Cookin' with the Oldies

I seem to have a knack for hunting down activities that attract the older generation. I have been desperately trying to find something to fill my days here since I am jobless and friendless, and I happened to discover that community college classes in California are free! On a whim, I signed up for "time saving cooking" thinking that I need all the help I can get and maybe it would be a good place to make friends. So I spent four hours in class today, chopping veggies for the most delicious black bean and corn salsa in the world and listening to conversations about grandchildren and hip replacements. I was the youngest person in there by (at least) 40 years. I suppose the only people with four hours to spare on a Thursday morning are retirees. Oh well. It was actually still really fun and I am not opposed to hanging out with senior citizens. :)

Hey Cousin Laura, Thanks for the Birthday cookies! What a fun surprise, and so delicious! Wouldn't mind trying the corn and bean salsa as well :) Sounds like a fun class.

Hey "friendless"? What am I-chopped liver? :) That sounds awesome! Glad it worked out and I wish you could come to the beach tomorrow!

That is hilarious! If I lived there Cal and I would be all over that cooking class with you!

We are HUGE Seinfeld fans ... it actually becomes very distracting because every instance in our lives reminds us of a Seinfeld episode! I hope you are enjoying California! I would give my left arm to be there and hang out on the beach : ) xox
