And what an eventful day it was!
I took Chris to the T this morning, stopped and got a few breakfast items, and came home and made breakfast.
Then I left and met Chris downtown for lunch. Some of her friends couldn’t make our engagement party — with lame excuses like “we are in Michigan” and “we were so exhausted we couldn’t move” — so we had some celebratory lunch meatballs and poutine.
But I decided it was a good idea to park at the casino and walk to her office. It’s 1.5 miles, which is no problem, right?
After lunch, I had four hours to kill, so I walked to Duquesne, my alma mater. I went to the Starbucks on campus and thought things like, “If they have this on campus, they probably don’t need my money.”
But I won $20 playing blackjack, and later I made it rain twenties in the car. Because I’m cool like that.
Anyway, Chris and I went to see a wedding venue tonight and absolutely loved it. It will be difficult to top. And true to form, we got lost on our way there. Another accidental tour of a Pittsburgh neighborhood one or both of us didn’t know existed.
Then in the drive-through, I told the woman that we didn’t need ketchup because “we have some at home.” Chris is still laughing at that…even though I think it’s a perfectly acceptable response.
All in all, a productive day with a crap-ton of walking. Good — I needed to work off that bacon!
