We suck at making plans. We don't suck at saying "we should make plans," and apparently don't suck at hiring a babysitter. But what to do? We suck. Here's how we usually plan things:
Claud: "Should we do something Saturday night?"
Me: "Sure. Awesome."
Claud: "OK, I'll call the babysitter. Think about what you want to do."
Me: "We're going out Saturday, right?"
Me: "What are we doing?"
Claud: "I don't know."
Me: "We should figure that out"
Saturday night....15 minutes before babysitter arrives -
Me: "What should we do tonight?"
Claud: "I don't know, what do you want to do?"
Me: "I don't care. I'll do whatever. What do you want to do?"
Claud: "I don't know. You decide."
Me: "But I don't care what we do. Are you sure there's nothing you want to do?"
And so on, until we're standing outside a restaurant with a 45 minute wait without a reservation, or reading all the movie titles which started 15 minutes before we got there. Next thing we know we're shelling out $70 to a babysitter so we could spend 6 hours looking for a public bathroom. Pathetic, right? We suck!
It wasn't a completely lost weekend, I guess. We had lunch with friends on Saturday, and, went to Williamsburg for the first and probably last time. Also, I bought some pants. If anyone has any suggestions for last-minute activities in and around NYC I'd love to hear them. 'Cause we suck.
