Don't try to concentrate

Back in January, we really got excited to watch the Superbowl in Dallas this year. We ordered pizza, drank one of Daddy's Cokes and popped popcorn. When the game came on, we were glued to the TV. But, after about 5 minutes this is how the rest of the game went. This is a sample of about 20 minutes worth of talking during the game. I started writing them down on my phone after about 10 questions....

Mom, I have a riddle.

Mom, my neck hurts.

Mom, how many seconds in a minute?

Mom, what does intercepted mean?

Mom, my juice box doesn't have a straw.

Mom, who has the ball? Mom, was that good?

Mom, is the college football?

Mom, did our team get that touchdown?

Is it over? "No it's not even half-time yet." Oh, how much longer til it's over?

Mom, I have another riddle.

And so it went.... Of course, I wouldn't have it any other way... Well, maybe. ;)
