Spontaneous trip to Seaside, OR for Rea’s (early) birthday!
a) Nash, my dog, peed on some poor kid’s sand castle and sprinted into the ocean just so that he could put his weiner in the water.
b) We walked all around the sleepy beach town imagining what it would be like to grow up here. We decided that it would be like “Stand by Me” meets “The Goonies” – so apparently we’d be boys going through puberty while searching for dead bodies and treasures…?
c) Watching the sunset on the beach while sipping red wine from styrofoam cups.
d) Rea said I can’t admit to drinking from a styrofoam cup because we may get kicked out of Portland for single-handedly ruining the environment.
e) “You think I’m gorgeous, you wanna kiss me, love me and marry me.” – Miss Congeniality.
f) Me: “What time should I set the alarm for?” Rea: “What time would you like to set the alarm for…?” Me: “Well I’d really like to get up early enough to go look for sand dollars so…how about 6?” Rea: “How bout you quit smokin’ crack before bed?”
