Friday morning, Kev offered to drive. Due to some weird messages on a couple of my birthday cards and some odd statements from conversations, I had a feeling something was going on. So, in the back of my mind, I thought "are we really going to Carmel or is something else going to happen?" With Kev offering to drive, my little antennae went waggling, but when he didn't protest when I said I'd drive, the waggling stopped.
So, I drove down to Carmel. Parked at the bottom of the hill by the beach. After two dps, I was looking for the bathroom, but Kev said that the men's bathroom by the beach was really horrible and he'd prefer to use the one further up the hill by the library. Yes, the bathrooms are grotty and I was willing to walk up to the nicer ones. It's only 5 blocks to the downtown proper from the beach, but it's straight up. Either my calves cramp up or my asthma kicks in, so I monku about that HILL. At the top, we walk over to the bathroom and I immediately head over there and I notice that Kev is walking past the bathroom. I look at him and say "aren't you going to use the benjo?" He looks away and then heads to the bathroom.
I exit the bathroom and walk up to Kev and Sean and look at what they're looking at.
There by the street are: trektone, tammy_g, sillermoon and clsinstl! Looking innocent (NOT!) Much squeeing! I had thought if they were going to pull a surprise on me, it would be at home. I thought that nothing would happen that far away. I was WRONG =)
