Maryland is the only state with an official sport: jousting. And Edgar Allan Poe lived (for a time) married his cousin and was buried in Maryland. I know, exciting stuff. Maryland, I’m stoked to be heading your way this morning. Guys on horses and guys kissin’ cousins. What more could one want for the weekend?
Seriously, I am excited about this trip, but not because of jousting or a museum for a dead writer guy. I’m headed to a church that is throwing a party for Compassion International. Essentially, that’s what it is. It’s an outdoor festival-style event, tickets are sold, bands play, and the money goes to support a Child Survival Project.
