The Back Page

Good stuff in 2012: Mara’s trips, the “Oh Sherrie” sing off, domesticated car-driven weekends with yearly playlists, R.A. Dickey’s book and Cy Young season, unexpected meetings at Sample, “Baba O’Riley” at the Derby, holidays weekends with the Mondays off, the wings and meatball sandwich combo at Bonnie’s, good company and amazing food at Battersby, football-inspired day-drinking and Ted Leo’s Don Barnes impression.
This list took four large Dunkin Donuts iced teas, one turkey and cheese on a whole wheat hero, one bag of Charms Blow Pops Minis, one sirloin steak, one bowl of corn, four Blue Razz Blow Pops, two 20 oz. diet cokes and four trips on the F Train. And all of that took place within 24 hours. Yeah, I wrote this whole thing (warts, spelling mistakes and all) in a 25 hour period from 3:00 p.m. on December 27th to 4:00 p.m. on December 28th. It was quite a rush. And a wicked change of pace from doing it in fits and starts over a few weeks. Although, I don’t think I’ll do it this late ever again.
