Yesterday was a day of sitting and people watching in airports. In Minneapolis, we waited for our flight to Sioux Falls at a gate where people were boarding a plane to La Crosse , WI. For some reason, several of them were preoccupied with their phones and nearly missed the flight. Husband is a U of W grad, and I took delight teasing him about the strangely disoriented Badger passengers getting on the flight to Wisconsin. I suggested they were too drowsy from eating all that cheese. Husband joked that the Badger motto was “Don’t bother me, I’m watching the game”. I told him that my college motto rather loftily described me as an “informed person sent forth to influence the affairs of the world at the same time being dedicated to the Christian life.” Sometimes I think I would rather watch the game and eat cheese.
What motto from college or high school or family are you supposed to live up to? How are you doing with that?
