#ThrowBackThursday Haiku Fun

Disneyland July 2015

The above photo from our trip to Disneyland celebrating Gretchen’s 8th grade graduation popped up in my Facebook memories this morning; I posted it. Then I realized Gretchen was wearing a Captain America t-shirt and I was wearing an Ironman t-shirt. When I logged onto Twitter and saw the #haikuchallenge word is charge, I knew I could have some fun with a throwback haiku. I even made sure to check the photo was taken before the Civil War movie.

Gretchen and I were up bright and early yesterday for her final high school registration. She is all set to begin her senior year. Between her class fees and purchasing her senior yearbook, senior year is already costing Mom and Dad a pretty penny. It’s hard to believe we’ll be looking to celebrate her high school graduation in less than a year.

In the spring of ’94, I went to Boston with my friend, Rick. We toured the city, went whale watching and then walked around Harvard and got lost. When we were in Boston, I wanted to check out Cheers. My husband (fiancĂ© at the time) said it was tiny compared to the set they used for the TV show. Rick and I were under 21 and he wouldn’t go over to the bar with me. Because they did use the exterior for shots on the show, it was popular, crowded and had bouncers at the entrance. I went down to the door, was asked for my ID, told the guy I was under 21 and just wanted to see in the bar. He let me in. Wow! Shawn was right there was no room in the bar at all. Not only is it super small, but it was crowded. I was amazed the bouncers didn’t stop people from entering for fire code reasons. It looked like everyone at the door was gaining entrance even the 20 year old, who took a quick peek and exited fast.
