Most people who know me realize that sports are not my cup of tea. That phrase alone likely shows that I can't even make good sports metaphors.
Today, Chicago is apparently playing in a very important game. I don't think I'll watch it, but I'll make effort to show some civic pride. As most folks know, when I do a birthday party, I like to bring a special pre-made balloon for the birthday child. This is one of my favorite parts of doing parties.
The party I'm doing today is for a first birthday. For whatever reason, the child has not yet indicated a preference for favorite balloons. Astounding! I offered to bring a surprise, and thinking of things was tough...cute, and for a boy.
Well, it's the big game day, so I kind of hedged my bets and am bringing two sculptures! Yes, two!
and a Bear:
Here's to hoping that they like them!
