the night ended with a white guy on guitar leading us in rock classics and i found myself wishing i were that guy. it is a tradition with these people so it isn't as obviously dorky as it sounds. i'm wondering if i came in with a folio of johnny cash and joy division if they would let me play.
football was a wash. we played in the park instead of the street like we usually do and the main difference between streets and parks at night is that streets are lit and parks are not. it is really really hard to catch a football when you can't see it. no one scored but we did attract attention from passersby.
it's all so different from thanksgiving when i was little.
