now its not. And it isn’t b/c I keep getting older…I kinda like that. Its because my birthday is on July 4th and EVERYTHING is closed!!!!!!!! When I was a kid…that was cool….no school EVER on your birthday…..everyone came over for a BBQ…you watched your Dad and Uncles get drunk and set of fireworks. But that holds no appeal for me now. Or…you would go to “The Lake” and God knows that is NOT an option for me. I’ll pass on an overly crowded, disgustingly polluted, oil slicked man made lake.
All I want is a nice dinner…bottle of wine…maybe a few good beers….but NOOOOOOOO…..it’s America’s birthday too and we close everything down! Stupid. Stupid Stupid. I don’t want a backyard BBQ….jam packed with over cooked meat and pedestrian side dishes….I want to inhale a tasting menu at one of my favorite spots. Enjoy being served in a beautiful restaurant. This will not come to pass. Guess I’ll have to celebrate on Thursday.
pity party for one.
