I Was Thinking About Something Else

That pretty much sums up my life nowadays. I will be doing something, walking into a room or driving, and I will go askew. Someone will inevitably ask at that same moment, "What are you doing?". Which will confuse me and I can only respond, "Yeah, well...I was thinking about something else".

installment #59

A friend from Cleveland, OH came by last week, staying with us for a few days. We had a good visit, then Thursday we all headed north to the Boston area for further vacation activities. Friday we all headed from our lovely accommodations in Waltham, MA to Freeport, ME, in search of LL Bean (no relation), the most awesome store on the face of the Earth. Open 24/7 and all their stuff is 100% guaranteed (and they do back up that claim). Amongst other goodies we purchased 4 very cool sleeping bags (maybe we’ll go camping someday!). I personally did the very manly thing and scoped out all the hunting and fishing equipment imparting all the appropriate ooh’s, aah’s, and grunting noises of satisfaction that one should make in the presence of most excellent wilderness gear. Very tired, we left the most awesome store on the face of the Earth at about 11pm (I really wanted to crash in the van for awhile to get a second wind and go back in because it is, the most awesome store on the face of the Earth, but it was apparently not meant to be). We were hungry as well, and I don’t know about the rest of the country but Maine would appear to close down at dusk, roll up the sidewalks as it were. We figured Friday night, hey, something’s gotta be open. Well, it turned out to be Wendy’s (yeah!), but only the drive-up window, the restaurant part closes at 10pm. Can Maine(ian’s)(?) party or what! So we strapped on the old feed bags and downed as much Wendy’s as we could and headed back to Massachusetts. Saturday took us to Fanueil Hall/Quincy Market, and the ever amazing Museum of Science. The Spin Doctor’s were doing a free concert in the City Hall Plaza, which was very cool.
Sunday was time for a visit to the cool Boston relatives, and then on to home in the Nutmeg State. It is so embarrassing being the Nutmeg State. It’s like when all the cool football team names are taken and you wind up with The Beavers!, or The Chipmunks! Dumb Nutmeg.
