Okay, so this Sunday is the Super Bowl. Oh, how I know. My husband is a die hard Steelers fan with serious gear to prove it. So, while everyone in the family is gathering at my in-laws house, terrible towels in one hand, guacamole in the other, I will be, well, at a play. What you say? A play, I say. Yes, I am a former playwright who hasn't set foot in playhouse in many years, and, on Super Bowl Sunday, while my husband's favorite team is playing, I am going to a play. But, it's not just any play. It's a family play, written by a family member, about my family, my grandmother's family to be exact.
So, despite the urge to see the most disliked quarterback in the NFL pull off a #7 win and make history...I kind of want to get some dirt on my family. We all know that conflict is what keeps us interested and I'm looking forward to the conflict, the drama, the yelling and screaming, the inevitable culmination in some sort of victory, be it personal or professional. And though I will REALLY miss Howie Long giving me the...it's Howie Long, he can give me anything he likes...I choose to support my family, specifically Kelley Kingston-Strayer who wrote A Southern Exposure. The only downside is that I can't eat guacamole while watching the play.
