Drinkin' in the Rain

This weekend I met my friend Sara and some of her peeps at the Beer Garden in Astoria, Queens. The Beer Garden is my most favorite spot in NYC. The heady mix of beer, being outdoors and bratwurst is enough to turn any frown upside down.

Except on Saturday it rained. Non-stop. It was unreal. It was an unreal, wet and horrible experience. And at first my comrades and I thought we could just wait it out the table with unbrellas. Well...we were wrong. And drenched. And I think 2 of us may have died of pneumonia.

There was a baby there too - like, a 6-month old baby, whose parents did not take inside during the storm. I was simultaneously amused/horrified by the constant presence of a laughing dancing baby during the torrential downpours, and decided that one day I hoped to have a kid that kick-ass. And then we could have play dates with other kick-ass parents babies:

Hahaha. Just kidding! I don't want kids.
