Super Bowl LVIII: A Wifes Selfish Pain

The Super Bowl is an event that brings people together, whether they are die-hard football fans, commercial enthusiasts, or simply excited to see Usher perform like me. However, for some of us, the spread on the table and the impending departure of guests take precedence over the game itself. I don't mean to be petty but I am selfish with a perspective of someone who is more interested in the food, drinks, and Usher's performance than the Super Bowl itself. 🏈 DONT JUDGE ME.

The Allure of the Spread, ooooooh Chile. I don’t know about you but when the Super Bowl begins, my mind immediately drifts towards the tantalizing spread on the table. The thought of indulging in an array of delicious snacks and finger foods becomes all-consuming. Who can blame me for being more interested in the buffalo wings and nachos than the game itself? After all, food is the true MVP of any Super Bowl party. Am I the only one?

Here is the real problem. The Liquor Dilemma!

I have to go to work tomorrow. Once I have satisfied my cravings with the delectable spread, my attention naturally shifts to the liquor. The Super Bowl is an excellent excuse to enjoy a few drinks, but it also poses a dilemma. Do I indulge and risk feeling groggy at work the next day, or do I exercise self-control and miss out on the fun? It's a tough decision, but one that I must make in the name of responsible adulthood. At least that's what my husband begs of me.

Well, here is where it gets crazy. The unwanted guests and this is the most selfish aspect of my Super Bowl experience is my impatience with guests overstaying their welcome. As the clock strikes 9 pm, my mind starts to wander towards the impending departure of people from my house. It's not that I don't enjoy their company, but when work looms the next day, my selfishness takes over. I can't help but yearn for the moment when I can bid farewell to my guests and finally unwind in peace.

I said it! Boy oh boy the Sacrifice for Love

despite my lack of interest in the game, I find myself obligated to endure it due to my husband's passion for football. His high school football days have left an indelible mark on him, and he genuinely enjoys watching the Super Bowl. As a loving spouse, I reluctantly put my own desires aside and join him in the living room, pretending to be invested in the game. It's a small sacrifice for the sake of marital harmony. But I just think about you know who and it all seems to go away temporarily.

Usher, the Saving Grace. Amidst the chaos of football and the selfish thoughts swirling in my mind, there is one beacon of hope: Usher's performance. The anticipation of seeing him take the stage and mesmerize the audience with his talent is the highlight of my Super Bowl experience. I can't help but daydream about being in the crowd, lost in the magic of his performance. Usher, you are the true MVP of my Super Bowl evening baby. I mean SIR Cuteness , respectfully.

While the Super Bowl may be a significant event for many, there are those of us who find ourselves more interested in the spread on the table, the liquor, and the departure of guests. However, amidst our selfishness, we can still find joy in the anticipation of Usher's performance. So, whether you're a football fanatic, a commercial enthusiast, or a dreamer like me, let's embrace the humor in our selfishness and enjoy the Super Bowl in our own unique way.

Thank you for laughing with me. By the way I am a basketball 🏀 mommy. Football wife and love watching them both love the game. The good thing about it is I know everything about it so I'm almost there 💯
