Sunday 160 - Cold Turkey

Restlessness replaced sleep.
Nausea and cold sweats enveloped him.
The craving was intense
but he knew he could no longer get his fix.
Football season was over.

Sounds like my son, but he also loves basketball (GO BLAZERS) and Nascar. I also love a good car race, must be the redneck in me. Take heart, it's only a few short months til it starts again.
Mine is up.

Mama Zen said...

I had already changed that last line to read:

"but he knew he could no longer get his fix
Football season had begun."

Football more powerful than coke?
Woo-Hoo!

Haha!

This is how I feel whenever I haven't had candy in a few days. Or if I've gone too long without reading a book.

I know it's late on Sunday, but after a grotty night's sleep , today was a write off! However, I thought I'd let you know I'd not forgotten you - I've just written this, and decided to put it in a comment here, instead! LOL :)

The midnight oil was burning, but of a sudden, I realised there was a bird singing its heart out in the darkness. My heart sang too, with the unexpected melody.

Larry said...

Damn sound like football is pretty addictive EH?

Hey MM...over on this side of the ocean the late night movie was "Friday Night Lights"
Suffice to say I "get" it now..not the rules of the game mind you, but the passion for it is something else!

The same thing is happening in this house. I saw some basketball in passing, and I saw him outside fertilizing the grass, and now it's a Rocky movie? Wow. I'm so sorry.
