so we finally bought T a bbq. It may not be the fanciest bbq, but it'll do just fine for us. i mean i've never really bbq'd much, and i haven't really seen T do it much either. but with our backyard setup, it sure seemed like a mandatory acquisition.
last night i put it together, while T prepared dinner (he's not really the greatest at building things.. well not as great as me anyways). the instructions said it would take an hour to build... it was daylight when i started, and as you can see in the photo, the sun had set by the time i finished (2 hrs later, during which i should've been calling for a cold beer or something). so maybe since i'm kind of half the size of a normal person, it took me double the time to make it. or perhaps because the instructions suggested having 2 people build it. and this morning i woke up with a sore forearm, i guess i should've used the power drill... anyways now since i built it, i'll be expecting yummy grilled foods on a regular basis.
This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.
