What the... I'm Back? And Other Skyway Tales
So, I may have jumped the gun a little my previous post. I am back, but so freaking busy that it is hard to find time to write in the blogging world. A sincere shout out (you don't often hear of shout outs anymore) and apology to my fans.
As I put it to one of my friends, I am like Prince's vault of music. I have so much to write about, all I have to do is dust off some of my thoughts, and away we go.
And away we go...
The skyway. What an interesting culture. Yes, I said culture. Seriously. You don't have to go outside and it just winds on endlessly. Each day I venture a little bit further to see what is out there. One day I looked out at this beautiful park and thought, WOW! I should eat out there! But no, I stayed in the skyway. There are restaurants of all types (but more chinese places than you can shake a stick at), convenience stores (I really should be playing the lotto more), shoe shiners, hair salons, and even a locksmith!
Ahhh, but my story today is about how I found, what appears to be, a relative from a previous CFUNKYTHOUGHTS posting. You know the one - The "What you want!?" episode? C'mon, I know you read it like a bajillion times (not quite as much as a cajillion). Well, there is a particular restaraunt in the skyway where the food is great and you are greated with a loud, "What you want!?" every time. But of course, my thought process takes this one step further. Of course, the woman behind the counter is thinking, "What you want fat white boy? This your third time here this week - we don't sell anything to help you lose weight!" And with a great big smile, I say, I will have fried rice, an egg roll and whatever that fatening stuff is. And the response? We all out of fried rice fat white boy! Nice. But I got the last laugh. I waited. Yea, I was late for work, but I waited. And yes, the rice tasted funny, but at least they were laughing behind my back as I headed across the way to get a 24 oz diet Mountain Dew for the price of a 20oz Dew. So economical. I even bought a bus pass. Just if I rode the bus.
Till next time... Just wait for Skyway Tales volume 2. Typically released each Tuesday.
PS - I would like to rescind an earlier comment made this year poking fun at the Detroit Tigers. They have proved everyone wrong, including myself and have proved they are a solid club. Nice job boys. Keep up the good work, but if you have to throw it so the Twins can move on, so be it.
