Happy Super Bowl Sunday, if you’re into that kind of thing. I know I am. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I won’t waste your pre-game time pretending that I give a crap about football or that I don’t have to Google “Super Bowl” every single year when I write this post to remember whether it’s one word or two. I don’t love football. I don’t even love Super Bowl commercials anymore. But I really do love this day. I love cooking party food. I love chatting and laughing with friends and then shutting up real quick when something important that I don’t understand suddenly happens on the big screen. I love the Americanness of it all. And I love that it sweeps me up with the rest of you and welcomes me in, even if I don’t quite understand what it’s all about.
