First of all, why did I think it would be okay to purchase this for breakfast? They're disgusting. I poured my entire bowl (sans milk because I hate milk) back into the box after eating about 3 puffs. Ick.
We arrived after the first inning was over and the Sox had already scored 5 runs, one being a homerun. And that's where the scoring ended as the Twins proceeded to kick their butts the rest of the night.
Samantha brought us each a Sox t-shirt, but mine is currently in transit from VS. She's super thoughtful.
1. Sitting next to a woman whose name was Antoinette who referred to herself multiple times by Antonette. She took all the French out of her name. We talked the majority of the game. Turns out it was her birthday. And to prove it, she whipped out her license to show me. Yep, 7-8-66. She also lives in Oak Park. I seriously don't know what possesses someone to whip out your driver's license to show a complete stranger, but apparently I don't look too threatening.
2. Someone in the rows in front of us expelled not one, but two massively disgusting burps post-hot dog consumption. People, this is no joke. I seriously thought there was a hot dog stand around me or that someone was eating a fresh hot dog. The whiffs were beyond paralyzing. I could practically taste the sauerkraut, grilled onions, and relish. We all joked that we probably inhaled at least a few calories from their burp alone. Want to vomit? It might be worse than smelling feces. I'm not kidding. And being a vegetarian made that all the more pleasant. Speaking of hot dog, I was watching David Letterman last night and they were featuring new toys/gadgets. One of the new gadgets was a hot dog slicer that turns hot dogs into little people. What. in. the. heck?
Then next day, after a stop at Steak n' Shake (per SIL request), we headed to that same waterpark I took my friend Alison a couple weeks ago. What isn't better than paying $8 to go down waterslides and lounge in a lazy river all day? My husband's burn tells me that 5 hours was too long to go without re-applying sunscreen, but otherwise it was a great day. The day ended with Chicago deep dish and 3 happily stuffed people.
Sister and brother doing the Wilson wave.we'd visited while living in Europe.
- Went to church
- Explored Ikea for something I want but couldn't find there
- Walked Downtown Naperville
- Barbecued steak and veggie kabobs & ate with potato salad, wild rice, and corn on the cob
- Ate at one of my favorite Mediterranean restaurants
- Experienced a Derecho storm and the worst power outage Chicago has ever seen! In our area alone, we saw at least 50 trees either completed pulled from the ground or split. Some people are still without power, but we didn't lose it, thankfully. We live in the red regions, of course.
