|Not real, but a Stunt Cranky|

Chipping, putting and hitting at the range for almost an hour in the 60 degree fall New Jersey heat was exhausting.
Mrs. C was back from a Zumba class and was puttering around the kitchen.
“I’m going downstairs to watch the game.”
It was a good game, Texas vs. Oklahoma. I root for Oklahoma as I spent the first 8 months of my life in Oklahoma. I don’t really remember the state very much, but I’ve never lived in Texas so…
Generally, Saturday afternoon watching college football is nap time. Mrs. C knows this well.
A little after the first quarter I drifted off. I had hit a dream three wood on the par 5 fourth hole when Mrs. C hollered.
Actually, it was more of a screech than a holler.
“WHAT?” I hollered back as I almost jumped out of my seat and missed a dream eagle putt.
“Before you fall asleep, take the laundry out of the dryer.”
“Are you kidding me? If I take the laundry out, I have to also fold it. That will take 15 minutes at least. Fifteen minutes will completely ruin any nap opportunity.”
“Well take it out after your nap!”
“Thanks to you, that ship has sailed!”
Actually, it turns out the ship was still at dock and I eventually enjoyed a wonderful nap. I woke up just in time to see Oklahoma take a knee and win their game.
I then took out the laundry and folded it.
It was a good day, and a good nap; but because of napus interruptus, I missed a dream eagle on the par 5 fourth.
