One of the benefits of having Trustees at the school is that they give out “goodies” from time to time. Literally like the rich giving to the poor. I benefited from this hand-out on Monday night, when I went with two coworkers to see the Sox play. In the Pavilion section box seats. It’s basically where the fancy-fancy people sit….and me, when given a ticket. You can enjoy the air conditioning in the restaurant/bar area, which still has a beautiful shot of the field, plus a million flat screens to give you detail. When you’re ready to sit down, you go out onto the box seats which place you just high enough above the game that you feel like you are controlling them with your fingers, like puppets :) Yes, I felt like royalty. The only downside is that you can’t bring mixed drinks out there. Apparently hard alcohol and sports fans aren’t always the best combination. So of course that just meant that I snuck mine out. Hey, I’m gonna have my rum and cokes and ain’t nobody stopping me.
I stopped by the Post Office this morning to pick-up a package from Gummy; my long-awaited Finger Rolls have arrived! Up in Hudson Falls, there is a place that has amazing rolls. And by amazing I mean buttery and fatty and delicious. Gummy sent me some for my birthday last year (score!) and because of my move, waited until I got to Boston to send me my batch for this year. There are about 15 of them and I’m guessing they will last no longer than three hours. Kidding. At least six.
