Yesterday, Grey, Ollie and I headed to the Baltimore Ravens Stadium for the Navy/Maryland football game. I must say, pregnant tailgating is a much different beast than the non-prego kind. Being with-child at a tailgate, I found myself facing a serious dilemma. To drink lots of liquid or not to drink lots of liquid??? I mean, I’m constantly thirsty (probably since I’m always so darn hot), but also have to pee every two seconds as little fetus feet are kicking me in the bladder. So, I’m left to decide whether to dehydrate myself on purpose to save my swollen sausage feet the long walk to the disgusting port-o-potty, or just drink up and deal with the trek.
However, with Cruzin Cooler, my problems are solved! If you haven’t seen them before, the Cruzin Coolers are iceboxes with wheels. It’s like a motorscooter that you can store a few cases of beer in. So yesterday at the game, perched atop Cruzin Cooler, I could not only keep beverages handy right under my ever-growing maternity booty, but also easily haul myself to the bathroom without having to walk. It’s the best invention since the lightbulb!
In fact, the highlight of my day at the tailgate was driving Grey’s friend Bubba’s cooler around the parking lot. A pregnant girl on a ridable ice chest is just so wrong it’s actually right. Although it did make me a bit uncomfortable having strangers taking my picture and videotaping me (I’m sure if you search “pregnant lady” and “cooler-bike” on YouTube you’ll now see some crazy strangers’ amateur video of me), I loved scooting around the parking lot waving to people as if I was a human float. Does it get better than that?
