Homeward Bound 3: The Great KC Escape

15 Oct

Poppy is my miniature dachshund. She is afraid of everything.

Mal is my roommate’s Chihuahua mix. He is afraid of nothing.

They are best friends.

Yesterday, the Dynamic Duo decided to reenact Homeward Bound by escaping out an (accidentally) ajar door, prancing down our street, taking a left, trotting one block south, crossing a busy street and continuing down the sidewalk to the neighborhood park to frolic in the grassy field… half a mile away.

I choose to believe that they insisted on the Buddy System and looked both ways before they crossed the street.

This whole ten minute ordeal shaved a good seven years off my life.

Add going to the Nelson Atkins Museum on a Saturday afternoon to the ever growing list of “Reasons I Love Living in Kansas City.”

The list also includes eating snowcones at the aptly named Miami Ice, going to the neighborhood drive-in for a midnight movie and backyard BBQs.

It’s been discussed before. I am not a runner and yet I somehow decided that signing up for a 5K was a good idea.

Turns out, it wasn’t so bad.

If I didn’t like KC and my job so much, there’s a good chance I would have just stayed in Chicago, taken up residence in the Harry Potter closet at my friends’ apartment and survived on a diet of Chicago-style stuffed pizza and wine.

The Lumineers.

To be honest, I knew two songs of The Lumineers prior to going to this show.

I’m in love now. So incredibly good.

I heart KC.

 Have a mentioned lately how much I am loving living in Kansas City?

Because I do.

A lot.
