Fourth and final day of this

Friday was another very long day at Buffalo Wild Wings. And with most of my close friends working, why would I want to go back to my hotel room and spend time alone? With the room being free until tonight, I don’t feel guilty about not spending more time in the room. All it has been has been a crash pad. 

At Brittany’s suggestion, I picked up a selfie stick yesterday at Best Buy. Only cost $27 after tax. If you’ve been on my Facebook and/or Instagram (@davidsteinle) accounts, you’ll see some with Brittany, Raymie and Liz, as well as my trivia pals Robb and Dawn. 

I got to Buffalo Wild Wings at 1:15 yesterday and stayed until 11. I had to use the restroom at QuikTrip on Barry Road, which was a convenient excuse to get gas for the drive home tomorrow. 

I’m going to stay as long as I feel good today, because tomorrow, I’m driving back to Russell. My mother is cooking blackened salmon for Father’s Day, and I don’t want to miss that. I feel terrible I won’t get to see Alexandra Mullinax, who has been on vacation and comes back tomorrow, but I figure I’ll see her again at Brittany’s reception if I don’t see her before that. 

It is brutally hot out there. The heat index in Kansas City is 106 (41 Celsius). Ten degrees hotter than New Orleans. That’s brutality. And it’s going to be pushing 100 (38 Celsius) in Russell and western Kansas for the next few days. The hot weather is the reason why I want to get out of KC so early tomorrow. And why I’m going to stay late tonight. 

I’m convinced Kansas is one of the worst weather states in the U.S. You don’t have to worry about hurricanes, but tornadoes are much worse, because there is no lead time. Too hot in the summer, cold in the winter, and the wind whips your car around like nobody’s business on the open road. Missouri might be worse with the humidity, especially in the St. Louis area. Mississippi and Alabama are terrible, too.
