Atlanta Memorial Day

When you enter the weekend with almost no concrete plans but you end up with birthday drinks at Skylounge, your morning park walk with Dr. P. preparing to benevolently take over the world, grill and whisky and freshly picked fruit at a friend's house, the Champion's League final, a hike in Sweetwater Creek Park, pizza on the patio, jazz fest at Piedmont Park, grilling again and mainly learning how to grill on the deck like a proper American and then just please let me go home and eat my home made cocoa ice cream.

From tyranny to newfound democracy
With help from young Socrates,
old Aeschylus, and Pericles
Unveiling the Marathon Conspiracy

You only complain about my hair but that's legitimate.

UPDATE:
The afore-mentioned mother'
s reaction to my blog post:
Motherly Love level: Expert.
