This was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long time. It was just a lot of fun and a lot of awesome things…
Friday, I took a half day at work and then headed down to South Jersey to chill with a friend. I stopped by my parents’ house, like I always do when I’m down there, to say hi and break some news to them. What came out of this? Well, I found out that when my mom was pregnant with me, she was minutes away from having an abortion before my parents changed their mind. That was pretty interesting to find out. It sure makes you think though. For a second, I almost second guessed my pro-choice beliefs, but not quite.
I spent the night down there and woke up early on Saturday so we could take a day trip to Washington D.C. We decided to really pack the day full of stuff too. On the way down we stopped and had breakfast at a Sonic. None of us had ever been there before, but we’ve seen the commercials tons of times. For some reason, they advertise in places where they don’t actually have restaurants. The food was great. It was the best fast food I’ve ever had. I ate there at 10am and was completely satisfied for the entire day. I really didn’t need another meal after that. I had the breakfast burrito and hash browns. To drink, I had an apple cherry slushie which was pretty much the best drink I’ve ever had. And in addition to that, I got a soda, but I didn’t know what flavor I wanted so I asked the guy to surprise me. I figured he would have just given me a Coke with lime flavor or something simple, but nope, he concocted this crazy drink with about six different flavors in it. Excellent!
When we left Sonic we somehow managed to get lost in Delaware. How you get lost in a state that normally takes 15 minutes to drive though, I don’t know, but we did it. Eventually, we found our way out, which took us past Slaughter Rd., and made it to Washington D.C.
We parked pretty far away, but I don’t mind walking so it wasn’t too bad. We had only planned on going to the Air and Space museum, but we were able to get through it and see most of what we wanted pretty quickly so we went to the Natural History museum as well. Both were pretty awesome. I would have liked to take my time a little more and see some of the stuff that we skipped over, but we had planned to be on our way home by 5pm, so it was like a greatest hits version.
On the way back, we stopped at one of the 7-11s that they converted into a Kwik-E-Mart. Had I not had to pee so badly, I would have probably bought some stuff and enjoyed it a little more, but it was still pretty awesome.
Later that night, I went to another friend’s party which was chill and a lot of fun. In the morning, the same friend had some people over for breakfast which was eaten outside in the gayzebo and quite yummy. Then it was off to the radio station to get some work done.
All in all, it was good times with good people all weekend. I actually don’t care about the fact that tomorrow is Monday.
Anyway, check the slideshow. This whole post was really just made as an excuse to post the slideshow.
