The thing to do in Minneapolis when it gets nice out is go to Lake Calhoun and take the 5K jaunt around the lake. If you have a very fussy dog, all the better. If you can strap your dog into a handbag or backpack, even more perfect. And if you want to take off your shirt and put on some expensive sunglasses and get out your rollerblades and talk on your cell phone and show off the tan you obviously didn't get in Minnesota, then you'll fit right in.
That's exactly what we did last night, and it was fantastic. We bought some sushi at the fancy grocery store down the way and had some at the dock, then oggled at the dogs and the tans and the sunglasses and the people, oh the people, that were there at the lake. We weren't even slowed down by the tragic homocide that took place there two weeks ago (although we did clear out by dark).
What fun is spring!
