I’m A Feux Bostonian
Attention: It’s 2 weeks until Hurricane Gwen :gwen:
Due to the upcoming event I have learned I am not the Bostonian I thought I was. I can’t think of anything local to offer her other than baked beans and who hasn’t had baked beans? Are Boston’s baked beans really that much better? I have no idea.
Luckily I have been to probably just about every landmark. I’ve been to the Museum of Fine Arts and practically fallen asleep at Fenway Park. Have I been to wherever the football games are? Beats me. I’m going to assume I haven’t.
I didn’t know anything about “The Curse of the Bambino” until like 10 years ago. I guess that explains why I wasn’t all that excited when we beat “the curse” a few years ago. I think I’ve only been to 2 Red Sox games, that I can remember, and the last one I went to I missed the entire game because I was too busy talking. I don’t think I’ve ever watched an entire game.
While I was born in Boston and spent many years living just outside of Boston I do speak all my Rs, most likely because I went to a private school for years. I am technically more “Boston” than most of my friends who actually have a Boston accent.
I still don’t entirely know who Ted Williams is but I know there is a tunnel named after him or I assume that’s the deal, unless he was named after the tunnel which would just be weird. I’m not even sure which tunnel it is.
I do however, say “wicked” a lot, so there’s that 🙂
