The children will have to deal.

Honestly? I think making out at the park is trashy. Those couples always annoy me. Some of us are here to play catch, which is a park-appropriate, wholesome activity. Some of us think about the children, who should be able to frolic without wondering what that couple is doing under that tree. Some of us believe that private activities should be conducted in private, that they might be pursued with abandon and followed to their natural conclusion.

But sometimes, you're both home for the weekend, staying at your parents' houses. Sometimes you have to sneak out like teenagers, even though you never actually did that when you knew each other as teenagers. Sometimes, despite the fact that it sounds like an awful lot of fun, you don't have the follow-through to rent a room by the hour. So sometimes, you have steal an afternoon on some soft grass under a big pine tree.

It was great.

Woohoo!

Just a fun fling or might we potentially lose your wonderful blog forever? Inquiring minds want to know.

Cheers,
Tim.

But. But. If it was great, why isn't it blog-threatening? Do I know this guy? I don't think so, right? I think it should be blog-threatening. Gimme his number, I'll work on it. :)

You'd like him, Dubin. I think you'd call him an NJB.

Don't think you do know him. I think he left our junior high to go to El Camino in my ninth grade. So there was no possible overlap for you two.

But, but, but... maybe if he knew how you really felt it would be different. Maybe if you told him how much you liked him it would all work out. Just like it did the last time you were all open about your feelings. Like Megan said, not blog threatening, but sounds like a fun diversion. Don't get too diverted. Remember we're not looking for you to get some, we're looking for you to get A LOT!

It is all about the trainwreck for you, isn't it Margie?

Apparently I was at the wrong park. Stupid practice! :)

Even though serious PDA annoys me too, I suppose I can't fault you for stealing some moments under a tree. You're excused.

I am pro-PDA (both in my own relationships and those of other people). Doing otherwise means the Ds of A are largely restricted to the ins of doors, which is a tremendous waste. And I think people need more Ding of A in general anyway.

Nothing could threaten the blog. Megan is too addicted to it. She will be typing up posts while breast feeding one day. It will morph from a dating blog and water blog to a marriage and water blog to a baby and water blog.

Got rid of some spam.

Justus, you've been right before, so you might be right about this too. But, I notice that when I'm at my sister's, and we're working on projects and cooking and watching babies, I want to be on the internet much less. On the other hand, I have more of a life to talk about and the posts come quicker and easier.

I didn't realize how addicted to it I was until I tried to take that break. We haven't yet tested my theory that I need a fixed amount of attention, and the dilute attention from you guys is substituting for concentrated attention from a sweetheart. If I get that and am still addicted to the blog, you'll be hearing about every last adorable thing my bitty baby does.

Entry from 2009: I took my toddler to the park. There were two trashy younger folks making out on some soft grass under a big pine tree. Why can't they get a room, or at least think about the children who should be able to frolic without wondering what that couple is doing under that tree. Some of us believe that private activities should be conducted in private, that they might be pursued with abandon and followed to their natural conclusion.

When you're at your sister's you're with your sister.

When you have a baby, your baby daddy will be at work while you're on maternity leave and you'll have a choice between daytime soaps and posting blog entries.

When you have a baby I hope you at least post every couple of weeks, like Mimi Smartypants.
