need. Because I have such a rep for being an 😇 I get my kicks in other, less obvious ways. After the game I posted this:
I knew exactly what the final score was and who didn’t win. I just wanted to see how they reacted.  

1st Comment:  37-20 (Gary)
2nd Comment: Who had 37? (Me)
3rd Comment:  Not Green Bay! (Dick)
4th Comment:  Really? (Me)
5th Comment:  Really, Packers lost. (Dick)
6th Comment:  Packers lost. (Gary)

They were so helpful letting me know who lost. 😂 And they both were nice enough to repeat it for me. My spouse and I were ROTFL our ashes off.

Then there were others posts at half time. 
One was removed that read: “0-27 Come on Packers.”
Then there were the great memes:

Then there were the posts by Kevin, who always talked smack about da Bears. He was never polite about it, he was always mean-spirited. He posted:

“Clearly there were a bunch of imposters!!
Come on Green Bay Packers play some damn football!!”

It just warmed my heart! I didn’t respond because I won’t stoop to his level.

Then there were these posts:

Bwah ha ha ha ha! Really? 

I didn’t watch the entire game, just the last 5 minutes. They were the best part!

Sorry. Not sorry! Bears and Packers fans take the rivalry seriously. Some can be really nasty. Was I nasty? No need. I still got my kicks. I still can’t believe how helpful Gary and Dick were. 😂😂😂😂😂
