So for the first time since it began in 2002, I did not participate in Free Comic Book Day.
I really hadn't kept up with the event. There was some hype last week, but then suddenly on Saturday it seemed like every blog out there that I read was talking about FCBD.
I remained strong, and Jennifer and I went for a bike ride to Piedmont to check out a local bead store. And for those not in the know, one of the best comic book stores in the SF Bay Area is located on Piedmont: Dr. Comics and Mr. Games. And the route we took T-ed us right on Piedmont at the store.
I have to admit that at that point, I was tempted. However, I remained strong. There really wasn't any reason to go in.
And instead, after the bead shop, we hit a new burger restaurant called Sparky's. And while we were there, we watched the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby. That had to be the wettest track I'm ever seen for the Derby. Jennifer noted that all the horses were the same color by the end of the race. At least from the front.
