You know how when you have something really important going on one day, the first thing you think about when you wake up is that thing? Like, "It's my wedding day!" or "We're going on vacation today!" or "Crap, I have a test today." Well, the first thing I thought when I woke up this morning was, "We play LSU today." Whether it's something I'm excited about or anxious about, whatever is most important to me that day is the first thing on my mind.

So, today IS the LSU game...and I'm a little nervous. Things have changed for me since the Alabama game. I've been let down...disappointed... And I don't have the excitement in me that I had going into the 'Bama game. I'm more reserved. More calm. And since my last blog,
stating how I feel constantly exposed to disappointment in loving the Bulldawgs, I thought of a better example of how I really felt:

It's like the prom... It's prom day, you're all dressed up, hair's up, make-up is on, you've been looking forward to this day for months. You are SO EXCITED. You tell everybody about it. You have butterflies in your stomach. You think, "This is IT!" And then......your date doesn't show up. THAT is how I felt going into and coming out of the Alabama game.

Cut to today. My date apologized, made up for it, and asked me to Prom II. I said
yes. It's at 3:30 on October 25th (day proms are the newest thing- didn't you know?). My hair is done, my (red) dress is on, my fingernails are painted (red).... But I'm not excited. Not yet. Not until my date shows up. Until then, I'm anxious. I'll reserve my excitement, my pride, my eager anticipation. I'm too worried to get excited just yet.

One thing's for sure, I will not be Josey Grossey way.

Geaux Dawgs.
