An Evening Out

My buddy Dennis called Friday to tell me that he’s in town this week, but I misunderstood him. It turns out he’s in this part of the country (Utah/Idaho area) this week, but only in Utah until Sunday.

So today he called and I realized that if we were going to get together, I needed to drive up to Murray (about 30 minutes away). So I dropped what I was doing, and drove to Murray.

(Note: this means that Monday’s strip hasn’t been colored yet. Nor has Tuesday’s. This is a problem I’ll solve tomorrow.)

We had a great time hanging out. We didn’t do anything spectacular — just wandered around a couple of stores and ate out at Famous Dave’s Barbecue — but we had a great time nonetheless. Dennis and I served together as missionaries back in 1989 in Grand Forks, North Dakota, and he’s pretty much the ONLY person from the mission I kept in touch with. Mostly this is because we both have the same geek-oriented interests, coupled with the same twisted sense of humor.

Now that I think about it, Dennis would get along really well with Chalain. In fact, it would probably be unsafe for Dennis, Chalain, and I to get together. Unsafe for everyone within 200 meters, at least. Bad geek humor has a blast radius. We wouldn’t need anything more volatile than a good curry to clear the room, and I’m betting we could get by without that, even.

  1. Wait. You let you buffer get that low? Who are you? hehe

    oh, wait. You’re “Gotta Finish the Book Already! Tayler.” I forgot.

    Glad you got to have some time out though; there’s nothing like reconnecting with a buddy who’s known you since forever.

    Are you sure you’re still talking about geek humor? 🙂
