(Long rambling narrative to follow, if of no particular interest to you
feel free to go straight to the comment box and say,
"Wow, what a great T-shirt Logo!")
I left casa de Logophilia Wednesday afternoon and although we experienced a small hitch
(I had a stow-away and had to turn around almost a mile down the road)
but after returning Thing Two, somewhat dejectedly, to his home, I headed off to meet Susie.
I arrived without having gotten ahold of her on her cell (she doesn't turn it on) but had the good fortune of seeing Susie and Mr. Ratburn with Lil Rita crossing a street right in front of me!
I honked and waved, but Susie took off running across the road mistaking me for a crazy driver,
mistaking me for a crazy driver wanting her to go away.
Anyway, we got ourselves together and I got to meet the adorable Little Rita and Mr. Ratburn is as fab as you might have imagined. We hung out for a while and then went to dinner at an Indian place
(What?? Susie at an Indian place!! No WAY!!)
Really, it's all true.
Then we wandered through Pike and fondled the pig.
We went down to the waterfront, where Lil Rita felt the need for an ice cream cone.
Susie was feeling done on the whole food issue.
We sat and enjoyed a gorgeous Seattle sunset.After that, we did a little bit of sightseeing on our way back to the hotel.
Then, after tucking the family in, Susie and I hit the town.
She kept me out till 1:30 in the morning and THEN...
I kid you not,
she had the GALL,
the unmitigated nerve(!!)
to wake me up at 5:59 AM!!!!
She dragged me out of the hotel and forced me to walk the streets of Seattle to have coffee and a pastry with some Idiot we know.
Then, as if that were not bad enough, she took a pic of me like that!!S' ok, once I had a double macchiato I was even willing to smile for a picture. We ditched the Idiot for a while and went and did touristy things
(although I have my limits, I would NOT Ride the Ducks with them).
It was a great day, and a good time had by all.
