I’m currently in Seattle for a good friend from college’s wedding, which has been great so far. I love seeing people happy. Earlier this week, we were emailing back and forth on plans for the three days I’m spending out here and other such necessities. Part of this exchange has not stopped me from laughing, and I really need to share.
blah blah blah (rest of the email)
And I can search online for where to watch the NU game (as I’m assuming it’s not on “normal” tv this week, especially not in Seattle!).
I’m not sure. I think the Seattle alumni club is pretty well defunct. I haven’t been to any events with them in awhile. I’m not sure there’s an NU bar anymore.
I’ll try other means, thanks. Hey — if we go warm weather and if I can get sufficient tickets, would you go bowling with us or no chance? And IF is a big statement right now, I know, but Tempe is a possibility….
Ask me about Tempe in 10 days… I say YES of course but (future wife) will say AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! I think bowling is very unlikely for me this weekend. I’m thinking about maybe going flying on Friday am. Any interest?
Screeeech! Wait, what? I never mentioned bowling this weekend. I mentioned Tempe and bowling together, and he has them totally separated. I’m talking about football. I’m talking about Northwestern. I’m talking about warm weather bowling and Tempe. I didn’t realize I was making too huge a leap for someone who drove from Chicago to Pasadena to go to the Rose Bowl in 1996. Apparently the intervening 12 years have been difficult on his memory.
I did clear up the confusion in the next email, while only poking a small amount of fun at him for thinking I wanted to go pins and balls bowling with him on the weekend of his wedding. The good news is that it sounds like he’s totally in, assuming we go to a bowl he’s interested in. The Motor City Bowl may not exactly be his cup of tea. Here’s hoping we put Michigan and Illinois in the win column.
As a side note, yes, he really meant flying like airplane flying. His plane. He has his pilot’s license and typically meets me for vacations by flying on his own there. I’m not at all jealous of him though, I swear.
So would you have figured out that I was talking about going to a bowl game, or was I being too hard on him? Either way, I’m still giggling about it. And it’s six days later.
