Got to Kansas City on a Friday
...well, actually a Thursday, but I didn't think Rogers & Hammerstein would like me altering the Oklahoma lyrics for my little blog.
I spent last weekend in Kansas City, visiting my boyfriend Dave. Also at the Dave House were his once-and-current roommate Mustang and Mustang's girlfriend FCC@V. It was quite the house party! I got to feed my craving for KC BBQ at Gates, go to Mustang's sister's wedding (where Dave graciously consented to go beyond his comfort zone and dance a couple of fast dances with me), and visit Union Station. Dave & I had our first date there last November, and it was wonderful to go back there with him again. We met under the clock pictured above, and spent the next 6 hours or so talking. It was a pretty perfect first date, even with the irritating bagpiper that showed up later to annoy us both. But we even bonded over our dislike for bagpipes. We're looking forward to going back when I visit in December, when all the holiday decorations will be up.
But all in all, it was a wonderful weekend in KC, and as expected, very hard to leave. But it was nice to find out, when I finally got home 2 1/2 hours later than planned due to stupid plane delays and a highway accident, that my mischevious and occasionally diabolical cat had mostly behaved herself while I was gone. She did spend the next hour meowing loudly at me, probably yelling at me for abandoning her.
