Haven’t left yet

I’ve now been at Buffalo Wild Wings for 10 hours, nearly a record on a weekday. I had another order of 12 wings tonight, and now I can leave whenever I want, but I might get in another round or two of trivia, since I only have a five-minute drive back to the hotel.

I was miffed earlier this evening when someone turned off the music because I wanted to hear “Feels So Good” by Chuck Mangione. The instrumental was a top five hit for the Fluegelhorn player in 1978, but Generation X–myself included–knows him from the animated show King of the Hill, where he was the spokesman for Mega Lo Mart, the fictionalized version of Wal-Mart in Arlen, Texas. Mangione actually provided his own voice and played the fluegelhorn.

Raymie Lepetit, another of my favorite servers at BUffalo Wild Wings, saw me tonight and was overjoyed. I hadn’t seen her in a while, so it was another thing to go right.

I wont’ be leaving Kansas City until Friday morning. My father will be in the hospital until then.
