Calling an Audible - Pajama Day

(Comments are back.  Something happened that disabled the embedded comment box, but everything's reset and it looks like they're working again.  Email me if anyone's still having trouble with them.)

For those of you who don't speak football, let me explain.  An audible is a last minute change of play called by the quarterback.  It happens when the team lines up, ready to begin the next play, and the quarterback takes a look at how the defense is lined up against them.  Sometimes, he just doesn't like what he sees.  He calls an audible, meaning he calls out a series of phrases indicating to his team that they are going to run a different play than they had originally planned. (There's your lagniappe of the day.)

Some mornings, I too wake up, and I just don't like what I see lined up against me.

We planned to go to the library for a concert with a blues/jazz/funk group we had seen on the kids' calendar.  I really wanted to go, we know one of the guys in the group and wanted to see him play, and I'm feeling a little guilt about not getting out of the house for it.  Still, I didn't like what I saw.  We're all tired, we've had some rough days this week, and everyone's got a serious case of the "don't wants."  So, mama's calling an audible.

Pajama Day it is.
