An Uncooperative Reality

Oh Amazon Instant. It’s far too easy to buy season passes and sit back to let the Adventure Time episodes roll over us. Seems to be my current coping mechanism, to deal with the seasonal allergies that threaten to DESTROY ME. And my son is just down with some chill down time, after a hectic summer of camp and vacations. Moving his annual trip to North Carolina up a week this year seems to have done the trick. This was his first visit with his grandparents that did not involve A HURRICANE. But now that he’s home there is a hurricane in the area.

Today we have five…things. I’ll let you insert your own adjective.

Last night the lad and I decided, on a whim, to have dinner at the Minnesota State Fair. There’s a free park & ride stop not far from home and it didn’t take long to get there. But the boyfriend was still at work far far away and couldn’t join us so I didn’t have anyone to split food stuffs with. Parker is so picky he stuck to his basics - corn on the cob, onion rings, sno-cone, and the like. I got full at my first stop. Curse you Giggles’ Campfire Grill! I didn’t even have any cheese curds. Hoping to return sometime this weekend, and get to the Luminarium, among other things. I was pleased that we did make it to the 4-H Llama Costume Contest though. And not at all surprised by the number of friends and acquaintances I ran into there. Like-minded oddballs.
