It’s been a couple weeks since the last post and boy do I have a story to tell! Julie and Omar, you’ll like this one.
So remember my other long lost best pal, Nathen? Well he came up to visit this last weekend and it was a blasty blast of a good time. We shared stories. We walked about town. We ate. We did some window shopping…
We did what best buds do. And then Tommy wanted to take Nathen out about town and pick up some chicks. Bad Idea because I completely forgot what it was like when Nathen is left to his own devices while intoxicated.
We went to Pesos down the road. I don’t go out much and Pesos quickly reminded me of exactly why. Crowded. Loud. Meat Market. I didn’t want to go but my Nathen was leaving the next day and we were just gonna bro out. Jenn made me dress up and look all good and smell good. So we go there around 11 and it’s cool for a bit. Then…
12:00 We literally lost Nathen. At 12pm, he said he was going to the bathroom. So we trusted to go on his own. Bad move.
12:15 Nate’s buddy, Mesina, realizes Nate is missing so he goes to look for him.
Some time between 12:15 and 12:30. Some cute blonde bought Tommy and I drinks. She thought we were cute. “OMG. You guys are so cute. You look so smart. Even if you’re not, you look hella smart. I love your glasses. I wanna kiss you guys on the cheek.”
Then she kissed us.
Already extremely uncomfortable, Mesina comes back to tell us that he can find Nate.
12:45 Now we’re like “alllllllrriiiiight! time to search for this guy!” And we do. We search the bar. Multiple sweeps at various time. Funny thing is, we do this exact procedure at the 4 other neighboring bars and at Dick’s Burgers. We literally yelled his name in the streets.
1:35ish We decide to have one last beer and wait until the bars let out so that maybe we can wait across the street as people leave and we’ll see Nathen leave.
2:00 WRONG AGAIN! At this point we split up but Tommy and I end up walking together anyway because he’s pretty drunk. Surprisingly I’m not. We head up the hill continuing to call Nathen’s name. Mesina heads home but we’ll tell him if we find him
2:30 We get back to the apartment. I know Tommy is drunk because he starts to walk as him his legs are heavy noodles. And he sleeps with his fancy clothes on. He also does uncharacteristic things like take his shoes off in the middle of the living room and leave them. I thought we were going to come up with a game plan but I guess not lol. We sort of fall asleep.
3:30-4am Nathen is yelling Jenn and my name out of our window to let him in because he finally found his way home.
He then proceeds to tell us “Dude. I swear I was in Tacoma! I rode a bus and a cab and I looked upon the city and was like “how’d I get to Tacoma?” I also LITERALLY, some dude LITERALLY, kicked me out of this house party. I don’t even know how I got there dude!”
The next day he figured out that we actually halfway up the hill, almost to the apartment. Still the mystery remains as to why he rode the bus and why he had a $14 cab ride, just to go up 3 blocks.
So that was an interesting weekend.
BTW I have a stage (culinary intership/audition) at Revel on Friday. Wish me luck.
