24. But you'll always have that memory
of her reaction to the Ohio State-Michigan game to smile about.

I grew up in San Diego and sometimes scare people with my creepy knowledge of the Air Coryell-era Chargers. I used to watch games with my dad; he loved that I asked questions and wanted to learn all the rules (actually, he probably wished I would shut up, but he faked it really well b/c he loved me).

Although it is not the same watching without him, I still enjoy it, and when I think of him I smile.

Cheesy and bad flicks are often just the ticket to escape, 2 hours at a time.

And you're welcome. We're all her to listen (read) and support. Since I've been here, I have been amazed at the generousity and humanity of this community. I'm still a relative beginner compared to many of the folks here, but I feel lucky to be a part and just want to give back to a place that offers a comfortable place to be myself.
