Yesterday was a perfect day. The weather was hot, but not humid. We started the day at a graduation party for a dear friend’s son. We stayed long enough to enjoy food and rich fellowship with friends and then we left for the ballpark. Camden Yards in Baltimore is a beautiful park. We looked for our seats and they were on the shaded side of the park. Perfect for me. The kids immediately went out to the concession stands to get ballpark hot dogs, funnel cake and fries. Cold water was enough for me. One fact I have failed to mention is I hate baseball I think I can trace this back to childhood. I grew up in the era of one television and it was black and white. My dad was a postman and he was off on Mondays. So during the summer my sister and I would be watching something on the one television and my dad would say turn to Channel 9, I just want to see the score, and we knew then it was over. He would sit down and watch that game to the bitter end, and growing up in Chicago watching the Cubs the end was mostly bitter, but that’s my digression back to my perfect day. So what could make a day at the ballpark perfect for me? It was a time to just relax and laugh with my husband and children. A time to simply chill, and as they say smell the roses. We as a society don’t do it often, but it is good feeling, and I hope everyone has one perfect day this summer.
A Perfect Day at the Ballpark
