Day 14 – Delaware, office exchanges
I play tackle football twice a year. Thanksgiving with my buddies from high school. Founder’s Day weekend with my fraternity brothers. Founder’s Day is a mere 6 weeks away. I can not wait. I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day (assuming I’m not traveling), my apartment is the size of one of my bedrooms growing up, and I live among 6 million people in the most densely populated city in the country. A little contact football might do me some good.
It’s fun, but I rarely go to Delaware anymore. It has lost most of its attraction to me. If I want to drink cheap beer at a crowded dive bar, I’ll go to the Stumble Inn. That and I’m ten years older than a lot of the people there. I spent my four and a half years there. That was plenty. Of course, when I’m down there on Feb. 27th all bets are off. Football and then my first night of drinking in 2 months. I’m glad 23 oz. beers are only $2.25 in Delaware.
It will be great to see everyone, but with the advent of facebook, I already know what’s going on in most people’s lives. That just means less time catching up and more time drinking and enjoying ourselves and that’s just fine by me.
I was walking down the hallway of my office, I saw someone I know
“Hey Andrew, how are you”
“Good, and you?”
“I”m good. Have a nice day”
I have that exchange 10 times a day. I roll my eyes every time.
