Like a Fairytale

Went to Toledo for J's brother's wedding. It was fun, sorta. I am always amazed by the Huge Retail Establishments (Meijer) of the midwest, and would love to spend hours browsing. The wedding itself was low-key, at country club that has clearly seen better days but still has gorgeous vistas next to the first tee. There was no "obey", no discussion of the duty to procreate, so I figure we got off easy with cold roasted potatoes, oversalted chicken and tasteless lasagna bites. (C and his 10-year-old cousin had kid's meals that made the grownup versions taste palatable, including steak fires so leathery that I could not steel myself to bite through one.)

C and all the other kids rocked out to 70s and 80s music on the dance floor. Now if only I had drunk enough to block out the conversations with the uncle who believes in intelligent design because he once smoked enough hash to have an out-of-body experience.

Oh, and the zoo!

I never found Meijer to be that different from Target except it had groceries.

True, but around here were don't have Target either. And good groceries are a big deal. Also, The Andersons, which I find hard to describe, but is even more along the same lines plus the tree department.

Just remember - make the first couple drinks fast ones.

But seriously, I'm so glad you can think of things like that as fun. There is nothing like a sense of fun to get one through all sorts of situations.
