This morning, I went to the gym and worked out. I had to push myself to go. I wanted to hang out all day. It was the start of a long weekend and I was in no mood to go to the gym.
When I arrived to the gym, the treadmill section as packed which totally throw off my routine. I got on the elliptical, until the treadmill section emptied. I only stayed on the elliptical for 4 mins. I hopped off, and wiped the machine down and grabbed my things and approached an empty treadmill.
I was finishing up my High Intensity Interval training, when a woman came up next to me on my right hand side and made a face. It was my friend Erin! I was so happy to see her. She hopped on the gazelle machine that was next to me. I can’t tell you the last time I saw Erin. She told me that she is buying a house, her and her girlfriend have been together for 2 years, and that things are going well. I gave her my updated number and told her about graduate school and how busy that has kept me. She said, she understood she watched her sister go through it. We promised to get together for drinks and she wants to have Drew and I over when they move into their new home in November. 🙂
After talking with Erin, I did the strength training machines and then it was time for me to go home. I went home and started to organize the garage and get rid of somethings. We use our garage as storage unit, because neither one of our cars fit into the garage. I found some memorabilia of my high school years and even some things from CCAC (Community College of Allegheny County). Drew came home from the chiropractor, and helped me take things to the garbage. I took my memorabilia into the house, and set it in the basement.
Afterwards, I got a shower, and then we got ready to go to Walmart. One would thing Walmart on Memorial Day weekend would be a mistake, but it actually wasn’t too packed. I had to pick up a veggie tray for Monday, we were going to his Aunt and Uncle’s for a cookout, and I needed to make macaroni salad for Ben and Tricia’s tomorrow. We were going over to meet Samuel, their youngest.
When we got home, we put our things away, and then left to go meet Drew’s friend TJ and John at Wings Suds and Spuds. When we arrived, TJ and John were on their way. At one point, in walked this guy who was tan, but not naturally tan, like sunless tanner type tan with a v-neck (I think it was grey), white ankle length sweat pants, white shoes, and for some reason he reminded me of Miami Vice. He had a brown beaded bracelet on and a flashy watch. When he smiled, his teeth looked so white and so bright, because he was tan. The hostess sat him at a table for 7. He kept looking back at me and Drew. I caught him a few times trying to make eye contact with me.
Finally, TJ and John walked in. We hugged and said, hi! Then the tan guy with the white ankle pants, approached us and said hi to TJ and John. TJ introduced the tan guy. His name is Jeff. Jeff introduced himself to Drew and I. Tan Jeff said he went to Rhema. Rhema is a christian school. Drew, John, and Tan Jeff apparently all went to Rhema together. It dawned on me then that Tan Jeff was a part of our table for 7.
At the table, we ordered drinks, wings, and fries. At first, we talked about Waffles, Tommy and Megan’s dog (Tommy is Drew’s brother), who went missing, but was found. Tan Jeff was unfamiliar with the story. John asked me to tell Tan Jeff the story of Waffles. As I was telling the story, Tan Jeff looked as though he didn’t really care, but he listened anyway and at the end, said that is cool.
At one point, I was lost in the sea of guy talk; Drake is the new Spike Lee, Steelers, Ben Roethlisberger; will he stay or won’t he, and a little bit of Pitt sports. I just kept eating my wings and nodding my head.
After most of us were finished eating, Tan Jeff said his goodbyes, he was off to meet up with a girl. TJ teased him and said, but I am not finished eating, and you are leaving. Tan Jeff said his fair-wells and was out the door.
When we all got up to leave, I said, goodbye to TJ and John. We walked outside to the car, Drew and I shared a laugh at the expense of Tan Jeff. We drove home and sat outside for a little while before heading to bed.
All-in-all I survived wing night with the guys.
