Started the day talking myself outta one parking ticket but not the other. Stupid parking/driving rules.

Heard that before Brooklyn became parta NYC in 1898, it was like the 11th largest city in the nation or somethin like that.

Gotta believe it cause I got crazy lost out there today. Ended up on Brighton Beach where every street seems to be named Brighton.

This empty parking spot came up on my left so I figured it was a sign and pulled in.

Stepped out and stood on the beach looking at the blue sky. Thought to myself that my city’s really got it all. Snapped a coupla pics and slid back into my car for 90 minutes of traffic to go 19 miles. My day got better brightened after that.

Rushed home to spend my night with my girl for the first time in a while. Not exactly as I hoped.

Check that. NYC’s got it all cept for reasonable driving and parking. Sides that, we got it all.

Him
: This is different, I really like her.
Me: You always say that, and you always really like them.
Him: Come on, this’s different. Few people ever do what we did. (pause) OK, you did but besides you…
Me: Everybody thinks their thing’s special. Maybe it is, but give it time to find out.

There’re plentya times people think something’s something, but turns out to be a whole lotta nuthin.

  1. Completely unrelated to your post, but I just came back from a BBQ to which I brought a huge vat of chili made off of your recipe. It was a huge hit. Thanks for being the source of my cooking street cred.

  2. This is so funny, but I went to Okotoks the other day on a quest for a real british high tea. Not quite as lovely as seeing the ocean…but a trip somewhere new nonetheless.

  3. Leece – that is so awesome! This comment had me happy all weekend. I'm so glad that you liked it and that it was a hit. Let me know if you do it again!Alana – it's always good to make a trip of any sort, I think, so long as it's a new experience. I liked seeing the ocean, even if it was only for a little bit.
