Today was a fun day. Went back into the former Motherland of the Main Line to the Historic Harriton House annual fair. I volunteered there forever, today I just went as a guest. I loved it, such a beautiful day. I scored some amazing vintage linens half price in the treasures booth after 1 PM. They are soaking now in Restoration Linen Wash and tomorrow will dry them outside on a clothes rack.
We also went into Berwyn for dinner. Otoro for amazing sushi. They were super busy, which is great for them.
However, what was not great was the lack of parking. Easttown wants to develop and super-size but I have to ask where exactly the stupidvisors there (not apologizing they are terrible) think people will park? It took forever to find a spot and Tommy’s Towing was circling the train station parking lot and others in Berwyn like sharks. The lot across from Clay’s was all roped off, which totally was not helpful.
Now amusement inside the restaurant were the teenage girls sitting at the sushi bar. I guess they want to be influencers or something, but every as in EVERY bite of food they put in their mouths, they took a selfie. It was hysterical.
Then we move to the not so hysterical next to us on Lancaster Avenue when we were taking my father in law home. A car full of teenage or just past teenage girls. A non-descript sedan with a temporary Maryland paper tag.
So anyway this one Twinkie in the back says (LOUDLY) “look at da old man” referring to my father in law.
She says it again “You guys LOOK AT DAT OLD MAN!” (I think they heard her in Exton.)
I did something I have never, ever done before. Rolled down my passenger window, gave her a big smile, the middle finger, and rolled the window back up.
“Oh dat lady gave me the finger” she shrieks from the next lane, as we pulled away in traffic. (Ummm yes, bless your heart. If you want to be disrespectful about your family, by all means go for it. But not my people.) I remember being that age, but I don’t remember being that ridiculous.
Now I am sitting here at home and the sounds of laughter and music from a live band and a big party are filtering through the woods. It sounds like they are having a great time. Alanis Morissette and Third Eye Blind songs dancing through the trees.
It’s nice to hear life again.
Thanks for stopping by.
I have to tell you Carla, that I really enjoy your posts so much. This one made me laugh out loud and that’s exactly what I needed this morning. Today I’m taking my ninety year old mother with me to that Willisbrook farm sale that you posted about yesterday. I can’t wait because I truly need some retail therapy. Keep posting my friend, I really look forward to each and every one of them. Eileen
