Sunday Morning Church Disservice: Pleasant Valley Sunday

It’s going to be a bee-yoo-tee-ful Sabbath here in Bagwine, Ohio today. Sunny and 72 degrees.

I have been at the Beer Mine for two years now, and up until a couple of weeks ago, I worked every Sunday. Now, I have Sundays off.

I don’t know what it is, but I rather prefer having Sundays off as opposed to Saturdays. Sundays just feel so laid back…especially during the warm months.

I mean, what’s not to like? For instance, today…

I am going to get up no later than seven…have a couple of cups of coffee, take a shower, and be ready to go out by 8:45 or so.

I am then going to go to Schuler’s Donuts and pick up two glazed donuts for Ryno, two chocolate crème-filled for his mom, and head over to their house.

Ryno has a report due for school Monday and he has finished it, so I am going to look it over and harshly criticize it give him my opinion.

I’ll be there until about 10:30 at which point I will be off, as they will be headed to church. Ha, Suckers!!

I will then head to the grocery in search of brats that don’t cost an arm and a leg, and pick up some buns for said brats as well.

Upon returning home, I will turn on some music and boil the brats as I tip some cold ones. After a slow boil, I will then proceed to grill the brats with onions and peppers in a skillet and of course, tip a few more.

At 1 or so the Reds play the Cubs and I will listen to it on the radio. There’s something about the radio and baseball that strikes me as the perfect marriage of sport and media.

Schmoop and I will listen to the game, have a couple of beers and shoot the shit, while Corky sleeps curled up in the rocking chair or under the covers in the bed.

And, the windows will be open, so the vernal breezes will be carrying the fresh spring air into the digs.

Ahhhhhh, indeed…what’s not to like about a day like that?

If I’m lucky, the post game festivities will include a roll in the bed from hell with Schmoop. There’s nothing like three hours of brats, beer, and baseball followed by three sixty minutes of hot sex.

To me, that’s the perfect doubleheader, and after that, who cares what the rest of the day brings?

So there you have it, my idea of a pretty damn good Sunday.

Amen, and Amen.

I hope that you too enjoy your Sunday no matter what you plan on doing.

Batter up, and of course…

I wish someone would deliver some homemade donuts to me in the morning. Not that I need them, but they sure sound good. And very polite to get his mother some, too!

I hope you and Schmoop have a great laid back Sunday! Enjoy :-)

Sounds like a perfect day.

If I'm lucky Lenny will be back tomorrow afternoon too. No need to babysit tomorrow and I'll get lucky again!

That is the one and only aspect of Northeastern weather that I miss; those perfect early spring days. My daughter and ex-wife are up around your way today in a big soccer tourney. Her team is ranked 11th in the country and she’s only 11 so of course, I’m just hoping she’ll buy me a house in Aruba some day….no really though, she is a bad ass.

Sounds like a perfect Sunday to me, I hope it works out just like you imagine!

Matt-Man said...

Phfrankie: Those things are all good, no? And sex? IF I actually have sex today, I'll let you know what it's like. I've forgotten, myself. Cheers P-Man!!

Scott: Holy Cow!! I didn't know you had a daughter. Well good luck to her and her team. And yeah you're right. Crisp, clean spring days are something sweet and need to sipped slowly. Cheers Scott!!

I had been molested by 8 am. Good way to start out a Sunday. I hope yours turns out just as fun.

I've always been in a conundrum about retail places that sell "home made" foods. I ask and ask "In whose home were they made?" but no one can ever tell me.

Is their home clean? Do they have cat hair on all the kitchen counters? Did they wash their hands? Does the person scrubbing the pots have TB or swine flu?

Hope you enjoy the perfect spring day there in Bagwine. Spring is just about the most perfect season. Mild temps and low humidity. Ahhhh....

Matt-Man said...

Evil: I was molested a few minutes ago. Some lady hit me in the ass with her grocery cart. Enjoy any further molestation the day may bring. Cheers ETW!!

David: Everything they sell is made on site in their own bakery here in Bagwine. They've been around for decades. They're the best. Cheers!!

Dana said...

You are boiling the brats in beer ... right??

Enjoy your Sunday!

Jay said...

I think you've talked me into brats. I might run and get some and put them on the grill. Good plan dude!

Matt-Man said...

Dana: Well I would use Wild Irish Rose but haven't any on hand so yeah, beer will have to do. Cheers Dana!!

Jay: Don't they sound good? we haven't had them in awhile. And, I bought kraut and some buns spegially designed for brats. Yeah Baby. Go get some Jay. Cheers!!

Mike: Getting up at seven is sleeping in where I'm concerned. Cheers Mike!!
