…was, uh, interesting. Pops showed up with The Jesus Freak (who asks all men to accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior before agreeing to go out with them) as his date; The Old-Timer’s girlfriend was revealed to be The Meek Mom (a TOTAL surprise); Uncle Eddie brought The Crazy Chick as his date (what?!?!); and The Seaman and The Sassy Blonde — at various points throughout the evening — had their legs wrapped around each other, were hugging and nuzzling, and generally seemed to be more than just friends. Meanwhile, I made very little progress with The Tan Man, other than we have tentative plans to — eventually, at some indeterminate time — visit the Graceland Cemetery (yes, I know, how romantic…) and take in the Burnham exhibit at the Art Institute. And, of course, kayaking tomorrow. If it doesn’t rain. Which means it totally will. Sigh.
