Every and their mudder was out o’ town on bizness last week. Wwhazz prowled the tarantula-and-near-bear-infested forests outside of Oklahoma City, while I and some co-worker pals trundled out to Mountain View, CA. I subsisted on burritos of every type until sometime on Wednesday and then branched out into the kabob-and-noodle game.
I even kicked it with GMX and watched his friend ride a mechanical bull. I lost $30: $10 on the first ride when I said he wouldn’t last 18 seconds. The operator said he started it slow the first time and that he’d get it going faster the next time around; so I bet $20 on the second ride lasting less than 15 seconds and damned if he didn’t hold on. Shots were taken, and later on GMX tried to cut a piece of pizza in half with a book. He later used said book as a plate as well. Take that, random hotel literature.
ALAS: I cannot come on the UP trip. It simply will not work out with my current work project to be gone for so long this month. Apologies, friends. Next time! Maybe Cal could take my spot?
