We went to a Bernie rally / Labor Day celebration at town hall yesterday. The event was barely advertised and only loosely organized. It was hot, but we dragged the kids out of the house and attempted a family outting. It didn’t work out well.
The event was from 1pm-3pm. We were there for a little over an hour and Bernie Sanders hadn’t yet arrived. We saw some friends, listened to a few speakers, and eventually decided we we’re too hot and tired to continue. Actually, the kids decided that before we even left the house!
As a consequence for their grumpiness, I made the kids come grocery shopping with me before we went home. Alan came along happily. 😁 After a quick stop at Starbucks to cool off and sugar up we were all feeling better and ended up having a fun family outting after all — even if it was just to the grocery store. 😁
