We came up with the idea as the day was fading away. We grabbed a blanket and supplies from the house and stopped to pick up charcoal from the grocery store. Armed with our meager provisions, we watched the sun fall from the sky as we set ablaze tired leaves that had never left their iron home after falling before winter. The temperature quickly dropped, breathing hints of the snow that was to follow down on us. We waited until the coals lay softly and the fire had nearly gone out and then together we layed the tin foil down and then the hot dogs.
Katie joined us, too.
We had pineapple, chips and hot dogs, and somehow it was the best impromtu barbecue in the world.
Tonight, we sat at airport, and now he’s on a plane home. We got 75 degrees and then snow, and it was one of the best weekends of the year.
