1. Watch Ethan sing at his high school "coffee house" event.
2. Rent a big-ass Chevy pick-up truck, the kind men in Iowa drive.
3. Pretend it's still summer by going rafting. Eat hot dogs and frozen candy bars. Be the only ones on the river except for a trio of hardy kayakers.
4. Get pumpkins on the way home. Put 'em in the back of your pick-up. Put your wet swim trunks back there too, and when you get back to the city, wonder what happened to them.
5. Eat Domino's with Ethan on Sunday night and be creative.
