Hip Hop Hot Dogs (and Tots!)
Karen, Katie, and I met our friend George for lunch at King David Dogs on Tuesday. We all work downtown, so the plan was to get dogs and tots (best in the city) and to eat on the Circle and then to tour the sort of hidden Civil War Museum that is housed in the basement of the Monument.
It was a great day on the Circle. The sun shone. The trees have all leafed out (again). The 500 Festival is gearing up so there were 20 topless orange convertibles all lined up around the monument. The Festival Queen and her mom/manager strolled about. A cover band played Journey tunes on the steps. Throw in tots and excellent dogs and lunch can’t get much better (although mine did actually improve when Karen and Katie gave me some of the tots they couldn’t eat!) We found out the museum is closed on Tuesdays. So we went for ice cream at South Bend Chocolate Company instead.
We all groaned our way back to our offices, but we had a good time and no one would have to know we’d shortened our life span by 3 years with all of the hydrogenated fats we’d just eaten. After all, what happens on the Circle stays on the Circle, right? Then Karen tells me this morning that her husband came home from a Committee on Lay Leadership meeting at church last night. Someone had mentioned that Karen and I are considering starting a Hip Hop Aerobics class “ministry” with some DVDs she saw on television.
Evidently George who is also on this committee piped up with a “well, after what they’ve been eating, they’re gonna need it.”
All I have to say is I don’t remember eating any of George’s tots. He managed to choke them and that Crumby Cookie ice cream in a cake cone down all by himself! I guess there will at least be three of us that show up for that first class.
