Hey, It’s Jet Here.
Welcome back NBA! Mom and I missed you! We wanted to watch all five slated games yesterday, however, you know Mom, always working on her “to do” list. She should take a page out of my game book. My strategy for great days includes lots of dare I use the term, “cat naps”, good food, playtime, social visits, grooming/massage, stretching, yawning, educational opportunities and more stuff like that.
Back to hoops. Mom decided she had accomplished enough to give herself a break to watch the Miami Heat v. Dallas Mavericks game. Except, ever the multi-tasker, she thought she could watch AND grill vegetables and chicken. Since she set up at the family room table, I was a bit confused, until I smelled the plumes of marinated goodness filling the air. I had the perfect vantage point to multitask as well. One of my three favorite family room cuddle spots is on the couch with my head on the remaining part of the arm. (I humbly offer this explanation.) This perch allowed me to watch Mom and watch the game with a subtle turn of my head.
As DWade and LeBron (who have a bunch of nicknames like me by the way) masterfully built a commanding lead, Mom built a commanding pile of grilled carrots, zucchini, onion (I know, I can’t have these), and red bell pepper. Mom cleaned up her mess during commercials. The veggies cooled down in the fourth quarter like my boys. Mom let me taste each of the vegetables except the onions. Delicious! Since I could not decide which veggie I liked the best, Mom game me another one of each. I still couldn’t decide, however, Mom had already combined everything in the bowl and put the finished mix in a container. Bummer.
The Heat held on to their lead and won the game. Yippee. I won the grilled vegetable game.
Another great sports day.
