is what Jeff and I were doing last night. We went to see one of my favorite bands at Emo’s in Austin for our anniversary. Jeff has a Minnesota connection and has met the bassist. Of all my times going to Ben Kweller shows, who’d have thought one day I’d be on the will call list…. well technically JEFF was on the list and I had to pay…. but we are ONE right?
We definitely felt like old folks amidst the sea of X-marked hands… incredibly so as Jeff looked down and noticed ear infection drainage on his sleeve…. but I loved the whole night. I loved the music so loud that I feel it in my chest and singing out all the words at the top my lungs…. I loved everyone else being just as sweaty as I am…. but most of all I loved the guy standing beside me…. especially while catching the water bottle for me thrown from the stage (as I am crouched on the floor covering my head.)
I wonder how long we’ll have the remnants of ‘wrath?’ on our arms?
Belated father’s day…
I was told to spend under 20 dollars on father’s day this year… so I got Jeff and Lily some t-shirts shipped in from his alma mater in Wisconsin. He puts up with all the burnt orange incredibly well… so I thought I’d help him show a little falcon pride.
While we were out yesterday… we picked up this thing to make Lily look as cool as possible while swimming. Poor kid.
