Weekend Best

Sometimes I long for the normal-ities in life. You know? The white picket fence. The 9 to 5. The yearly vacation. As I drove around this weekend numb from doing errands, aka making marketing calls aka dry cleaning the race team shirts aka managing social media details, I had a moment. A stoplight sideshow, I caught myself staring at a young man, his wife, their parents, in their weekend best, laughing in the quaint garden of thier adorable house, sun setting, on the way out for an evening on the town. A sudden wave of emotions, I, many of times, long for the appeal of the common couple, full of Sunday brunch, instead of Sunday race time crunch. Middle-Class monotony, I envy you and, for at least a moment, this weekend I joined you. The calm before the storm, the boy and I seized our Sunday funday, simply stopping for a second to soak in the sun. An hour at the dog park, a trip to the candy store and an afternoon nap, these are some of my favorite things.
