Thursday: I went to the Chris Tomlin / Matt Redman concert. Beth, Scott and I had our picture taken by someone before the show, and during the concert, they showed a ton of pictures they had taken, and ours appeared. It was awesome! What a great picture, too. It’s too bad they delete the pictures after the show.
Friday: Went to Subway with Courtney and Mary. They were playing country music and I mentioned that I don’t really listen to country music, ever. And Mary said that she can barely stand it, or something of that nature. Anyway, there was a lull in the conversation, and suddenly I noticed Mary was swaying back and forth very slightly. And when I looked at her, she stopped and had this big smile on her face. I leaned over and “whispered” to Courtney: “Mary just realized she was dancing to country music.” Mary started laughing so hard she left the room.
We played some tennis and went went to Rick’s for the Cornhole tournament and Movie night. Courtney, Mary and I built a fire in the backyard, and the movie for the night was Tommy Boy.
Saturday: Adoration, Mass and Confession at St. Francis de Sales, followed by an evening at Topo’s and watching Garden State and some of The Office.
Dwight: “Let me describe the perfect date: I take her out to a nice dinner. She looks amazing. Some guy tries to hit on her..eh.. Now he wants to fight. So I grab him, I throw him into a jukebox. Then the other ninja’s got a knife. He comes at me, we grapple, I turn his knife on him, blood on the dancefloor. She’s scared now, I take her home, I’m holding her in my arms. I reach in for a kiss, I hear something in the leaves..I flip her around, she gets a poison arrow right in her back. She was in on it the whole time..but I knew.”
Sunday: Went to Antioch, the talks were pretty amazing. It’ll be great to see how Joe’s and Pat’s both come together on the retreat. Kari’s was outstanding, as were Paula’s and Ashley’s the week before. I’m looking forward to all the rest as well.
Yesterday, I watched School of Rock because Jill had just watched it and I thought, man I haven’t seen that in a long time, and that is a great movie. Then I went to my dad’s to help him set up his new VCR, and what did he have on? School of Rock!
On my way to Roy’s, I stopped at Subway. The dude at the counter was pretty cool. We started joking around, and he mentioned that his mom only has one leg. He said that a co-worker didn’t believe him and called his dad and said “How many legs does your wife have?” and he was pretty mad about that, but his mom does get around and is a real trooper. I mentioned that my dad only has one hand, and that I understood the situation of disbelief and stuff. It was quite a fun conversation.
Last night at Antioch, we were all exhausted. I was tired from Wednesday in South Bend, and everyone else was pretty tired from many other things. What a crazy day, huh.
