Sometimes, I just like to feel pretty
You know, its not easy being Nick Saban. Sure, I just signed another big contract to coach some football. Sure, I love my new home in Alabama. But, you know what? Sometimes after the endless late night film sessions, grueling practices, ritual sacrifices, and recruiting trips, I just want to get away from it all, you know? Being a coach is great, but every now and again, I just need to feel like a man.
Not too many people know this about me, but lots of times, I like to do up the house real nice while Terry's asleep. Early in the mornings, I'll trudge in from a late night of breaking down personnel matchups, and the only thing I'll have on my mind is touching up the window treatments in our sitting parlor. Give those darlings a nice swiffering, make sure everything's "just so," and then I'll just sit back for a second and take it all in. Hell, half the time I'm just rearranging the furniture in my mind. We could really use more talking space opening up from the alcove, and I know she loves the robin's egg accents around the crown moldings, but I just think its all too brassy for my tastes. I would go with a nice, tasteful eggplant base with maybe the faintest tope piping. That would so bring out the subtle rose in the upholstery. Sigh.
At least I get my way in the kitchen. The range out back is great for entertaining, and it's so easy to clean, but I'll tell you, my favoritest little toy in the whole setup is my ravioli crimper. That thing can make a late night snack out of anything! Just now, I'm getting ready to turn in, and nothing helps me pore over the day's reports than using that doodad to make some apple turnovers. A little pastry, some nice fresh filling, a touch of anise for some snap, and wham, brown them up in no time. Gosh, if only it wasn't so cluttered in here...but that's another story. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get my eight hours.
