Hot dogs, popcorn, and sweat

That’s probably what I smelled like when I finally got back to the country house last night. So I took a shower and got all clean.
I helped our student group selling concessions at the LittleU’s opening football game yesterday. Do people only go to football games to eat? Seriously! Not really complaining though because they get at least $150 for every game they work (and they’re doing 3), which helps pay for members to go to things like ALA in Chicago next year. Good cause and all that.
And, although I missed most of the game, it was actually pretty fun. I had a great time despite the rush of people from 6 pm to 9 pm. Kind of brought me back to when I worked at the Fairbanks airport gift shop and we’d have the huge groups of Japanese tourists come through. The shop owner always had extra people on hand for those times and we stayed busy for about 3 hours straight. It was nice for the commission part. Of course, I didn’t personally get paid for last night…unless you count some Dr. Pepper, a hot dog, and a pretzel.
I did see a one touchdown scored in the game after I got done working. And then I left. The score was 35-0 in the fourth quarter and unless some miracle occurred for Western Colorado State, I think LittleU won. Always good to open the season with a team you can definitely beat. Gets people excited. I’m looking forward to future games. I did buy a season ticket this year and plan to hit all the games that I can.
DH has a parade tomorrow in Chapman. Not sure if I’ll go or not because it’s in the afternoon and it’s supposed to be another hot one. Tuesday I make the trip to IL. Staying with the in-laws for a night. It will be nice to see them again and visit a bit.
