Loyalties



All of you who read this blog probably know I have lived in Henderson my entire life. Okay there was those two years in Provo, but I ended up getting my Mrs. degree right here in my home town. I went to Basic high school (yes I got a basic education, believe me I've heard that one before) but I never really had a strong affinity for the place. I was pretty involved in school activities so high school was fun for me, but I've always felt kind of eh about the school. I didn't even attend my ten year reunion. Our class did not have spirit, no we didn't! Anyway, our big rival was the gators of Green Valley. Three of Chris's siblings went there for a while, and we don't live to far from GVHS so Chris is a gator fan, but I can not bring myself to cheer for GV! If Basic and Green Valley are playing against each other I will cheer for Basic every time, even if I don't know any one on the team. On Friday I stayed up to watch the late news just to see if Basic had won (they did, apparently they got some talent since I went there). So I guess I do have some loyalty to my alma mater and it will probably take one of my kids attending GV and being honored as their greatest student ever to change my gator hater status.
