It's not about the house.

I Fwep Wate!

Well, not really late, but until the alarm went off at 6:39 (I swear I set it for 7:00, I don't know what's going on with that). So I don't have time for a proper post. Here's a rundown:

1. We're not in Indiana this morning like I said we'd be. We're in Chicago. I'm wearing my Patriots jersey anyway, because I still haven't forgiven them for the @$#%$! "Superbowl Shuffle." Which is still really stupid, by the way.

2. You're right, Green Fairy, it is windy out there -- with actual, meteorological gusts of air, and not just a bunch of blowhards mouthing off. It's also forty degrees colder than it was in Nevada yesterday, which One Friend believes makes it actually cold. One Friend doesn't know from cold, however. She will learn.

3. Speaking of which, this is at least the third time I've been to Chicago, but the first it's been warmer than 0 degrees while I was here. I'm excited to be able to stand on Lake Shore Drive for longer than thirty seconds without my fingers dropping off and clinking to the pavement.

4. We're doing aquarium and zoo today. It's what we do if we have time wherever we go, because it's what we both wanted to be when we grew up. One Friend wanted to swim with the fishes, and I wanted to speak sign language with gorillas. Dreams die, what can I say? But at nearly forty years of age, we're still pressing our noses 'gainst the glass. That's got to count for something. Right?

5. If we have time and energy afterwards, we're going to the Best Bar Ever. Whether we go there or not, I'll tell you the story of how I learned about that fabulous place next time I post.

Happy Draft Day!

I've been enjoying reading about your trip. Watch out, though - the last time I was at a zoo, a hippo (or was it a rhino?) peed on me. And I was forced to mention it here because your post said not one thing about natural bodily functions, and so I had to mention something to make up for it.

Drive safe and have fun!
