Tonight my family will eat Chinese food and maybe rent a movie. It isn't exciting. When my husband and I lived in Revere (town just outside of Boston) I would have to order our food on the thirtieth and then pick it up around noon on New Years Eve, and keep it in the oven to keep it warm until my husband got home. The restaurant we used assigned 15 minute pick up times. Everyone in that time slot had a name in a red plastic cup, you gave your name and they searched the cup. If you didn't make it at your assigned time, your food went back into the kitchen.
I always made it, so I have no idea what happened after your food went back.
Here in Delaware we can just call at five and then pick it up. That is all. Easy.
Tonight the town where I work will drop a giant mushroom. In the town's defense it is mushroom capital of the world.
Also there will be shooting. I know that isn't restricted to my area, but when we moved to the Delaware Valley I had never experienced it before, but after spending most of my childhood here it seemed normal. Then I married and he moved back here with me. My husband isn't a fan of the shooting.
Tomorrow is the Mummers Day Parade and he just loves that!
