Tink wrote a rather heartfelt and bittersweet post about, well, you go read it.
BUT, she also asks: what would you do if you had 20 bucks and 2 free hours in which to spend it? I thought for about 2 seconds (or less): I would go to Viva downtown for burritos and beers and get a Batman comic from the comic joint down the street. And lose myself. I am a very cheap and cheerful date, I would say, even if I am alone. And google image cracks me up: type in Batman eating a burrito and you KNOW something good will pop up.
So tell me, what would you do with 20 bucks and 2 hours by yourself? Go to comments.
Also, big shout out to birthday girl Cheri, who sent ME a small package from California to celebrate. Wowie, thanks Cheri!
