Details, Details

One of the great, yet odd, things about living with your bestfriend is the glimpses into your own neurosis it provides. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like Ralph and I are the same person; nor are we one of those couples who’ve grown to behave alike; but we do, occasionally, approach situations in an eerily similar fashion. Case in point this afternoon. He’s on the phone with Amazon trying to sort out a mislabeled product he just received and totally confused the agent. Hell, I knew what he was talking about, and he almost managed to confuse me! Ralph’s side of the conversation went something like this:

Corn Pops

Ralph and I headed down to the beach the other day to celebrate Kevin’s birthday. We met up with the crew shortly after seven in the evening, and much to our dismay the birthday boy was already well on his way to needing a nap and a sandwich. Sure enough - true to form - not ninety minutes later Kevin went missing; he put himself to bed. Over the course of the next few hours, however, several more guests arrived. Each with the same eye-roll reaction to Kevin’s absenteeism. Before long the cocktail count reached the group’s tipping point for bad decisions and the next thing I knew Brendan and I were leading a parade down the beach to awaken the birthday boy.

Dream Date

Last Saturday Ralph and I decided to go to the Festival of Chocolate. We really had no idea what to expect, but what we found was better than even I could have imagined; we stumbled on to, what could only be described as, a teenage boy’s dream date. First, the festival took place at the Miami Auto Museum. So sprinkled amongst the booths of chocolatiers, was a very interesting collection of autos from classic and contemporary cinema. Candy and cars, already much more than we could ask for.
