My Athens Bestie, Frankie (you may have heard me talk about her a time or two, this is what you might remember about her), and I had a terrific night out last night. We joined the majority of our church congregation at Cine' in downtown Athens to listen to the skillful drummer, Arvin Scott, at his benefit concert for the Kenya Project (members of our church are heading to Kenya on a mission trip later this week). I certainly believe that a great time was had by all. A great time was especially had by Frankie and I because with 7 children between the 2 of us, we were child free.
After the concert we walked to Transmet for dinner. If you haven't been there 1. You should go and 2. You have to stand in line and order at the cash register at the counter. So, we stood in line and then we ordered at the counter. It was a young (because I am so old) college age kid (and I can talk about college age kids...the ones in college now? Yeah, I taught them.) was waiting to take our order. I announced to him, "We're together," implying that we should be on the same ticket...only he just stared at me, like he didn't know what to make of that statement. And because he was just staring at me, Frankie interjected, "And we're celebrating that." It actually took the guy about 30 seconds to catch up with his and then he gave us a crooked grin and shook his head.
And that is the end of my story.
And in case you were wondering, we had the mozzarella caprese and the pesto vegetarian pizza with artichokes added. It was delightful. :)
