Good idea: joining a group of friends at our local Botanical Garden
Bad idea: my friends informing me that we were to meet at 8:30 AM
Good idea: joining the old ladies doing Latin dancing (or so they said) in the park
Bad idea: pretending that I was Lauren from "So You Think You Can Dance" when in fact my rhythm is as poor as it was during my failed attempt to try out for the drill team in high school
Good idea: dancing to Lady Gaga songs downloaded on their cell phones & being silly throughout the park (After all, these friends are freshmen in college, which makes them about 19 years old. Man, that makes me feel old.)
Bad idea: dancing & being silly around the guys, who weren't really thrilled with the girly giggling
Good idea: agreeing to ride one of the theme park rides at the park with my friend Bonny
Bad idea: agreeing to ride one of the Chinese theme park rides that went upside-down and incredibly fast. Stuff around here isn't really known for its stellar quality...
Good idea: participating in the ever-so popular Chinese past-time of hanging out with pigeons
Bad idea: actually holding the dirty, scabby birds and letting them eat out of your hand
Good idea: hanging out with, getting to know, & loving on these dear Chinese friends
Bad idea: well, there really isn't anything bad to say about that!
