The social club had another happy hour tonight – they seem to do one per month. this was was in a different town, so I didn’t expect the same crowd, per Sis’s words.
The bar we went to had a live band called, i kid you not, Free Beer. They were a really good cover band. I won a free drink from them for answering a trivia question., but I gave it to Phred, because, let’s face it, it’s the least I could do for her.
I gotta admit, before going out tonight, in the back of my mind, I hoped I would see Red and SHG there. But realistically, I figured this area was a little bit out of their zone of comfort. I kinda assumed they would stick to Royal Oak, sure they were at Boo Bash, but I was trying to not get my hopes up.
To make a long story short, they were there. I saw them, after Free Beer finished their first set. I made eye contact and they came over. This did a lot to fuel my self-esteem. I didn’t even talk to them after that. I figured I’d play it cool. Phred was there to remind me that THEY approached ME. They made they point of talking to ME. Will anything ever come out of this? I don’t know. But it’s nice to be “out there playing the game” again. Especially on a night when I didn’t plan on.
You ever notice how these things tend to happen when and where you least expect them?
