Right near our (Dena and I’s) neighborhood, there is a shopping center that has a couple small dive bars in it.  Dive bars that we LOVE to go to… for several reasons.  First, you cannot beat the entertainment that you find in dive bars, you just can’t, I dare you to try.  Second, cheap drinks that are made strong.  Last, it is walking distance from our house in case we need to walk home after a night of drinking and after we hit up 7-11 for some Go Go Taquitos (our staple drunk food).  I tell you all this because yesterday, at around 1:45pm, Kaiden and I left the house and were heading to my mom’s house.  We were waiting at the light when Kaiden heard a bunch of yelling and said “MOM, oh my gosh, those guys are screaming cuss words at each other and fighting each other.”  So OF COURSE, I had to quickly pull into the parking lot and park near them so that we could watch what was going down!  That was a quality education

entertainment opportunity and we WERE NOT going to miss it!  (Peggy - you should include some field trips like this in your homeschooling curriculum)


It was hilarious!  They were screaming in each other’s faces, stuff like “YOU KNOW DAMN WELL THAT’S MY MONEY YOU SONOFAB*TCH” and kept swinging punches at each other and missing because they were already THAT wasted drunk before 2pm on a Sunday.  Kaiden was all worried and wanted to know if I was going to get out and do something… she is so cute and naive (still in training).  Hell no… I was snapping photos and trying to get Dena on the phone as fast as I could!  Then, as fast as it started - it was done.  They headed back in the bar to continue drinking and we continued our drive to my mom’s house.

Earlier that day, Kaiden had a small meltdown because she could not go run two miles with Dena and Ethan, due to the fact that she left her running shoes at school on Friday… we were talking during our drive and I said “Do you think me letting you watch a bar fight makes up for you not getting to go running this morning?”  She answered “Yes!  That was so AWESOME!”  Yes it was… yes it was!!!
