Sorry about the late blog post today guys. I am off on a work trip here in beautiful Washington State. We’re in Spokane and naturally we wanted to see the sights. So what do we do. We turn to Siri on our iphones and tell her to find us something wonderful to do and or see between all our meetings, briefings, meetings, and etc. You know how a business trip goes. Anyway with the advent of a million apps that do nothing we start looking around for things to do in Spokane and boom…Suction Goat.
So we have to see suction goat. There is just no alternative. Boom, we’re off from the hotel which has the unfortunate side effect of stalling one or more of us in the elevator randomly. I have received numerous texts already along the lines of, LOL, stuck in the elevator. Okay guys, I think we’ve learned our lesson. The hotel only has three stories so honestly are the stairs so out of question? I mean come on, it is three flights, plus we spent the day exploring the park area in downtown Spokane. But I’ve got to say, once we escaped the elevator of doom, which might or might not have had a portal to an alternate universe in it, which would explain all the stoppages, we finally made it downtown. And behold after following our maps and then asking a nice bicycle cop to get to the goat we arrived.
And the suction goat did NOT disappoint. It is a vacuum powered garbage disposal unit in the shape of a metal goat next to a park. Then we went to see the world’s largest Radio flyer wagon and then some nice lunch at a sushi joint. Then we hit up the skyride. It was a most pleasurable afternoon, and we had a lot of fun and got to joke around while seeing some things we would never think to see otherwise. The point is really this, we go all over the place and with the help that technology and other people provide we can find all sorts of wonderful things to do and see that we would never find. There may be a curse with too much technology, but with that there is a trade-off, doing and seeing things that an area map, or brief description the place you’re visiting might just gloss over, kind of like the hope at the bottom of Pandora’s box. We have the suction goat.
Oh, and later I plan on making four co-workers jump into a pool, just because it is fun and I can. HAHAHAHA.
