i love candy. as a child i felt i didn't get enough, so now as an adult, i can totally indulge in the sweet stuff with my adult money. occasionally i get into these candy eating binges, i'll just go into a candystore and just get a big pay-by-the-pound bag of candy. like what i did today, when i went with amanda to the copley square mall so she can buy her duck tour tickets for her visiting parents.
when i came back to the office with my bag of candy, i quickly became the most popular boy in the school. amanda and i took the time to organize the juju fruits into shapes and colors. we also got popcorn from the people next door, and i practiced throwing into amanda's open mouth from a distance, but i'd purposely miss just so i can lob burst kernels at her face, making up for the week of abuse i had to endure.
also today i worked air guitar into my comedic repertoire. i do a very bad air guitar, like i'm molesting my musical instrument, which is what makes it funny i suppose. i'm not sure what brought it on, i think i was talking about phil collins.
i didn't realize that we'd have thunderstorms today. luckily, by the time it came for me to go home, it wasn't raining anymore (i'd been monitoring the weather from weather.com, checking the doppler radar maps). this isn't my first time riding in the rain, but it was my first time riding on wet road conditions from the office. i hardly noticed any difference though, but maybe because i was more careful. no sudden stops, and controlled turns on the corners. i made it home in one piece, sort of amazed that i didn't get drenched on the way back because the sky was pretty overcasted.
