An Evening With The Merry Widow


In all of our brokedom Chris and I have been doing an awful lot of front yard sittin'. Like a couple of old fogeys, we drag chairs out into the front yard, sip on some yummmy hot tea, and watch the neighborhood go by...not something that I'd consider to be all that exciting to anyone not as uber-goofy as us. But maybe I'm wrong...just maybe we are trendsetters!

Yesterday, I sent an email to the Merry Widow and told her of our EXCITING evening plans and she jumped at the chance (color me surprised). I then read her blog about wanting to exercise more so we revised our plan to include a thrilling neighborhood bike ride prior to the front porch sittin'. MW made her way over, and we put our thrilling, super-cool, and uber-trendy plan into action. It went off without a hitch - bike ride to the grocery store, first sprinkles hit us on the way home, the downpour came just as we pulled into the garage, then watched the rain/thunder/lightening show from the garage with our tea. We escorted her home on our bikes and hung out at her place for a bit. Chris had Tang and I showed her how to play the traditional Mexican bass line on her bass guitar. Chris got cut by her ghetto cat (but he deserved it) and we rode home.

We had a farking blast.

So..the next time you're sitting around wondering what to do with your evening - try a bike ride and some hardcore front yard sittin'. It's the next big thing. Trust me... :-D

'Til next time!
