I’ve only had two glasses of wine tonight… I should wait. I’m pretty sure I’m much funnier after more than two glasses of wine. Or 3 or 4 margaritas.
Things I learned while on travel in San Diego:
– It is much more fun to be on shore than on the submarine (sorry Ryan).
– It is much more expensive to be on shore than on the submarine (you’re welcome, Ryan).
– If you are going to go to old town with the girls and chaperone them while dress shopping, make sure to not be the designated driver.
– It is not a difficult goal to complain less than C (again some names changed to protect the not so innocent) while chaperoning the girls dress shopping in old town – even if you are the designated driver. An iPhone is good for that.
– To get to the Gaslamp Hilton from 5th street, you do NOT walk to the end of the street (thanks to the many times S pointed that out – and no I didn’t learn that while I was there).
– Do not argue with S if she is giving directions. She is almost always right. And if she is not, it still isn’t worth arguing.
– I talk a lot when I drink. Ok. Not a new lesson learned.
– B has the funniest stories (see part 1 of Stories from the road).
– Bumper cars are really for the 8 year old kids.
– The Gaslamp Strip Club is, well, a steak place.
– That C’s version of the golden rule is something like, “Don’t pee in the cup you drink from.” I’m not sure where he went to Sunday school.
– If you think you should have Pi tattooed on your arm, you really did study too much math at college.
– The pack a day smoker doesn’t think it is as funny as the rest of us whenever you turn a corner on the trail and see another long up hill. Then again, we only thought it was funny because of the smoker.
– I do not look good in a large sombrero with “Mexico” written on the brim.
– “Hanna” is a strange movie.
– San Diego is still cheaper than San Francisco. And no, that story doesn’t need to be told.
– There is a store in Old Town that sells voodoo dolls. Pretty cool.
I’m sure I have forgotten a few. I’ll just have to blame it on being old and not having such a good memory. Or just too many margaritas. I will leave it to the kids to add anything I missed.
