crackerjack and buttered squid


I spent a gorgeous Sunday afternoon at the ballpark driven to a sublime delirium under the scorching sun and beating chundersticks of LG fans. And I believe that Korean people have discovered the path to a sports nirvana. There's no better way to while the day away than at a game with a fellow Sox fan. But add to that the pleasures of meat on a stick (thanks Alex, the meat stick was lovely and so big!), buttered squid, and portable draft beer and you have the ultimate sporting experience. Halleluiah and amen. Will the genius of Korean engineering never end? We are so going to take over the world. And you know it was a good night when at least one person vows never to drink again. Or when you end the evening singing karaoke directly above a tranny bar. Of course I may be skimming over some minor details, like that we dropped over $300 eating greek food, or that I bawled my eyes out listening to a karaoke rendition of a Queen song, or that I got one of the most grotesque sets of blisters you have ever seen from walking in a new pair of shoes.

A small price to pay for an afternoon well spent.

Those blisters look nasty. I'm still whincing. I say pop them quick and just wear Birckenstocks or flip-flops until the gashes heal.

Pop or not to pop. That is the question! You think I should just pop one side and see which heals faster?

Oh Min Suh. Your poor feet. I would not have approved of the shoes.
You pop (make a small laceration to drain the fluid) and then leave the skin on top and then apply some neosporin or the Korean equivalent "Cambison" on with a bandaid.

Still haven't popped them. They are billowy and soft to the touch. I'm getting attached to them. So fun to play with. So sad to see them go...
