Pack the bags

I thought my Friday would consist of getting up late, watching the rest of season 1 and beginning season 2 of my summer review of The O.C., watching the Shark Tank reruns on my DVR, and battling the computer at chess. I also thought about getting a trip to Topeka or Manhattan in to go to Hy-Vee.

Lisa Toebben changed those plans shortly after 2.

She sends me a message on Facebook, asking if I would be at Buffalo Wild Wings for her final day of work there. She and Jeff are moving to Chicago so they can each start new jobs.

I immediately said yes, and that I would be there for opening at 11 a.m.

I thought I would go to Kansas City for the July 4 weekend and see everyone for a few days, go home for a couple of days, then return in time to attend Brittany’s wedding reception July 11.

Fortunately, those plans were flexible,and thus I will be on my way to KC before sunrise.

I had a wonderful session with Crista. We discussed Renetta Rogers and the origins of our relationship, which began 11 years ago Thursday. I also brought her some action photos and some of the selfies I took last week. She thought Brittany was beautiful. Crista also told me I was fortunate to have people like Brittany, LIz and the others who care about me.

It won’t take much to pack. I really haven’t unpacked since getting home Sunday. At least this time Starbucks in Junction City will be appropriate.

About David

I am a sportswriter for a group of weekly newspapers in small towns across northern Kansas. I grew up in New Orleans, went to college at LSU and wandered in the wilderness until Hurricane Katrina finally put me on the path to my current job.
