I’m sure it’s very apparent that I really enjoy socializing and being in the presence of others as much as possible.
I’m afraid of the voices in my head, if I’m being honest.
So when several of my closest friends moved away (all to different parts of the world) within months of each other, I shed more than one tear.
Luckily, they all come visit whenever they can, including Colleen, who was in town for work last week.
Colleen lives all the way across the country in LA and our reunions are much too few and far between.
Lucky for me, Colleen brought another friend into my life before she up and left us- Chrissy.
We like Chrissy.
And we like $5 sandwich night at Black Rock Pub & Kitchen. Which happens to be Tuesdays, incidentally.
Know what else I like? Buffalo chicken. Melty blue cheese. Pretzel bun.
No, really. Remember that whole ode to the potato I posted recently?
It’s deep and it’s real.
It’s also why my grocery list for tonight looks a little like this:
Errr…yeah, that last one. Still a potato, huh?
Maybe I should just call them yams?
But in all honesty, there’s not a whole lot better than good food with great friends, and those tots really just sealed the deal for me. Plus, they softened the harsh fact that those dinners happen too infrequently.
Maybe if Colleen moved back to Chicago I could kick the tot habit for good.
It was worth a shot.
