My original plan was go to Central Park’s annual water fight, where hundreds of New Yorkers get together and well, fight! After stopping by my local toy shop to pick up some water guns (seems like I buy new ones every time, because I always give them away to little kids or something) I met up with good friends Maryann and Kevin, the cutest couple ever.
We finally arrived at the park, even though we thought we were gonna get lost because I never been to that side of the park before. We found the Great Lawn in no time. Now the problem was, we didn’t see anybody wetting each other like crazy. All we saw was people tanning on the grass and baseball being played.
That wasn’t gonna stop us from having fun regardless…. it was each man for themselves, and since there were only 2 guns, someone was assed out on rotation.
We stopped by The Turtle Pond, where Kevin found some berries and got us girls to grow some “cojones” and feed the turtles, one which snapped right away at Maryann. Mine was a bit fussy, and after chasing him for a few seconds, he finally gave in.
The sun was beaming and the water pistols were refreshing after all that catching up and “hiking” we were doing. At least that’s what it felt like we were doing. My combat rain boots didn’t help.
After the stroll, M & K were read for part two of their day, they were headed to Brooklyn Bridge to go bicycling. While walking to the train, Maryann surprised with the cutest gift.
I looooove sunflowers, they’re my favorite flowers if I had to pick one. That and cactus, but back to the sunflowers. I have never owned sunflowers, let alone received them as a gift, let alone received them for no reason.
MaryAnn was sneaky about it while shopping for them, I gave her the best hug I knew how. Now they sit on my kitchen table looking absolutely beautiful.
