Toilet Paper Toss!
We lasted maybe 2 minutes before deciding this was too much for us to handle. We promptly left and headed out to BBQ on the River, a huge BBQ competition downtown on the waterfront. We walked around and nothing sounded appetizing to either of us. Howard asked if I'd rather eat at the little deli downtown and that sounded much better than BBQ so I agreed.
We began walking towards Kirchoff's when I realized it closed at 2 pm and went to check the time on my phone (It was 1:53 in case you are wondering). This isn't such a great idea while walking down a cobblestone street in flip flops. My right flip flop caught the lip of an upraised stone and I began to fall forward. I swear it happened in slow motion and my brain was going, "hahaha, you tripped, you silly girl, now catch yourself with your left foot". But then my left flip flop caught another stone and my brain was like, "hmmm....this isn't good". And down I went. HARD. Did I mention there is a BBQ fest going on and only like a gazillion people around to witness my epic fail? I landed first on my left knee and I swear I heard it shatter. Somehow, I managed to avoid any other injuries. Not even a scrape on my hand. Howard was trying really hard not to laugh at me considering everyone else around was very concerned about me and he didn't want to look like a total asshole. I was able to pick myself up and hobble off attempting to laugh away the pain. I guess it wasn't my knee that shattered, just my pride. Also, I would like to state for the record, that I did not have an ounce of alcohol in me at this time. I would never have fallen if I had.
The rest of the weekend was pretty uneventful. Just a lot of football and booze ;)
And just because, here are a couple pictures of Friday night's sunset taken from our front porch.
