Sunday Afternoon

I’m waiting for the TV. My husband, who is watching the Raiders and Broncos game, informs me there’s only 14 minutes left.

“Meaning it still has about thirty minutes or more,” I say and groan.

“If you need to watch a program you can,” he offers.

“No. I agreed to let you watch your game.” I glance at the flat screen, at a clash of black and silver into orange and blue. Shake my head.

“Does your Mom watch football?” I ask.

“She doesn’t.”

“Then we have something in common.”

“But your Mom watches football. She’s more a college fan though.”

“I know.” I drag out the long ‘o.’ “She’s always watched football. She just loves BYU.”

“BYU and Utah have a big game next Saturday in the Las Vegas Bowl,” my husband says.

“That doesn’t matter,” I say and leave the room. I pick up my notebook and click the pen.
