Thursday, February 28th
I started there in September of 2001. Kim and I were friends until April of 2002. April 4th 2002 was our first official date. We had road trips in school, we went to Saskatoon once and to Edmonton once to tour big printing plants! Corey and I were in the back seat of a 15 passenger van with our “special” hot chocolates and our acoustic guitars, we provided music along the way to Edmonton!
Corey and I had made a bet. First one to lose however much weight won, we both put $5 weekly into a jar at school, until we went to Edmonton. Then the winner would get the cash, we were stupid though. We had both lost around 20lbs or so. We shared the $85 I think it was and splurged on ordering the most unhealthy food from Boston Pizza close to our hotel. Anything and everything up to $85 that we could get, wings, pizzas, appetizers, etc. There happened to be a liquor store next to our hotel. The 3 of us guys in the program at the time went there first of course.
We ended up at a bar called “Cowboys” it was ladies night and the show wasn’t over yet. The girls went in to the area with whatever show was on for them. The guys had to wait before they’d let us into that half of the bar, which happened to be where the washrooms were. I really had to pee, I couldn’t wait any longer. I got in to use the washroom. I put up my hands to block my peripheral vision and went straight to the washroom. When I came out the show was still going on, so I went back to the guys area. Corey found out the hard way that a double jack and coke was $9 I think, from then on it was the cheapest beer for us. We had alcohol back at the hotel that we had already purchased.
That’s enough for today. Update on how many times I’ve listened to the Big Wreck album……..299!
