lunch with a S3X educator!



(me, Georges Le Soq, Christi and Colleen)

You will firstly notice that I am wearing the colors for my GANG, the BAMF Art Blog Bunch, featuring the rockin' punk bunny logo designed by kasey.

ALRIGHT, Christi at the last second is like "DINO ROAD TRIP????!!!!" and I am like "YES. Clay and Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, here we come..."



But first, we had to go to Clayscapes Pottery Supply in Syracuse right by Dino BBQ, 50 miles up the road. It is a family business and I love them so, here is Andrew helping load hundreds of pounds of clay into my elderly Subaru. Andrew gets to drive a forklift, lucky dog...
After clay, of course, Christi and went to our favorite biker bar, as I say, Dinosaur BBQ. Benji was gonna come along too, but he could not be raised out of bed. My rotton sock monkey Georges Le Soq DID come along, and he had a banana with hot sauce.

Christi's friend Colleen lives up there and met us for lunch. I was sitting there telling them about how I had asked my old buddy Wendy to join us too. Wendy is about ten months younger than me, her sister Mary Beth my age. I have written about them: we grew up on the same block, went to school together, we were buddies going WAY back. To what, age 12 or something? (Colleen and Christi go back further, to 2nd grade! Christi is such a loyal friend). I got a basset hound puppy for Christmas one year. I named her Wendy. I mean, I LIKED those sisters....

ANYWAY, just as we see Wendy coming up to the restaurant, I am telling them how my little childhood friend Wendy went to college, became a bartender and muscian and now works as a S3X EDUCATOR. Not one of those things my little 12 year old brain would have imagined, believe me....below, me and Wendy the S3X educator....



Georges Le Soq....


If you are at a biker bar, you need a tattoo of my cat on your arm....



or maybe a tattoo of my dog on your arm....
The waitress was, of course, super nice, as Dino waitresses are. As Christi pointed out, she had that low cut top and way of leaning across the table to show us her ample goodies....which didn't do much for our table---I always go to Dino with much prettier women than the waitresses....


Georges is a pig alright....



Christi was like "I gotta see Penny" and I was like

"watch out, she will jump on your lap!" and Penny did....


Later, of course, was happy hour, and there is Elon, having his coke, not the beers, as he is madly studying for the bar exam.....

Penny looks like she thinks she really CAN fly, if only someone will hold her ears.

BAMF SHIRT!!!
Thanks for the shout-out, homey! You're awesome!!

Lunching with a sex educator would be fun times I think.

I heart Penny's ears. She's like a doggie Dumbo.
