Weekend Part 2

After a fantastic time at the concert we geared up for another event. The Lover's mom and stepdad were coming into town for the first time. It was actually the first time they have ever spent time at The Lover's home, we had no idea what to expect.

So I spent a majority of Friday afternoon cleaning every nook and cranny. Not a speck of dust to be found, towel out of place, or wrinkle in the comforter. Everything was perfect.

They arrived in the afternoon and we gave them a tour of the place. Allowing The Lover's dad, a contractor, to nit pick the minute details of the building. After lots of ooh's and ahh's we headed down to Burger Bar for lunch. It was fantastically greasy.

We wandered around downtown for a little bit before heading off to the main event. Yep, we went to watch the drag races. Now, racing isn't really my thing but I'd never been and it's apparently a huge deal here so I decided to give it a chance.

It'll most likely be the first and last time I go. It wasn't horrible but it was definitely a different environment. One full of rednecks wearing shirts like these;

while drinking cheap beer with big ear phones on and most likely with the Mullet or rockin 80's band hair. A place where ear plugs are a necessity and getting smoke shoved in your face is a guarantee. Even when we went into the Pit where the cars go to get fixed up between races we had times where they would decide to turn on the engine and make it spew a puff of smoke onto the crowd so they can cry as they run for oxygen.

I'm pretty sure that's what caused my severe allergy attack. We went Friday and Saturday spending at least 5 hours each. By the time we left Saturday evening I had inflamed, itchy, red eyes, congestion, and a case of the sneezes. I was near comatose and no medicine in the world could fix me. I ultimately passed on going to the race on Sunday and I'm glad.

Sunburnt and worn out we had a good weekend. Things went smoothly, I got a lot of information I needed for my super secret project, and had several photo ops. The Lover's parents are already talking about making another trip in the not so soon future.

Now it's on to bigger things!

What's wrong with the shirt? I know, you're rolling your eyes at me now, am I right? haha
