Day 2 - Tennis Anyone?

One of my goals in life is to fulfill every dream of my wife, as i am sure all you husbands have. Allison has always dreamt of going to Wimbledon so that meant i need to do everything in my power to get her there. Boy did i pull through. Early on the second day we took the tube out to Wimbledon and queued (waited in line) with about 3000 other people. We got in for around 18 bucks. Boy that was a cheap dream to fulfill i thought. I wish they were all that easy. We watched Mary Pierce, Federer, Roddick, Marsha Goldfine's brother (Andy's coach), Navratilova, Demintieva, Myskina, Davenport, Clijsters. After I had fallen asleep on the lawn outside the tennis court Allison realized that i had had enough tennis for a year or two so we left. Next we were off to the bus to take us to Paris (10 hour overnighter). Yeah i know it is the cheap way but i figured i could get away with almost anything after fulfilling a dream of hers. So as you would guess very little sleep on the crowded bus. Its all about the experience and getting in with the locals right?
