Last weekend I went with buddy Michelle to Chicago!
She wanted to visit her brother and his family so we split a getaway package trip thingy. We stayed in the Swissotel where I annoyed everyone with my search for Nazi Gold.
I didn't find any, but I did find one of my clients with her wife at the hotel bar! This client works across the street from me in Minneapolis. Geesh, we could've met at Donnie Dirks and saved some ozone...
Their baby was safe upstairs, but Michelle's toddler nephew was in my crazy Auntie Jaime clutches. You can tell he's a toddler by the scab. All toddlers faceplant concrete before family visits. It's a fact.
We ate at a place called Tank Noodle that was excellent. I ordered 'Baby Pho' which was 'only' the size of a regular cereal bowl. Smart move so I could finish off this red snapper! Smile, Snappy!
We went to Millennium Park and walked off a bunch of fine dining. Here's the famous Bean:
And here's me flicking it:
And Michelle flicking it to make me shut the hell up about it:
Later at the Lego store Michelle found herself a cowboy. Silly girl, you go WEST for one, not EAST!
Maybe Chicago could be my next town to live in that's in the Midwest. I could get a job although my writing and train-driving skills are terrible.
I could get this fixer-upper although apparently you gotta know the right people (working on it).
Or I could build on this vacant lot we found.
And I wouldn't be at a loss for a good time.
Shoot, I even got a new friend to sing with me!
This would lead me closer to fulfilling a life-long dream, and you KNOW what that is: to recreate the Perfect Strangers intro shot for shot!
Now as the Mayor of Chicago might say, fuck off!
