Anyway, as I was saying, I brought my purchases home and was putting them away. I opened the freezer door with two bags of bagels in my left hand and the bottle of rum on top of the fridge leapt at me. For a couple of seconds I was playing a frantic one-handed game of hackysack with the bottle until I was able to bat it into the freezer where it safely came to rest. I guess I'll have to be a little more careful when I put that bottle back up there.
One of my purchases was a pint of Haagen-Daz's Peppermint Bark ice cream. Holy smokes, that is some amazingly good ice cream: chocolate, peppermint, creamy ice cream, and the perfect crunchy texture. I will now have to stay out of the freezer section, lest I launch myself into the freezer and start chugging pints of the stuff.
All this follows a great morning spent with Jen. I made us walnut pancakes for breakfast and then we went on a short walk over to Cheesman Park. We grabbed some good Daz Bog coffee and went over and laid under the colorful fall foliage and talked. Lovely times and lovely leaves and a lovely lady to share them with.
