Should have stayed

I left Buffalo Wild Wings at 8:30 last night and arrived at 1224 North Brooks at 12:15 a.m. That was a mistake I will never make again.

It wasn’t that I came home at night. That wasn’t the issue. The issue was I made the drive home on a Tuesday night, knowing I had work to get done for the Russell County News Wednesday. Getting home late put me in a somnolent mood all morning, and as it turned out, they wanted my stuff by noon.

Fail. It didn’t get done until almost 2. Now I know better. Traveling on Wednesday afternoon or Thursday is a better bet because I’m not on deadline. Friday morning is okay as long as I leave early enough to get to my destination for football, basketball or track. Saturdays? I’m only traveling TO Kansas City. Monday and Tuesday are definitely out, because those are deadline days.

I wasn’t presentable to leave the house until 4;30, and then I ate dinner with my parents for one of the few times this month. I had to make a run to Hays later, and now I’m sitting around. Not much to say about tonight, but then again, there usually isn’t much to say about a night in a town of 4,200.

Looking back, I’m glad I stayed at Buffalo Wild Wings last night until when I did. I’m glad I saw both Brittanys, I’m glad Megan got to wait on me again, I’m glad I got to beat a husband-and-wife team scheming to beat me at Buzztime. That was good. Besides, I was drained in the afternoon.
