Time passes and the distance between us grows.
How I’ve missed you all. As you know, the bulk of my time has been involved in work and will continue to be so for a couple more weeks.
So, here is a break, a breather. A chance to tell you a little bit about what has been happening.
GF and I discovered a miniature golf course (putt-putt) near a suburban shopping center. The putt-putt course was within an establishment also containing a driving range. (Who knew stoves could get licenses?*) I have never been to such a place before. I found it quite odd. Some patrons were carrying buckets containing ice and Corona beers and some patrons were sitting in a club house structure watching sporting events at a high volume (decibel-wise, not quantity-wise).
During our putt-putt adventure, GF scored a hole in one! Our trip included a visit to Johnny Rockets restaurant, in which I felt bad for the employees, all of whom had to dress as if they actually worked in a diner from the 1950s. Interesting to note- There was a painting on the wall of kids eating something from the restaurant. The kids were wearing baseball uniforms. One of the kids was African American, even though I doubt he would have been welcome at the diner in the 1950s. Thanks Johnny Rockets for erasing the past.
We ended the day by going to Macy’s. The Macy’s was creepy. Here is the bathroom, which was fine.
Stay tuned for an upcoming post in which I describe two different dancing experiences.
*Alternate joke A- Who knew an open region in which animals can graze could get licenses? Alternate joke B- Who knew a series of things in a line (especially mountains) could get licenses?
