These pretzels are making me thirsty!

That's a lie. I'm not even eating pretzels. Mainly because they are healthy and I'm not really into that whole thing. Guess what I did last night! Guess! I'll bet you can't! Guess again anyway! I went with L-Ma to see Jerry Seinfeld perform at the Civic Center! Exclamation points to the maxx!!!!! It was totally sweet and awesome. It was everything I hoped for and more. He was really great. He yelled a lot more than I had anticipated, but I was ok with that. What I was not ok with were my audience mates. Lacey was well behaved, of course, but the guy sitting next to her was a serious knee slapper/foot stomper/keel over kind of situation. He was old too. Not cool, man. We didn't know if you were laughing or dying. There were some ladies directly behind me that were repeaters. Simply repeating the last line said doesn't really make anything funnier. Mostly, it just proves you have good short term memory, and I'm a little impressed (read jealous, I can't remember for shit these days) with that when I'm not being annoyed by it. There were no cameras allowed, of course, but if there were, I surely would have taken a picture of the single greatest thing I might have ever seen in my life. And I've seen a lot. Not really, but anyway. So, we're waiting for the show begin and Lacey and I are engaged in our favorite sport, making fun of people's outfits and hair while ignoring our own, when in walks, oh God, it's too good, in walks a guy, wait for it, I'm building this up way too much, right, so in walks this guy wearing a PUFFY SHIRT! The puffy shirt! (Well, not the puffy shirt, it's at the Smithsonian.) We clapped. I'm really not sure what would drive one to wear a puffy shirt to a Seinfeld show, perhaps loss of a contest (ha!) or something, but damn. That totally made my day. Perhaps many days. Then I ate Mexican food. Honestly, there's not much better than that.

Except today, I've been lounging about on the patio reading Chuck Klosterman (fuck you Gawker, I like him) listening to my super awesome summertime mix I just made watching my dog try to chase and eat various flying insects.

Was it a puffy shirt meant to be ironic?
