This evening’s update on our trip will probably be the most boring, at least to you folks at home. You’re probably just getting settled in after a long day working, just hoping for a glimpse at what the world outside of your own has to offer. Sadly, though, I do not have any photos or videos to offer you today.
Today (and tomorrow, for that matter) has been the absolute essence of what this trip is all about: relaxing and spending time with Sarah.
Because of all the walking and hiking that we’ve been up to as of late, we decided that today would be a good day to give our legs a rest, and just stay in. We watched the rest of season three of Bojack Horseman, and a couple Louis C.K. stand-up specials. Then, we drove into Burnsville and picked up some more milk and some lettuce from the local Ingles for dinner tonight.
I’ve been doing my best to avoid as much of the news on the presidential debates as possible, but of course it’s inevitable. The thing that I’m completely flabbergasted by is that people are actually believing the theory that the bulge in the back of Hillary’s outfit was an earpiece or a “cough-prevention” device. Clearly these conspiracy theorists never even payed attention, and completely missed the lapel mics that both candidates were wearing to reinforce the podium mics, which are awful half the time, so let’s face it, wireless lav mics are the way to go, unless you want some poor guy holding a boom mic above them for the entire duration of the debate.
I’m not one for politics, especially the circus which is the presidential election, so I’m going to stay out of it further unless something completely ridiculous like this happens again.
Anyhow, back to the real world; tomorrow is Sarah and my third anniversary. We have a reservation at a (fairly) fancy restaurant for dinner. It will be another calm and relaxing day. We will probably go for a quick drive, and just spend some time reminiscing in the past five years of our relationship. I’ll probably have another wordy post for you tomorrow.
