Banquet Blizzard

This year, the Chamber Annual Banquet was postponed due to weather. Despite being located in Kansas, known for its unpredictable winter weather, we have never made it a practice to reserve two dates "just in case." (Mental note, do so next year!)

After having the site already decorated, speeches prepared and food placed the oven, we were finally forced to postpone due to electrical outages caused by the winter weather. 

Because of the forecast predicting possible snowy conditions, we had begun communicating with various publics the week prior to the event. From traditional to social media and from coffee shops to grocery stores, the topic of the Annual Banquet and its possible postponement was the talk of the town. 

I guess what they say is true - there is no such thing as bad publicity! Just bad weather.

After Halftime

A typical conversation between a mom and her sports-enthusiastic son:

Mom: It’s time to brush your teeth.

Son: I will at halftime.

Unfortunately, for those atypical chats between a mom and her sports-obsessed, child-of-a-sports-announcer son, that conversation takes a slightly different turn.

Because in the Wellbrock home, Garrett spends hours playing/calling/enacting imaginary games with imaginary players and he keeps ongoing imaginary stats for these imaginary teams. The imagination continues with a full schedule, brackets and post-season. And all of these games have coaches’ interviews, pre and post-game analysis, time-outs, media time-outs, rain delays, power outages, injuries…I think you get the gist.

So when I ask my son to brush his teeth and he replies “at halftime” this really means nothing to me. It indicates no particular time frame nor does it mean teeth will actually get brushed.

Don’t even get me started on the answer “after the game” – you just cannot imagine the number of overtimes one imaginary game can have. Especially at bedtime.
