Rain drops keep fallin’ on my head…

Now ladies and gentlemen, this person is prepared:

The biggest umbrella in America

Wanted to take the 4:30pm train. Didn’t. Got to North Station a few minutes early for the 5:15pm train. Nice. Ugh, delayed. Sit down. Homeless man comes over to me. “MOVE THAT STUFF SO I CAN SIT DOWN.” Yes sir. Moved stuff. Got a whiff. He unfortunately reeked of urine. I didn’t enjoy it. I’m sure he didn’t either. Actually, maybe he didn’t mind – was having a lovely conversation with himself. Not breathing/smelling through my nose. Waiting for the train. Please come, I’m nervous. Getting anxious. Don’t want homeless man to yell at me again. Don’t want to get up and move, will look rude. Waiting. Waiting. Ding! ‘The 5:15 train is now boarding on track numbah 4.’ Thank you Jesus. Got a seat on the train, sat next to man with delicious smelling popcorn. Disliked him for it. Passed out, mouth open. Sleepily woke up in Andover. Walked to gym in rain. Somehow found motivation for my run tonight. Finished without collapsing. Success. Walked home in the rain. Kind of enjoyed it. Came home to surprise cookies Meg made for me. She’s the best. Some American Idol. Falling asleep as I blog. Finishing this post and going to snooze.

  • Need a reason to head to Waltham? Here you go, the Candied Bacon Ice Cream Sundae. Served up at Jake’s Dixie Roadhouse. It has a fried bacon chocolate chip cookie (wtf? I don’t even care, because it sounds so damn good), maple-syrup-candied Vermont bacon ice cream, a BIG chocolate chip cookie, chocolate covered bacon bits on top as well as a drizzling of bacon vodka chocolate syrup, which can also be substituted with regular chocolate syrup. Sounds like my dream come true.
