Today is Friday the 13th. I can’t report any bad luck for today. I mean, no more than I normally deal with anyways. It was actually a rather pleasant Friday the 13th. The weather finally broke and it was a beautiful cool day. A fall day. Upper 60s for a high. It’ll get down to the low 40s tonight. This is the weather I wait for every year. Break out the hooded sweatshirt and jean jacket kids.
On this particular Friday the 13th I’ve got the house to myself. Well, me and the dog have the house to ourselves. My wife is helping at the school for the Family Movie Night and the two youngest are there. I took them in -along with a couple of the neighbor kids- around 6:30pm to enjoy Hotel, Transylvania, free popcorn, pizza, and candy. I’m sure it will be a blast. Why am I not there? Well, if it were a normal Friday evening I probably would be. But my wife got the night off and this is the first movie night she’s been able to attend as she’s normally working till 7pm. So she went in and said I could stay home. I didn’t think twice. So, the plan was for my oldest daughter and I to just chill out at home and maybe grab a bite to eat and watch a movie. That was not to be, as she got invited over to one of her BFFs to spend the night.
Alone again, naturally…
That’s all right. I get to play the stereo as loud as I want and indulge in some Michelob Amberbock brews. I was going to put on Django Unchained and watch that while everyone was gone, but vinyl and beer just sounded better to me. Hell, I should watch Friday the 13th. Or four of them. Ehh..I’ll just stick with the music and beer for now.
So what are you all doing on this Friday evening? Come on, don’t be shy. I want to hear from you. Light up the phone lines. Blow up the comment section. Let me know you’re out there and listening. If you’re having a beer tonight, what are you drinking? Listening to some music? What are you listening to?
Happy Friday the 13th everyone!
