Day 8 of Operation Beach Body – 10 day whole body cleanse, and it’s time to warm up the relievers.
Harvard Square in Cambridge, MA is a fun and interesting place. Shopping, restaurants…it’s an epicenter of knowledge, teeming with diversity. My eldest child is taking a summer course, and tonight we trekked the family down Storrow Drive and onto the grounds of Harvard University’s hallowed halls. We found a parking space (not an easy feat, but a great SNIPE by yours truly,) bought the books, then nestled ourselves into a great little spot outside on a wall so that we could do some serious people watching. Oh, and I could watch my family savor every bite of an Upper Crust pizza.

I want something that really crunches when you bite into it, like pizza crust crunches. That’s what I want.” BUT…I was as good as gold and stuck to my guns. There is one thing I do have to say though:
“Call in the closer coach, ‘ cause I’m almost done.”
