Ahhhh Boston

This pic doesn't represent a metaphor of my life. We actually walked past this scene in downtown Boston on Saturday night. We were walking with our ME friends when we stopped to watch this spectacle in the street. We have yet to figure out what had happened/was going on etc...

Boston was extremely refreshing. We walked the entire city a few times over; we ate well in Little Italy - including a stop at Mike's Pastries on Hanover. Admittedly, I'm also looking forward to eating healthy for a bit...

Being in Boston, I imagined the patriots from the Revolutionary Era. Labeled traitors for speaking their minds, they continued to believe in and fight for the liberty we still enjoy today. Over the course of the past 6 or so years, so many of us have been labeled as unpatriotic for disagreeing with our unintelligent idealogue of a president and his cabinet of cronies. I found it absolutely rejuvenating to visit Boston, where the unpatriotic were (and still are today) the most patriotic in our history.

So, the unpatriotic of Boston visited me today at work and talked about how they hate living in Mass because of the gay marriage crap. It just made him sick. It made me sick to have to continue to treat him like a human after his comment. Boo to him and yeah to the rest of civilization that understands I am not here to harm them or interact with them!!!!
