What I didn’t do last night
Fulfilling a lifelong dream, last night we had ticket to the Monster Trucks show. Massive, noisy, purpose-built behemoth racing around and crushing junk cars, trucks, trailer and even airplanes. Redneck heaven by the bay, and we had good seats.

I would have gone. Gail, not so much. SR, that Florida softened sissy who cries when the house drops under 75, was visibly quaking at the thought of being outside where it was cold enough to see your breath.
