Lethargic Longhorn

September 29, 2006

Dear Gentleman in the Winco Wearing a Burnt Orange T-shirt:

Next time you are wearing a Texas Longhorns T-shirt in a grocery store in Boise, Idaho and a cute three year old tries to make a connection with you (because he too has a tie to Texas), by holding up the first and and last fingers of his right hand and saying, "Hook 'em!" this is what you are supposed to do:

1.) Give him a big smile and maybe a little chuckle.

2.) Say "Hook 'em!" back.

3.) If you are feeling really chatty, throw in some commentary on Mac Brown or Vince Young.

This is what you are not supposed to do:

1.) Give him a thin little half smile and say "I'm just a fan" with all the energy of a dead armadillo and then look away.

(See, we actually suspected you were a fan by the t-shirt you were wearing. That's why we thought we'd try to be friendly and give you the hook 'em sign. If you can't get behind this Texas mentality buddy, you don't deserve to be wearin' the burnt orange.)

Jeez. We've had more enthusiam from out of state Aggies fans!!

Sincerely,

Overprotective Mother

Argh. What was he thinking? Who could refuse those blue eyes? That earnest face?

I know I ought to have more patience with others. But please God, give it to me fast!

He does not deserve to wearing that shirt.

He obviously does not bleed orange.
