Tonight I met up with some of my favorite guys, after almost 20 years!
We ate at Edley's BBQ in 12 South, Nashville.
My catfish sandwich was great, but my sides were FANTASTIC!
I highly recommend their fried pickles, mac-n-cheese, and potato salad!
When the guys arrived, I felt like we were back in college and out for a night of fun!
We immediately began catching up on spouses, jobs, kids, parents, and life in general.
It did not seem like it had been 20 years.......
until a "DJ" announced "trivia night".....
The loud ruckus of the young 20-something whipper snappers annoyed us 40-somethings and we moved to a different atmosphere!
The Frothy Monkey.......and just like in college, we closed the place down......at 9pm....
I literally sat on my phone all night so I would not irritate these guys with my obsession for picture taking.
Instead, at the end of our evening, in the pouring rain, I made them pose in the parking lot for a selfie.
I had my hands full and had to concentrate on pushing the button, instead of posing.
Hence the constipated look on my face...
Why am I the only one that has aged?
It was time for me to brave the 40 minute trek back to Gallatin, in the storm.
Since I had successfully made it to Nashville with only one U-Turn on the interstate, I felt confident that I could make it back to Gallatin, without any help from my map.
I made it onto the interstate and then quickly became confused. I exited the interstate and found myself in a deserted part of town.
I had driven into a night scene from the walking dead. I did not want to stop the car for fear the few night people would approach the car. I could not see well, because of the rain....
2 cop cars flew up into the one-way alley, I was traveling against the arrow, shining their light on 2 people trying to scurry under a loading dock.
Remember I said we posed for the pic in the pouring rain?
Well, if any moisture gets between the otterbox cover of my phone, and the face of my phone, the touch screen won't work.
As I kept my eyes on the rainy street, I scrambled to remove the otterbox cover from my phone so I could use maps, or GPS.....heck! even SIRI (I loathe her), to get out of this area!
I could not drive and blindly remove the case. I got very stressed and angry.....
angry MAZ removed the case, freed the phone and used the map.
I was 4 blocks from the flippin restaurant......
