    Tags: chile pants, leg room, tahoe travels   

    So this week I attended an ass-kicking wedding on Lake Tahoe.  During my cross-country travels, I encountered this guy in the Salt Lake City airport:

    Chile pants.

     

    I was also fortunate enough to be on a Boeing 737 flight that had approximately 27 passengers, affording me the ability to do this:

    It’s not often one gets to flail one’s legs aboard an aircraft.

    Tags: , , stink   

    Yesterday I was running on the treadmill at the gym in my apartment building. There’s a bathroom in there, which is occasionally used by people hanging out in the courtyard. One such man came in while I was running and went into the bathroom for a pretty long time (I ran 3/4 of a mile while he was in there). When he came out, the smell alerted me to what he was doing. I sprinted the final 1/4 mile of my workout so I could get the hell outta there. ~CQH

    Tags: 4th of July, chairs, hot pursuit, parade   

    Yesterday our town’s annual 4th of July parade passed in front of our house.  In order to ensure prime parade-watching real estate, Dad put three plastic chairs and two canvas folding chairs in the shade of the tree in our front yard around 8am.  By 9:15am, they had been stolen.  Never in the 28 years that we have lived along the parade route have our chairs been stolen, so we weren’t going to let this slide.  Brother alerted us as he thought he saw them quote “in front of the ugly houses” so Dad and I, needing no further explanation, walked down toward the ugly houses to steal them back. On our walk, Dad said we were “in the middle of a hot pursuit,” a classic Smokey and the Bandit reference.  But alas, the spotted chairs were not ours.  And there was a geriatric woman sitting in one, so we’d have to tip her out to get them back anyway.  Happy 4th everyone! ~AKH

        Yes! We didn’t tell you that? Must’ve been preoccupied with handing out menus.
