Worked on tax returns tonight, did some Photoshop'ing related to a topic in the most-recent "At The Bar" fanpost, then wrote a long comment in said fanpost. By the time the surface tension between my fingertips and the keyboard finally relented, it was 10 p.m., the kids were long put to bed, and a serving of delicious freshly baked mahi-mahi was waiting on the stove.
Even though many of us have loved ones who are die-hard Lakers fans, I can't think of any couples who share a kindred addiction to SS&R. For those of us who are SS&R denizens, widow(er)-making isn't confined to the time between tip-off and the post-game recap of each game. Frankly, loving a Silver Screen and Roller requires sacrifice -- whether it's with a smile or a scowl (those of you with kids know the threshold for the meter tilting toward the latter is lower in your cases ;-).
And now, the playoffs are about to start. But before they do, please remember to tell your significant other, and any others whose company or companionship you hold dear, that you love and appreciate them now -- and will once again . . .
. . . at the end of June, that is.
As for me, I'm buying boxes of chocolates: one for every round of the playoffs.
