Day 186: Manned The Grill
Earlier today, my wife and I visited a friend's house to take my daughter swimming for the first time ever. 20 years from now, while my daughter stands on the podium at the Olympics accepting her gold medal in swimming, to think back about how she first learned to swim on the 4th of July. Luckily we were able to be in the water because it was unbearably hot outside. We are still in the midst of the heat wave that has battered the Midwest for the past week. Including humidity, today should register over 110 degrees here in Chicago. It has made the 4th of July tradition of grilling a little more difficult since no one wants to stand in front of a hot grill and flip burgers for the majority of the day. To help alleviate the pain from everyone, today, for my random act of kindness, I am going to man the grill at my friend's 4th of July cookout. We have been coming to this cookout for over 12 years now, and it is always something I look forward to every year. Thank you again to Ginny and Kevin for putting it on!
