When I die, just bury me in CenturyLink Field.

My addiction to the Seattle Seahawks is impacting my health.

Last night, they played at 8:15pm. Well, ya girl is SNOOZING by 9pm, so this presented a major problem. I watched for a few minutes, then shut it off at promptly 8:58pm, telling myself I would wake up to the outcome and be OK no matter what. I plumb SHOT out of bed at midnight & the first thing I did was check the final score. SEAHAWKS WIN, BABAY. Well, now I’m obviously too hyped up to sleep. I spend the rest of the evening tossing and turning with joy and faint anxiety that I dreamt the win as opposed to it being real. I legit woke up 6 more times dreaming of Russell Wilson and company just tossing the pigskin and being my baby boys.

    There’s likely a market for vegan hot dogs in God- forsaken Seattle. And we know sleeping on the street is ok so housing wont be a problem.

    Good luck to you, lass!
