We were flying to SoCal for my step- brother’s wedding. We were late and had to run through the entire terminal. Devin stops 100 feet short of the gate and grabs his crotch: “I have to go potty!” he screams at the top of his lungs. I looked at my watch. The flight was scheduled for 6:20. It was 6:18. I yelled across the terminal: “Run, Devin, Run! You can go potty on the plane!” People began to stare. Devin didn’t budge. In the end, we made it. Southwest rocks! they waited for us!
I must say that public transportation in Colorado doesn’t fuck around.
After we got off our flight in Denver, we had to take a train from the gate to baggage claim. As the train approached the station a little guitar strum over the loudspeaker announced it’s arrival. A pleasant recorded voice then told of the train’s destination. We shuffled inside, and some musical chimes sounded followed by the same pleasant voice announcing the train’s departure: “Please step away from the doors” Someone on the train next to us was rushing to beat the closing doors, and they slammed shut on the luggage trailing behind her. The doors on our car shuttered and then flew open. The same voice came blasting over the loadspeaker, this time sounding a little perturbed: “YOU ARE DELAYING THE DEPARTURE OF THIS TRAIN!”
So, we’re in Colorado – Devin’s really psyched to see snow for the first time! We must’ve looked like idiots playing in the snow outside Applebee’s.
We got to see Jenny and Alan and the famous Rocky Mountain Pug – Baxter. They’re doing well and really like Colorado.
Devin discovered his kegel muscles and found that he has control over one more appendage. He has fun making it go up and down and up and down.
I’ll post some photos of us in the snow as soon as we get back.
I’m in Hawaii right now with the family. I haven’t had much time to work on ridiculousrims.com becuase I’ve been tweaking out on the MySpace page. I finally got the MySpace page working right, so now I can chill and enjoy this wonderful vacation. We’ve been taking lots of photos, and I posted one in the photo gallery – a gorgeous panorama shot of Waikiki beach. I’ll post many more once we get home.
It’s 105 outside in the shade of our porch, and 93 in the house. So we’re going to Hawaii to escape the heat, where it’s currently a nice 78 degrees – Aloha Vallejo!
