Saturday night, we went out to our favorite bar with a big group of friends to celebrate my new job. Let's just say that my friends and I are that group in the bar that makes a lot of noise and isn't afraid to involve others in the bar in our fun. For example, Saturday night, the group (there were 9 of us) decided it was time to chant my name in celebration of me getting a job. So 8 very loud voices start chanting "Er-in! Er-in! Er-in!" while signaling to the other innocent patrons of the bar to join in. And join in they did. All of them. LoLo could tell I was getting embarrassed so he yelled "YEAHHHHHH!!!" and did a little fist pump to take the attention off me. Well apparently, a woman in the bar thought he was pretty cute (and that we were chanting "Eric") because a little while later as she was leaving, she tapped him on the shoulder and said "Have a good night, Eric" while trying to smile cutely.

Today, I kept myself busy so that I wouldn't have time to be nervous or anxious. In between errands, I caught the Red Sox game on TV (it's Patriots Day in Maine and Massachusetts which is a state holiday and the Red Sox traditionally play an 11 AM game). My favorite announcers, Don and Jerry flashed back to this hilarious moment. Even if you hate baseball, you will love this clip.
When LoLo got home from work, we tried to grill some burgers...but when they were about halfway done, we ran out of gas. Oops.
