Descending the hump

My generous side just struck again. I made a quick run from Buffalo Wild Wings to the QuikTrip on Barry Road to get pretzels for two of my favorite people, Lisa Toebben and Brittany Davidson. I got a third and gave to Raymie, one of the new girls. Lisa and Brittany suggested I eat it, but I bought two of QuikTrip’s red velvet whoopie pies for me, and I also had three pretzels yesterday, all from the QuikTrip on Johnson Drive in Merriam.

I’m not the richest person by far, but I want to do what I can for my friends. I’d rather see them happy than please myself. I’m glad I could bring a smile to their faces. I wish I had more money to do more.

The best QuikTrips in Kansas City I have discovered are on Barry Road (Northland), Johnson Drive in Merriam (to/from north to south) and State LIne Road and I-435 (south KC). The one in Bonner Springs is excellent on getaway days, although construction on I-70 west near K-7 is a hassle sometimes.

In Wichita, the one I go to almost always is on Central and Greenwich, since it has the QT kitchens for pretzels. The one at Douglas and Rock is closer to the Marriott, but it doesn’t have pretzels.

I hope Liz is feeling better. She found her wallet earlier today after losing it and her phone last night. I hope her back is better, but I know she’s feeling down after Trey Cummings’ mother passed away Monday. I heard from Nadine she and Sean Cash were both close to her.

Buzztime’s SIX was a little more difficult than usual tonight. A few questions in the final round threw me for a major loop. I finished under 39,000, my lowest score at that game in quite some time. Had a better time of it

I’m probably done eating at B-Dubs tonight. I had the spinach artichoke flatbread, which was better than usual, which is hard to do, but there were huge chunks of chicken on the flatbread and the bread itself was extra crispy, the way I like it. I don’t care for thin crust pizza, but the flatbreads at B-Dubs are pretty good.

Tomorrow I check out of the Overland Park Marriott, but I plan on appearing at Buffalo Wild Wings before I either (a) leave for Russell or (b) stay overnight and go home Friday morning. Hard decision that one. I’ve got volleyball to cover Friday, I just don’t know where yet.
