It has been almost 2 months since I chose a mascot of the day, and while I enjoyed the busy feeling of tax season, I am glad to be back, looking at the happiness of characters.
According to some of my recent dude contacts (aka Tinder creeps) my love of mascots and stuffed animals makes me ‘creepy’ and ‘weird.’ Yes, I am totally weird, but it’s not like these things kill. They are there solely for happiness. Like, there is so much stress and difficulty and bad in the world, so why not just add a little joy sometimes? But, my logic is not of a typical ideal, and therefore, I shall be single for the near future.
But singledom is not nearly as awful as the first 45 minutes of a romcom portrays. In fact, it is kind of amazing. Singledom means that I can go to baseball games with my friends anytime I want. And now that Columbia has an A team, the Fireflies, it is pretty much my favourite hangout spot. Baseball, booze, friends, and of course this cutie:
This is Mason, and I guess he is a chubby firefly. He lives at the stadium aka the Mason Jar, and is just freaking awesome. Mason might just be the best part of this Met’s minor league team, since the 500 record is not likely to last. Unless most of the games are at night, because the logo glows, and that might just be enough to throw some pitchers off.
Columbia’s pretty awesome, huh? Oh, still no? Okay, well, last Thursday, 10,000 people thought differently, so booyah. So let’s glow fireflies! WOOO!
Bonus: I got a photo with the cutie! How awesome is that?!?!?!
