Tires, spirits inflated

I had a very very bad morning after I left my house. I thought for a while I was going to be stuck at Hays Chevrolet all day waiting for my tire to get fixed. I was upset at Dad for suggesting it. I actually took a long nap on the floor, waking up just before 11.

Fortunately, just after 11, the tire was fixed and I was on my way. It cost $26 to get the tire patched and fill all four with nitrogen. Filled up with gas in Hays, and the drive to Kansas City took right at four hours, with a stop at Starbucks in Junction City. I passed on Burger King both in Hays and Abilene, although it was tempting. Probably a good thing, since I have some appetite now at Buffalo Wild Wings.

Back in the bar area, sitting at my usual booth with Lisa Toebben, one of my favorite people in the world right now. Liz isn’t working tonight, but that’s not a big deal. I saw Brittany Mathenia-Tucker before she left; the other Brittany is in California this weekend.

It figures to be kind of slow tonight at Buffalo Wild Wings, since the Chiefs don’t play until 6 p.m. Central tomorrow. Tonight’s live game on NFL Network is Ravens-Cowboys at 6. The Royals play at Minnesota.

My teams are also on the road. The Arizona Cardinals play the Vikings at the University of Minnesota, the home of the Purple People for the next two seasons while their new stadium at the former site of the Metrodome is built, and the Milwaukee Brewers play game two of their series against the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine. Clayton Kershaw goes for Los Angeles. Not expecting a win, but that comeback last night–2-0 down through seven before scoring five in the eighth and going on to win 6-3–was a salve for what should happen in a few hours.

Liz just texted me. She’s going to cash my tip checks tonight. I’m glad I could help her. I’m a little low on the bank account now, but I’ve got a $1,300 expense check to deposit, and I get paid Friday, so it’s all good.
