Cary asked the waitress why we were given trainer coffee cups (meaning small). She said that there were a bunch of old people complaining that they couldn't get their lips over the edge of the bigger ones. What??? That cracked me up, that is what she really said! (We had carafes of coffee, so it wasn't like they were trying to short us on coffee or anything, so that must be the real reason.)
But back to the story of our day with Mom. Cary and I began watching football. OSU was on. Mom came over for dinner at around 4:00 to watch the Oregon game with us, and told us that the OSU/UCLA game was on a TV time delay, and that OSU had already won. OKAY, no need to follow that game super closely anymore. The Yankees/Phillies World Series game was on a rain delay, and the Oregon/USC game had nothing wrong with it, expect for the announcer, Brent Mussberger, who apparently had not watched an Oregon game in 20 years. He was totally surprised that we not only won, but we kicked USC's butt! He could only bring up the Boise State game and the punching situation about every 20 minutes. Mom and Cary thought it was time for him to retire. He reminded me of that announcer on the movie Mystery Alaska with Russell Crowe.
We enjoyed the game and ate our dinner at around 6:00. Cary took his Mom and Grandma over each a plate of food, which turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. While we finished watching the Oregon game and the World Series game, I finished a scarf. Mom went home around 9:00, and I went to bed. I was tired. We did a lot yesterday. Mom has more energy than Cary and I combined, and anybody who reads this and knows her knows I am not kidding!
It was a fun day. We didn't get one trick-or-treater, by the way.
