Russell ready

I was all packed up and ready to go back to the room last night, but then Brittany and Lisa showed up with their significant others. Lisa said she was coming, but I didn’t think she would because of the rain, and if she didn’t, it would have been fine with me, because I would have understood with the weather. Brittany wasn’t supposed to come, because she had tickets to the Royals-Orioles game, but since that got washed out, she had the time to come.

Lisa was a little tipsy. She kept begging me to take a shot, but I kept saying no. Brittany tried telling her that I couldn’t take a shot, because I had to drive back to my hotel, and then back to Russell today. I promised Lisa another night when I didn’t have a lot of work and driving to do.

I would stay tonight, but I’ve got to get home. The Mid-Continent League volleyball tournament has been expanded to Thursday and Saturday at Smith Center. Add in the stuff for Russell tomorrow and the football game Friday, I need to go home. Also, I want to get out of here before the huge crowds for the Royals game tonight. Good excuse.
