I’mma cominna get you, Florida!
I know it seems like I just got back from Chicago a minute ago (I totally did, just two nights ago!), but there’s no rest for the wicked, I believe is how the saying goes. Especially in the summer time. I never like to sit around NYC in the summer months and I’m glad for any chance to run off to someplace more exciting for a bit.
So next up: Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida! This is a double whammy trip, that’s mostly just an excuse to see my mom for her birthday next weekend. She’s a pride weekend baby, and St. Pete has their big pride festivities scheduled for this weekend. I’m sure I’ll be out in the hot hot sun with the moms on Saturday/Sunday for the parade and whatever else they do. With luck, much of it will be someplace air conditioned.
But before then, I’ll be in Tampa for a few days on a pretend vacation with a beautiful suite near the beach and Westshore Plaza (which was referred to as the “good mall” when I was in high school). But if you can think of more fun things to do than go to the mall or wait till it gets dark and go to the beach (I can’t be out in beach-level sunlight! Who are you kidding?), I’d love to hear from you.
And if you won’t be near Tampa or Florida at all while I’m there, please to enjoy anyway, a quick game of:

I’m lookin forward to you, Tampa. Don’t let me down! ??
