There’s this little thing going on ’round these parts known as Oktoberfest.
You might have heard of it. I have zero plans to get anywhere near Oktoberfest. (I don’t like beer or drinking in general. I don’t like crowds. I don’t like standing in line. I don’t like standing in line for beer while surrounded by a crowd. It’s just not for me.) But Stephen and his two best buds decided that Oktoberfest was right up their alley.
They decided to spend Saturday in Munich, and naturally, they needed a designated driver. (AKA me.) Thankfully my DD duties only required me to drive to and from the local train station and not all the way to Munich.
In order for them to get a good amount of time at Oktoberfest, they had to start the day pretty early to catch a 7am train. That also meant that I had to be up early to drop them off at the train! Oy vey!
I was a little bit anxious about driving the streets of Germany by myself. (I’ve driven to and from post alone, but that’s it.) After a few wrong turns and many minutes spent gazing at my GPS, I did eventually make it home. The first order of business was getting back into my jammies and back into bed. I promptly fell asleep until noon. Oopsie! Didn’t mean to sleep that late, but it felt so good. I must’ve needed it.
Once I pulled myself out of bed, I watched a lot of tv, talked to my dog, painted my nails, layed on the couch, and eventually I went to the commissary to buy ingredients for chili. And that was it!
It felt so good to be lazy. I know it seems like I’m lazy everyday, but most days I actually do have goals, errands, tasks to complete. Stephen and his buddies were decidely not lazy; they were much more along the lines of crazy. And since I wasn’t there and cannot do their experience justice, Stephen has offered to write a guest post about this adventures! Look for it tomorrow!
Have you ever been to Oktoberfest? Are you a beer fan? I like the movie Beer Fest, but that’s as far as my beer love goes.*
