Springtime in the Rockies

It's April 17th. I thought it would be safe to put my winter coats away. I thought wrong.

Birthday Surprise

"So, what time are we meeting?" I ask.

"We're meeting on the North side of town at 6:00 pm." She replies, with a slight smile.

"What should I wear?"

"Something comfy."

"Like jeans? Or sweats?"

"Ummmm...sweats. I was planning on wearing yoga pants." Keep in mind, Alice wears yoga pants approximately 82% of the time seeing as how she is a yoga instructor and likes to be comfy when she's not being twisty.

My thoughts were racing. I knew my friends were planning a birthday surprise, but I had no idea what it could be. What sort of activity could take place on the North side of town that would require me to wear something comfy?

"Are we going to be in public? Or just by ourselves?"

"In public" she says. I knew that was the end of the curious as I am, I didn't want her to actually give away the surprise.

Rock climbing? Ice skating? Flag football? Capture the flag? Yoga? The possibilities are endless!

Today I get a gchat from Scott in which he tells me, "make sure to bring two pairs of socks!" Ummm...2 pairs of socks? Whiskey tango foxtrot?? That rules out rock climbing and yoga. Also seems a little unnecessary for any sort of activity involving a flag or skating (though, Scott can be a bit of a germaphobe and perhaps the extra pair of socks is for changing into before putting back on my own shoes?). He also tells me to wear a "track suit" which I don't own because I'm not a Russian teenaged hoodlum.

So, dear friends, as a birthday present to me, any ideas about what might be taking place tonight?? Brainstorm!! Be creative!! Closest to the truth (besides those who already know) will win a prize :)
