Wow I’m tired.
1. My friend Walter. He was a blessing to me in two ways today. First of all I got a flat on the way home from work, and had no spare tire (as it turned out). Walter came and met me and helped me get the wheel off the vehicle, and drove me down to Les Schwab, waited with me, and drove me back, and helped me put it back on. The second way was this. Megan said to me on our date today “Who is your best friend in the Seattle area?” And I answered with no hesitation: “Walter!”. He and I have been meeting weekly to talk for must be over 2 years, maybe 3, now, and he is just a huge encourager and friend. You rock Walter. That went well because we met, liked each other, and stuck to it. And because I got a flat. And because Megan asked me a great question.
2. I completely and totally randomly ran into a guy I used to know 10+ years ago last night, and we said hi and exchanged phone numbers, and I’m really excited to hook up with him because he’s a kewl guy and I think he probably has a fairly crazy, wild, provocative story over the last 10 years. That went well because we ran into each other and traded phone numbers, and because I’m into the idea of a chance to hear his story.
3. I had a brilliant time with my wife on a date today. We went to dinner and a movie, and after the movie we went down to the front of the theatre and danced on the stage while the credits were rolling. That went well because she rocks and I rock and we love each other and we’re both a little crazy.
