During our trip to Annapolis, my husband and I did a bunch of tourist-type things, like the 40-minute boat cruise around Annapolis harbor and the ghost walking tour. We also ate crabs. Lots and lots of crabs.

Now, being a Massachusetts girl, I love lobster. It took me nearly forever to recognize the existence of crabs except perhaps for Mr. Krabs. I didn’t quite understand Old Bay Seasoning. I mean, what the what. I don’t gets it.

Then, something magical happened.

I realized that I liked crabs. Them pinchies are delicious.

Maryland is known for their blue crabs, which comes in a hard shell and a soft shell variety. Actually, as I learned on my harbor cruise tour, they are the same crab, just different stages of crabbiness. Sorry, but I haven’t migrated over to soft shell just quite yet. Just the thought, okay?

I also loved the haunted-ness of Annapolis! Did you know that the streets were paved over a cemetery, so much that when the road construction crews do digging, they are constantly finding bodies! I wrote down a lot of notes during my tour for future scary short stories.

Happenings, I Mean Hauntings …

Make sure you tip. But maybe not a $700 tip. Unless, of course, you want to. I guess this stuff really does happen.

I’m watching The Lincoln Lawyer (the movie), and I’m reading The Lincoln Lawyer by Michael Connelley. I seriously loved the Bosch show — Titus Wellington is awesome in this show — so I wanted to read Connelley’s other books. Normally, I wouldn’t read a legal thriller from a non-attorney, but he does a good job. Only one instance so far that I’ve rolled my eyes as unbelievable. At least he does a better job at legal realism than, say, John Grisham.

I’m just going to come right out and say this. Public schools need to get their sh*t together with this coronavirus. I understand we live in strange times, but you’ve had more than six months to come up with a contingency plan. As a result, charter schools have seen a huge spike in enrollment as parents actually want their kids to learn. Parents, let me know how you are dealing with educating your children during the pandemic.
