I would like to extend my personal thank you for all who came out to make this weekend particularly badass. RVA is especially sassy right now and I love it. Blame it on the warmer weather, the alcohol or the rain, just don’t blame me. Here are the highlights of the Little Weekend that Could:
1-I did not trip and fall one time. I mean! This in and of itself is an accomplishment. Plus also, almost all of my scrapes from last weekend’s trips and spills are almost completely healed. I was particularly worried about this considering Barista was out of town gambling, but as it turns out, I was just fine!
2-Friday night shenanigans. From what I recall, I had a great time. I always judge the level of fun I had the night prior by the state of dress in the morning:
Waking up in all of the clothes you wore the night prior intensely spooning two dogs = You had a really good time last night.
Waking up in your pjs intensely spooning two dogs = You really should have stepped it up a notch. Better luck next time.
3- Not attending the Chili Cook-off. This may be the grossest event Richmond has to offer. Although the people watching is top-notch, the idea of paying money to eat the nastiest food ever is unappealing to say the least. No thank you. I was busy napping and dreaming Charlie Sheen was hitting on me and that my car could magically turn into a scooter. Whee!
4-Dance parties. I won’t lie, I like shakin’ what my mama gave. As such, when the opportunity presents itself to dance, dance, dance I am there. Cous Cous provided the perfect venue on Saturday evening for a good, old-fashioned dance party. Good job, everyone. Well done.
5-Traveling on foot! Ever since the weather warmed up, I’ve taken to caminar a pie when going out for the evening. Side note: Today’s Spanish 101 lesson brought to you by Corona. It’s Mexican for beer! Anywhoos, I live close enough to most watering holes that it takes longer to drive and find a parking spot than hoofing it. Besides getting a little bit of extra fitness, walking lends itself to more opportunities for adventures. Like climbing monuments. And impromptu skipping. Ya know, the finer things in life.
