Today’s the day the Teddy Bears have their picnic…

I didn’t get to go to that one, though.

Mandrina’s employer’s local managers picnic was yesterday (I’m sure it had a more clever title). I was invited (at the last minute) to go, so I took a half day and went to Lincoln Park in West Seattle. Pretty-ish park, too large to have to walk around… Oh. Wait, we did walk around… ’cause we didn’t know what picnic ground they were at.

Turns out, they were at the first picnic stand we went to — we just didn’t see anyone Mandrina recognized, so we proceeded to walk ALL AROUND the park. Beautiful day out, fortunately, but still.

I, of course, was not allowed to bring my camera, so there are no embarassing photos. Mandrina didn’t process that “picnic” meant “potentially dirty” — so her outfit was not entirely suited (flip-flops were cute, but in dirt-covered paths white flip-flops are a bad idea). I got a black balloon sword — which is now in my office at work. I played half an inning of softball — at short stop. Guess how underrepresented that team was at that moment…

I also go to drive around for a half hour racing to find a softball bat because no one had brought one, and then hurry to work to find out I had to make a presentation in an hour…

I should have gone to the Teddy Bear picnic.

    Oddly enough, I have “moderate comments” turned on… Sorry, Gumby.
