Today, I finally got to see my best Erik, whom I haven’t seen since his wedding in a couple years. Which was mainly because he and his lady moved out of state, so it kind of sucked, not being about to hang out.
It was good to have a few laughs, get some GOOD eats, with some great low keyed time talking about; things that have happened to us, stuff about work and well most of all….MATH! Which I was following along with relatively, but was mostly just actively listening.
(UGGGHHHH MATHH!!! BTW Louie-6.02 x 10^23 is a real equation-It’s the Avacodo’s rule or something, GOOGLE IT!!!)
Most of the stuff they were going over was well beyond what I learned in college and high school. So it was a little hard to follow along with, which I don’t despise, but it’s difficult to really engage with that kind of talks.
Honestly, Algebra II and anything related to Number Muncher, was the highest I went. I feel old……………….
Eventually, a conversation was started talking about the math symbol π or “Pi”. Which they mentioned that it’s not pronounced “Pie”, which makes it sound yummy, but “Pee”. Which is NOT so yummy. They confused about why people don’t pronounce it that way, which ultimately leading that this is ‘Merica and do it our way. I just think that Americans are so IRRATIONAL.
But overall, it was good to see an old friend and spend some time with Louie sans our little girl Grace for once. After that, we spent a nice little car ride enjoying some music and talking about random things, which we haven’t been doing recently. Recently, it’s almost felt like we hadn’t talked in forever. But I had an amazing time with her today and she really she is my joy. (which felt really nice)
Later, we stopped by her parents and went to a spaghetti diner together, which was fun. Grace, was really klingy and kept on hugging me, telling me she loved me and had my melted like an ice cube thrown into a volcano.
Seeing her parents is always a great experience, as her dad is pretty much the best father-in-law a man could have. Personally, I kind of view him as my father, in a lot of ways. First, both of my parents are gone, which is pretty sad as I’m 33 years old, it is, but I manage. Second, I feel he and his family were a blessing to me, as it gave me the grounded guidance I needed when my mom died and many other things. Third, he has welcomed me into his family in the most amazing way. Last, he’s got a true heart of gold and only gets on my nerves when he plays pranks on me.
Her mom has also been there, whenever I needed somebody to give the right advise when I needed a second opinion. She’s been patient with many of the ups and downs that come with getting into a house, finding a new career and supporting Louie and Grace. So, I couldn’t have asked for more.
OK OK, enough sappiness for one day!!
Overall a great day!! – Be sure to LIKE, SHARE and REBLOG if you want. Til’ next time!
