I don’t know if I’ve assimilated, or Eugene is less weird/funny the past 6 months or so. Fear not! I have news!
Today has been lovely – first sunny & warm enough that I could open all my windows and air out for the first time in a while, then the clouds rolled in and it rained hard. Then the sun broke through and there was a faint rainbow. The neighborhood was still lively, even with the showers, and people were smiling. Then! There were exciting noises coming from the park! 80s-sounding action movie music! I looked out to find 3 high school-aged boys with things strapped to their hands, kickboxing TO THE MUSIC! It was fantastic. They jumped and twisted and roundhouse kicked…and missed most of their targets. I’m going to miss this park!
