Jason often calls me a junkie. And rightly, so. I tend to have an addictive personality, and I know it. This time, I find myself involved in something that many others were addicted to, but I never understood why. I had known about NCAA March Madness and heard how husbands and boyfriends would disappear or be useless for the month of March. Then I learned through my supervisor how it worked. She got me to sign up for our company pool, and so I quickly filled my brackets and turned it in. And just like that, I was hooked! I found myself checking ESPN like my life depended on it. I even used my iPhone to check the scores! I’m not so sure it’s basketball I love, as much as I’m drawn to the potential of winning! It’s not so much the money, because we didn’t put much into it, but it is fun keeping track and talking (smack) to your coworkers and friends about it. I think it also builds a sense of camaraderie.
As I’m sitting here tallying my scores, Jason smiles and calls me a junkie again. Oh well, I gotta go check the scores again. Go UConn! Who’s your pick?
