My dad has decided to boycott WV. Not because Rocky lost there, but because he lost there so overwhelmingly. He says that points to the state's unwillingness to let go of its racist attitudes and he's not playing anymore. That's right, D is taking his ball, and he's going home.
You may say to yourself, how would that even impact us? Well, WV is right over the line. Just a 45 or so minute drive from downtown. If that. You have to drive through there to get to Charlotte. So D is not getting gas when he drives down there. He's also not stopping to eat or meeting in the middle there anymore. WV, YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN!!!
Also, it's really gorgeous and the first time I drove there, I said, "I won't live in the snow, but I'll buy a winter home here with a helicopter pad so I can just float in and float out at will." There goes that notion. I'll have to find a pretty state that went for Rocky. CT maybe? (I know Joy will love that.) Then I can hang out at casa Ash with the fabulous people. Yay!!! I actually packed 4 pairs of shoes and wondered "Is that enough?" I'll be there only 2 full days (but 4 nights!!). Hot mess. I think I'll be okay with my wardrobe. If not... SHOPPING!!! Lol.
