And you should be, too.
Vacation in Chi-town means one thing to me:
THE DAIRY QUEEN BLIZZARD.
I'm off to have another one. Happy holiday!
MY QUEST TO QUALIFY NOT JUST FOR THE OLYMPIC TRIALS BUT FOR THE 2016 OLYMPICS IN THE MARATHON (to do this I will need to halve my marathon time)
On I went, out of the wood, passing the man leading without knowing I was going to do so. Flip-flap, flip-flap, jog-trot, jog-trot, curnchslap-crunchslap, across the middle of a broad field again, rhythmically running in my greyhound effortless fashion, knowing I had won the race though it wasn't half over, won it if I wanted it, could go on for ten or fifteen or twenty miles if I had to and drop dead at the finish of it, which would be the same, in the end, as living an honest life like the governor wanted me to. -Alan Sillitoe, "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner"

We took our kids to DQ for the first time Saturday. We ate outside at the tables. It was awesome and inspired by your online blizzard eating!ReplyDelete
The FIRST time?!? Wow!!! I feel like I should turn you into DCFS for child neglect! :)ReplyDelete
Of course I'm completely kidding. In reality you deserve an award for healthy parenting. I hope they loved it! ...but not too much, so they don't become addicts like me.
