Kasey has a good question today:
What is the Best Advice someone has ever given you?
The first thing that popped into my mind was my mother telling me when I was younger that I need to be interested in sports. She told me this, not to get a boyfriend, but for when the time came that I had a boyfriend or husband and if he liked sports then I'd be able to relate in that area.
It sounds simple but let me tell you...my husband LOVES sports and the fact that I also appreciate sports appeals to him. He loves being able to have conversations with me about certain games...(we're mainly football fans), that I know which Mike is which on Mike and Mike in the Morning, that I know that when they hold up the D and the cut out of a fence, that means defense (my cousin did not know this), that we are able to have a March Madness bracket challenge (which is won by the way), and so on... Now I will say that I'm not as big of a fan as he is, like listening to sports radio and tracking statistics on line and stuff, but I do enjoy sports enough for Rondell.
One time I asked Rondell how he would feel if I didn't know anything about sports and he got this scared look on his face and said he wouldn't like it.
So, I think for me, my mom's advise worked!
