My iPod Has Issues – Bonfire of the Tweens

25 May

Last night, we joined our neighbors in hosting a “School’s Out for Summer” party for a bunch of 6th graders. They played games in our yard before going to the other house to eat burgers and S’mores. We grilled the burgers, and the neighbors provided the fire pit.image-26

It was fun, but I am worn out.

Two girls spent the night with my stepdaughter. They are still asleep, and my wife is cooking breakfast. The smells of bacon and pancakes are snaking their way through the house.

Since it is Memorial Day weekend, I put on my 7th Cavalry t-shirt and sat down to write a post-party, pre-Memorial Day post. However, my mind is as tired as my body. With that in mind, I am going back to the old faithful. Yep, it is time to dig into my iPod and see what it happening. I hope the iPod is not as tired as I am.

Shuffle it up.

    Excuse my ignorance – what are S’mores?

      They are marshmallows roasted over a fire. Then, they are put on a graham cracker along with some chocolate. A lot of people like them. Honestly, they are not my favorite.

    Johnny’s in the basement
    Mixing up the medicine
    I’m on the pavement …

    Look out kid
    It’s somethin’ you did
    God knows when
    But you’re doin’ it again …
