Just took Nathan to the dog park and I want to try, try, to describe the sights and sounds we witnessed. I am a pretty easy going person, and have a hard time holding back laughter - even if it is right in front of someone's face. What a worthwhile trip outside though. Here goes:
1st - There was a softball practice going on - not the Giants - but the girl batting was wearing a long denim skirt. Actually, there were several girls wearing denim skirts, I think it might be a Jewish thing or something like that. Or Amish? I'm not sure.
2nd - There's a kid who has something wrong with him - seriously - and walks his dog named Diesel. Only thing is, this kid yells the entire time - at his dog, at other dogs, and people. Kind of sad/funny at the same time. There was a baseball game going on on the field, and he randomly shouted out "Nice catch!" and then almost simultaneously shouted "DROP IT!" to a dog that was not his (he wanted someone else's dog to drop a ball that belonged to the dog). Then he asked me if I needed to know the time and shoved his watch in my face. I thanked him and we left.
3rd - I missed the photo op of a lifetime. I saw Jimmy Johnson walking on the sidewalk and just froze. Oh wait, it was a 70-something year old woman who had the exact same hair-do. Like I'm not even kidding - it was scary.
4th - We were walking down the ramp walkway to our building and out comes this seven-year-old girls announcing to everyone walking past "My big boobies!" as she held her hands next to her ribs. I laughed immediately without restraint. Her mom was a foreign-looking woman, who had on a lot of makeup, but was probably good looking - 10 years ago - prior to her enhancements. Maybe she was a mail-order type, who knows.
Gotta get ready to go to dinner. I told Jesse and Julia we'd pick them up at 6:30. Driving to dinner - Cilantro - Columbus and 83rd. Some southwestern cuisine - they got real good guacamole (almost as good as mine). I figure it'd be better to drive in case anything happens - like Baby D wanting to make an early appearance.
Shower time, to wash my big boobies!
