I like the leisurely pace of baseball games. The baseball stadium is the American equivalent of a Parisian cafe, where you can sit outside and talk and just relax for as long as you fancy.
And people watch. Oh, how I love to people watch! I would like to introduce the MVP from Wednesday night's People Watching Extravaganza. This is Bertrand the Cotton Candy Man:
Okay, fine, I don't know what his name actually is, but it should be Bertrand. Bertrand obviously is a member of a barbershop quartet, but did you know he collects vintage postcards, runs marathons and owns a pet turtle?
I wish I could have bought some cotton candy from Bertrand. Look how fluffy and pink it is! But the last time I had stadium cotton candy, I was at a UCLA Bruins football game with my Dad, and I still have bad flashbacks to that sugar rush.
Important rule of thumb: you can photograph the cotton candy, but never ever eat more than a wisp. It's probably best to just smell the cotton candy for a moment and then eat a big bowl of kale. Just looking at these photos makes me feel a little ill. Excuse me, I need to go find some green veggies.
