My Day of Extreme Popularity
Today I was invited to three separate social gatherings. The first was a family picnic at noon organized by one of the programs I support as a functional manager. We went to the Aurora Reservoir and feasted on pulled pork and many other fine things. The reservoir was full of waders, kayakers, and paddleboaters.
At three o'clock I joined four friends from work at a local beer tasting emporium. I defected from the ranks and chose a beet-sugar concoction called Colorado Cola. It was satisfactory.
Finally, I had dinner this evening with church friends. It was a fine conclusion to a wonderful day, a day that contained as much social activity as I usually enjoy during an entire month.
