For those of you new around these here parts, you need to understand that as much as MrZ and I love each other dearly. We do not agree on what teams to root for in the world of SEC football. I was born and raised in Knoxville, TN – home of the University of Tennessee – so my blood runs orange and white. (And if you’ll remember, I’m kinda outnumbered here). MrZ has been a Crimson Tide (University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa) fan his whole life because he was born with only 1/100th of his brain. LilZ used to be an Auburn fan but switched to being a TN Volunteer fan a few years ago. I never pressured him to join the dark side, but when he did? A choir of orange-clad angels sang in praise.
Last year, Santa Clause bought NikkiZ a cheerleader outfit for both teams. However, since I get her dressed most of the time, you know which one she’ll wear more, right? Today is the first day both of our teams play this season. So – yesterday, I put her in this outfit and snuck out the door before MrZ ever saw her. When we came home, I had her and LilZ pose for pictures before MrZ saw either one of them. I then changed them both back into non-partial clothing and just waited until later to show him the pictures.
“She looks very unhappy in those clothes. I hope she hates you for that. She’d better hate you for that. “
