A Normal Thursday Night and Plan B

So who bakes 6 dozen chocolate chip cookies and 6 dozen oatmeal cookies while watching football and then college basketball on a Thursday night after the kids are in bed? Just call me Martha ... knocking more stuff off that to do list ... worked out ... got Grandma and Grandpas room cleaned and linens on the bed .... enjoying a beverage now!

Plan B - gee I thought I had already gone over this. First off Mr. ESPN knows he was Plan B ... and is fine with it since he won the ultimate prize - ME! Mr. ESPN and I met in college our junior year ... we became friends and talked "sports" but I was totally not interested in him as a boyfriend nor did I want a boyfriend. The fall of my senior year I needed a date to a formal. I was adamant about it being just a date and nothing more. So I talked to 3 of my guy friends Matt, Chad and Jim ... we came up with Plan A - a guy named Sheffler who came from a family with lots of money and had a nice Jeep Grand Cherokee but not the brightest bulb in the box (it was one date not a relationship ladies)... and Plan B, Mr. ESPN. My boys (Matt, Chad and Jim) tried to work Plan A but all of them thought Plan B was a much better option and pursued it more heavily (and yes when we discussed it we always referred to them as Plan A and B not by their names). Matt ultimately encouraged Mr. ESPN to ask me to the formal (which happened to be two days after my 21st birthday when they took me out at midnight ... but that is a whole other story). Anyway after one date, Mr. ESPN couldn't resist my charms and the rest is history!! Lucky man he is!!

I somehow managed to miss that story over the last 4 years I've known you. It's a good thing you went with Plan B :)

I was there at the time, but somehow I still just cannot imagine you with Sheffler! Too funny to even think about!
To quote the great and beautiful A-Team - "I love it when a plan comes together!"
