So anyway, we decided to a break one day and head over to the Museum of Contemporary Art. If you're a big fan or art, then there's a chance that you may or may not like some of the things that are on display at the MCA.
So let's begin with the narrative of our day:
Here's Livia getting herself pretty for the day. That's what she calls it anyway. I call it trying to make herself even more pretty than she already is. She doesn't need all that face paint!
And we made it to the museum of interesting stuff! As there is no photography allowed inside, this is where we experience a hiatus in the sequential progression of the day...
On the way back from the MCA, we notice that there is a Hershey's store on the corner. You'll never guess what the view is like from the entrance of the Hershey's store...
Yep, that's a Ghiradelli. It's like 1820 in Palmyra, NY. Only, instead of protestant churches on every corner, we are now experiencing an unfolding of chocolate retail entities that are bidding for the business of pedestrians.
Inside the Hershey's store is dreadfulness that far surpasses anything that the avant-guard art students would dream of throwing at you...
For example, a candy bar that weighs in at 5lbs. This thing measures like from my waist to my shoulders.
If that's not enough, try some chocolate syrup that's weighed by the kilo. These bottles are actually bigger than most newborn babies.
And then there's a castle in downtown Chicago. Go figure. So that was more or less our day. It was a bit cold that day (especially considering that it was a month into spring already), but at least I wasn't studying. As Gerrison Keiller says, "we just figure that it could be worse, and it probably will get worse, so we're all just bracing ourselves for that moment..."
