YEAR OF THE WHITE SANGRIA
Then it was down the 29 we went into Charlottesville for the weekend. As expecteded Saturday morning we totally overslept. When from the kitchen there rose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter. Rubbing my eyes and readjusting my shorts I headed downstairs, when my dreams were answered and in my hand a splenda cappuccino appeared.
I love the Egelmans! Well the parents headed to the airport, on a mission to shop electron microscopes in Europe, the four of us rushed to get inline for the infield plots.
Arriving 'late' the green infield section was much more crowded this year. Looks like 2008 was a big graduation year, because the typical 4 to a plot exploded to about 15. True story.
The new electric pink corn hole set was hit. I'm still touting a 2 point scoring average, but Adam was the winner - eliciting even law enforcement to comment. (One cop told Adam he sucked, then told me he was concerned he pissed Adam off. I told the cop he was married so he was free to leave but his partner was free and introduced him to Angela. Whether it was their new buddy or their concern for further debauchery - They came back to check on us often.)
As the sun set, we attempted to return to the Egelman castle to no avail. (blocked road) so into to town our sunburnt preppy asses went. What a show.
