Yesterday was a decidedly crappy day (thanks to an unpleasant argument with Denver about when I'd be moving the rest of my things out) so I was pretty excited about my dinner date with an old friend.
My buddy Zack (who lovingly allows me to call him Zackybooboo despite the fact that he is a grown man) has just moved to Houston to start his new job. It's been hectic, since he graduated less than a month ago, went to Europe, and had a week between getting back and starting his new job. Zack and I go way back. We met his freshman year (my 4th year) in Longhorn Band at THE University of Texas. He was in my brother fraternity and his amazing girlfriend Sarah is one of my sorority sisters. On top of all that, he's just an all around awesome guy.
Here's what we learned on our dinner outing: Karaoke brings out the super weird in people. And karaoke at Applebee's doesn't bring out the big talent. It does, however, bring out a black guy dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow attempting to strum an inflatable guitar while BUTCHERING "Hey There Delilah". We cracked jokes at his expense. I mean, isn't that the American way?
