Lounging Under a Tree

Call me a hippie, but I like nature. I like being outside. One of my favorite things to do on days off is hanging out in Golden Gate Park with a couple of friends and a couple of brews. We will post up under a tree, throw a blanket on the ground, put on some music, and hang out until we feel like moving on. I’ll lie on my back and watch the sunlight filter through the leaves and the clouds move across the sky. I’ll track leaves as they fall from the branch and gently float towards the grass. I’ll sit up every once in a while to sip my beer without it dribbling down my chin. I’m not opposed to puffing the green stuff either. It makes lounging under a tree even more chill. You’re missing out if you’ve never hung out under a tree. It’s one of the easiest things to cross off your bucket list. All you have to is find a tree and hang out under it. If you can’t find satisfaction in that, you’re not a person I want to know.

Getting a Frisbee Stuck in a Tree

It’s fun to throw a Frisbee around in the park. But parks have trees and occasionally Frisbees get stuck in them. They are practically designed to get snagged by branches and stuck on a limb. You’ll spend a few minutes scanning the leaves before you spot the disc. If climbing the tree is out of the question, you’ll have to resort to throwing rocks, pinecones, sticks, water bottles, anything you can get your hands on. You’ll go caveman on the tree for a few minutes before someone knocks it down or everyone gives up. It sucks losing a Frisbee to a tree because it’s not even lost. You know exactly where it is. You just can’t get it. And it’s up there taunting you, mocking your athletic ability. You have failed and now your failure is on display for everyone to see.
