My friend Kim posed the following question to me today in email:
"Tomorrow Ty has a football game at the base of Mt. Lemmon at 7 but we have to be there by 5:30. Would you like to come with me???? We would have fun."
I responded with,
"Um, no, I would not like to go to a KID's football game with you - that's combining two things I hate - children and sports. Why would I want to do that???"
I might as well have added,
"Why don't you just invite me to a smokers only bible study hosted by Bill O'Reilly, held in the middle of July in Death Valley, California? Oh, and maybe you can serve souse sandwiches. Ooo, that would be fun."
