Last week, padre was in north Georgia for work. He gave me a head’s up that he might could talk his coworkers into driving to Seneca to eat supper and that I’d be welcome to join. So I worked ahead and made sure I was ready for the text that he’d be coming to town.
As it turned out, nobody came with him because “Ole puddin’ will just go where ever you want to go.”
I’m not real sure how I wound up with that nickname…
Anyway, Dad picked me up from my apartment, just like any gentleman would, except that is was in this:
I dubbed it the Super Juke. (If Nissan steals that, you totally read it here first!)
Instead of some fancy place, I opted for Olde Towne Pizza Buffet right down the road from my apartment. I knew they had Barq’s root beer and it’s been a long while since I had pizza and root beer with my dad — a Sunday night staple of my entire childhood.
So maybe not the fanciest of dates, but the company (and the car) made up for it. How lucky am I that, in the middle of the week, I get to spend time with my family? Being far away is no fun sometimes, but it’s wonderful to know my family will go the extra mile to come see me when they’re in the area.
We also like to compete to see who can be more awkward at taking photos of said date.
Saturday was girls’ night in Greenville with Kayla and Mary. We ate at Rey’s before the Lady Antebellum concert. Both were wonderful, and so was the company. Kayla had just finished maternity leave after having Jake, so this weekend was a much-needed distraction from the impending doom of Monday. But she made it through just fine :)
I have the next two Fridays off work (hallelujah!) and will be spending Friday morning – Monday afternoon with Cooper and his parents. But mostly Coop. The following weekend I’ll be splitting time between more Cooper, a wedding in Bowling Green and a visit to Nashville.
Good thing I love road trips — and that SC has such cheap gas prices!
I shall leave you with the latest chalkboard update. It’s lyrics from a Mumford and Sons song — this weather is perfect for their music.
