On a recent quick trip to Houston on business,
my husband and I decided to pick up our grandsons and take them to an Astros
Once settled in our seats
4 chili dogs and 2 Icees ($39.00),
2 bags of cotton candy ($10.00),
and 1 bag of roasted peanuts ($4.50),
I ended up sitting by my oldest grandson.
I don’t pretend to understand these prices, but once you have been funneled through
various ballpark checkpoints and someone has dug through your purse to see if you brought in snacks,
I just let it all go.
Besides , we were having too much fun.
So, as I sat next to my oldest grandson,
and we began to quietly talk about the game,
and the stats posted on the scoreboard,
I had one of my ALL TIME,
grandmother moments that I will
He turned to me in our mutual enthusiasm
about what had just occurred on the field, and he said:
”Dude! Did you see that?”
And as I kept my eyes straight ahead,
in order to maintain my composure and appear cool and worthy of such an address,
world that had just been turned on its axis,
I nonchalantly replied (tears in my eyes),
“I know- right?”
