Why, you ask, might a born and bred Packer fan stoop to such blasphemy? Could The Wife even consider something so vile and out of character, not to mention morally repugnant?
Let's consider her motivations:
- She is competitive by nature. Poker, Trivial Pursuit, business . . . challenge her, and she feels obligated to compete.
- She is all about proving herself. If you want The Wife to do something, tell her you don't think she has the guts to do it.
- She's a writer. Writing is about making you believe. Creating an emotion and drawing you in. Suspension of disbelief. This sounds like a challenge to her writing skills.
- Ken promised me free purple pumps. Given that I am apparently obligated to wear a purple jersey courtesy of my favorite Viking fan (its a small pool, trust me) in the near future, a pair of purple pumps might come in handy. And they are free.
After much soul-searching (well, 15 minutes of soul-searching . . . its been a busy day), I have decided to accept the challenge. Gushing to ensue.
But first, let me go look at myself one last time in the mirror before I totally sell out.
