Sometimes we need to feel like we're normal Americans. Monday was our day to do that. We fixed some popcorn, hot dogs, chips, and ice cream sundaes, and we watched the opening day baseball game between the Reds and Cardinals on TV. Since JJ's a Cardinals fan and I'm a Reds fan (when I care about baseball, which is rare - i.e. opening day and if the Reds make the playoffs, or during the game I'm attending), the game was a perfect set-up to feel like we were back at home. Sadly the Cardinals drummed the Reds, but we still had fun with it!
