It’s been a long day. I was able to talk to my dad recently so I’m feeling much better about his hospital stay.
I woke up this morning with a plan. Despite the rainy weather, I went down to the Cass Corridor to participate in the Marche du Nain Rouge. It’s sorta like Detroit’s version of Mardi Gras. Legend has it that the Nain Rouge was first spotted when attacked Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac settled the area the area that would become Detroit and the Nain Rouge has been responsible for every calamity that Detroit has seen in its 315 year history.
After the parade I headed down the street to Motor City casino for the LGBT wedding expo. Why did I go you might wonder? After all I’m not dating anyone and am so far away from getting married. Well, I was allured by the promise of free food. And that promise was true. Every other vendor had cake samples or chocolate samples or candy samples. And I arrived right at the moment the underwear fashion show was happening. Bonus!
After the expo, I was abducted by my friends, Dennis and Michael. I haven’t seen them them since before my hibernation so it was good to hang out. They took me to the pagan temple that them and Emma and Suzi have becomes involved with. I don’t know how involved I’ll get. They’ve had some classes that I’ve been interested in but they always fall on days I can’t attend. But, I have to say I enjoyed the meeting. It was on self-care. And I enjoyed Green Lantern afterwards.
I’ve had a really great day, from waking up to now about to go to bed. I wish all days were like today.
