Tonight we begin the banquet circuit. All of the fall sports seem to culminate in a banquet and we parents get to eat fried chicken and rigatoni until we bust.
So - we'll start off this evening at the cross country banquet, where I KNOW that my son (team captain) will be expected to give a speech. Has he written it? No. Has he jotted down a few notes? No. Am I ready to kill the young man? YES. If he embarrasses me, the next news story I post won't have anything to do with squirrels.
Tomorrow night we'll eat at the high school soccer banquet. Then there will be the band banquet. Then there will be the rec. soccer banquet. Thank god there's no referee banquet.
