Sox

SoxGuess where we went today.

The socks and I spent a lovely afternoon at Fenway.  First a burger at Cornwall’s.  Yum!  John serves up one of the best burgers in Boston.  Then the a quick jaunt over the Pike and we sat in the bleachers to enjoy the game.  It was great, except for one thing.  The loud, obnoxious woman who was sitting behind us who would. not. shut.up. 

She talked and talked and talked and talked.  At a very high volume and punctuated each and every sentence with a high-pitched cackle.  Of course, everything she had to say was pointless and mundane, she wasn’t entertaining at all.  A few samples of her witty banter:

"TIMLIN!! (screamed at the top of her lungs) Was that loud enough for you? (to her 6 year old companion) Cackle cackle, cackle."

Loud Lady:  "Look, another white guy with a ‘fro!  Why do they wear their hair like that?"
Me:  "Umm, some people have very curly hair."
Loud Lady:  "But out to here? (gesturing.)
Me:  "Have you checked the humidity lately?"

Anyway, it was a great game and I had fun with a good friend.  I made a bit of progress on the socks too.  Finishing them by the end of the Tour de France, is going to take a few "Floyd Landis"  days of effort.  I’m not sure I have it in me.  Anyone else blown away by his ride today?
