Today, I walked out of the apartment, into the backyard. I smelled grilling hotdogs. I heard firecrackers on one side and a nail gun on the other side. In the background, someone was playing Journey. It's moments like that when you realize that Life really is kind of amazing. Since them, I've gone to a baseball game, had some hot dogs and nachos. Came home to the neighbors putting on fireworks displays that would make some small towns jealous. Now, I'm having pretzels and beer.
