bad decision

This is the man I should've met today: New York Yankee Johnny Damon. I spent an amazing weekend at the Jersey Shore with a big group of friends, but decided to head home last night versus today.

In doing so, I was able to enjoy Memorial Day free of traffic and hours on the road. I went to the gym, laid out by my pool, had lunch on the Waterfront, made a gourmet dinner for my roommate (who will be moving next week), and had a dance party in my living room. (My roommates and I attempted to teach our fourth roommate how to "get down".)

But in going home early, I totally missed Johnny! My friend's step-brother plays for the Orioles, used to play for the Red Sox, and is therefore friends with Johnny Damon. On the drive back to D.C., the girls stopped at her brother's house to hang out and Johnny came home with him (from the game) to attend a neighbor's BBQ! A-Rod was on his way, as well, but my cute Yankee-loving friend said she couldn't handle staying for the BBQ due to her now-sweaty armpits and inability to speak!

I love the Yankees, so I am kicking myself right now! (I DID meet Derek Jeter a couple years ago, but a "hang out" it was not!)

Johnny Damon was my baseball boyfriend when he played for the Red Sox and if I heard he was going to be at a BBQ nearby I would have turned that car around immediately ;)
