This is the thing about living in a college town... everyone is obsessed with said college. We moved here in September 2005 and my daughter's Christmas list that year included a Jayhawk sweatshirt and necklace. Keep in mind, that until that August we had no intentions of moving to Kansas anytime soon, let alone Lawrence, our kids had no idea what a Jayhawk was.
So every once in awhile I end up at the grocery store on game day and feel a bit out of place. Everyone... and I mean EVERYONE is dressed in KU apparel. The customers, the cashiers, the baggers. Everyone... but me.
Today I ended up at the grocery store, on a HUGE game day. And because my husband and kids insisted, we were all dressed in KU apparel today. Finally I fit in. But I'm not sure I liked it. It was a bit strange. But at the same time there was this "Go KU" camaraderie among the shoppers.
An avid reader, sometimes writer, wife, mom, homeschooler, baker of yummy treats. I grew up in California, jumped around the United States (Kansas, Virginia, Ohio) and somehow ended up in Beijing China.
