Our modern vernacular does not include words like "radical" and "foxy". Remember these? I was talking to my girls the other day when we were doing something and I used "radical" in our conversation, Ali laughed. I thought I knew why, I thought it was because she had never heard that kind of expression. But really it was that she was so shocked that I would say that. For her the expression was so "old" and right up there with "gnarly". I think she was embarrassed for me even though jit was just us. I was with Carina a yound friend of the families one day, and she used the word "foxy". My jaw dropped...there's only one place she could have learned that...(her dad!). Don't get me wrong proper language skills are a priority too...but it's always funny when our kids throw one of these old school slang words out. It's kind of like hearing a one year old say "WOW". Our good brother Tom was over last night and defined "radical" as...anything that deviates from the norm in a significant way. Spot on!
So... if you are looking for a out of the norm- in a significant way- "radical $50 date", start by visiting the Philadelphia's Magic Gardens on South Street across from Whole Foods. Parking will cost $3 for two hours. We were there for an hour and a half. Entrance is $5 per person.
If your reading this from Norway, Idaho or any of our other beloved places, we KNOW you'll be in Philly one day, so we just had to give you this "radical $50 date" tip.
