Hitting the Keys Again

It's been a quiet few weeks . . .

Three weeks ago, I flew down to Florida to visit my parents for the weekend.  It was nearly more excitement than I could handle.  When I have more time, I'll post a blow-by-blow of the weekend, including a crazy 40-minute walk through a local nature preserve which included an alligator sighting and loads of turtles and birds.      

The following week, I organized my buddy's bachelor party here in D.C. (he's getting married the 19th).  It was two straight days of heavy drinking and debauchery.  I made a dinner reservation for 10 "gentlemen" Saturday night at Fogo de Chao.  If you've never been, it's basically all you can eat meat.  It seemed like an appropriate place for a bachelor party dinner.  Plus, there's nothing like good old fashion homosexual innuendo at a bachelor party, and I was looking forward to getting tanked and demanding the waiter "fill that man's hole with meat!!!"  Friday night went smoothly -- just a couple gentlemen pounding 10 adult beverages and stumbling back to the Westin.  Saturday began early afternoon at a driving range in Virginia that served buckets of beer.  5 of us attended. Combined, we hit zero golf balls, and drank a thirty beers.  By dinner, when the rest of the party showed up, we had a substantial, double-digit head start.  I don't think I ever kicked my line on the waiter.  Instead, I just thought about it in my head and giggled to myself like fucken idiot.  Fast forward to 2:00 am, the core four of the wedding party finished the evening with class, in style, pounding 20 ounce drafts at a Buffalo Wild Wings and hitting a vaporizer right at the bar.  No one was arrested, and the wedding is still on, so I guess it was a success.   

Afterwards, I needed nearly a full week to recover.  

Which lead to last weekend.  After sleeping to 10:30 Saturday morning, I got dressed and headed out the door to get coffee, drop off dry cleaning, and go for a run down by the Potomac river.  However, after taking care of the first two items on my list, I determined it was too "breezy" to run.  Yes, too breezy...  So, I went home and watched 12 hours of baseball instead.   Sunday was more of the same.  Hell, I even had tickets to the Nats-Braves game at 1:35, but couldn't motivate to head to the park, so I ended up watching the game from my couch.  

So, it's now Tuesday morning, 6:30 am, as I write this.  I'm feeling almost back to normal.  And not a minute too soon.  I've got a full month or so on tap.  I'm heading to AC this Friday . . . Next weekend is the aforementioned wedding . . . The following weekend I'm heading to Vegas for a quick trip to catch OAR play a three-night run at the Brooklyn Bowl . . . Which will be followed by a quick weekend trip to Denver the next weekend to catch the Mets series at Coors Field and visit my niece. 

YOLO, as the kids say . . .

    1. Yeah, "too breezy" was a good line, and "since 1990" just adds to it. "Combined, we hit zero golf balls, and drank thirty beers" isn't bad either... :)
