Blast from the past: a trip to an OHS football game.
Before heading to Friday Night Lights at OHS we had a dinner consisting of decadent chili cheese dogs and cheese fries at the Vienna Inn. Don’t worry, I managed not to stand down wind from Jamie post meal. I want Elly to grow up with a Mother after all. I didn’t let Elly sample those foods yet, that would be child abuse. She happily ate her healthy meal while the rest of us developed IBS.
Being back in high school was surreal. Ah, the memories of Boones Farm-masked insecurities. Some changes since ’96:
- The home team switched sides.
- The fans are SUPER into the game.
- The team is good.
- Everyone looks to be about 12 which is weird because we looked so mature at that age.
Elly’s favorite part of the game was the halftime show naturally, especially the dance team. (Sorry the video is sideways, I don’t know how to change that, if you do, I’d love to know.)
Jamie asked one of the adults working a merchandise table if they sold any baby gear. The woman working was highly offended that he was encouraging teen pregnancy. Um, ok.
It was a night of some good clean fun, my favorite type.
