Time off

Like father….
Like mother…

Due to the insane amount of hours I’ve put in at work these past several weeks, I’ve finally taken some time to grab a few hours out of the office.  On Wednesday, I spent the most perfect late-afternoon, ever, riding my unicycle and relaxing in the grass at a somewhat-ghetto park – after I sat in the car and listened to some Josh Kelley, of course.  Yes, I unicycled in front of complete strangers who were definitely judging me, but I tell ya – it was fun!  Laying around in the grass was the best part… short-lived, and I’ll probably need eyeball replacements in 15 years, but I’m okay with it.  And I intend on doing it again… like, next week.

I’m looking forward to some more rewarding afternoons this coming week as I’m planning on taking a couple half-days.  As much as I’d love to say they will be productive, I have a feeling that, if the weather is as nice as it was on Wednesday, I’m going to end up sitting on a patio somewhere sipping on a margarita, reading People, and then writing in my journal.  But maybe, just maybe, I’ll go on a hike, sip a homemade margarita out of a thermos, read People at the top of the mountain, and then write in my journal while overlooking East Tennessee.  That’s productive, right?

Back to the main issue at hand… I unicycle… in public.  So what?  Circus freaks love me.
