Super Straw

I think I’ve been disqualified as their friend.

After the Jimmy John’s eating contest I met up with Pat and Tim and Hall et. al. over at Bowman’s for lunch/drinks. It was $20 fish bowls and so there was much drinking…including Pat making himself a super straw to drink from another table…

We headed back to Tim’s and watched their appearance on the morning’s Channel 5 news segment before heading off to yet another food stop. Seriously, if I ate twenty sandwiches I’m not sure if all I’d want to do is continually go out for food! 🙂 But I didn’t eat 20 sandwiches. So I was hungry 🙂

We went to a place called Susie’s, I think, and got fries that came in a taco shell and were covered in cheese and gyro meat. Um, yum! From now on I think I will always get some meat on my french fries! They also had delicious milkshakes. Mine was German chocolate and was kind of awesome. Tim got beef sandwiches from somewhere else and brought them over. We ate a lot.

After that we piled all six of us back into the car back to Tim’s place for more drinking and more harassing of the dog by trying to fit him into a beer case and then spending entirely too much time trying to get him to knock down a tower of beer cans…

After the beer ran out we headed to some bar. My new rule is to never order whiskey sours from a foreigner. Last weekend at that Polish bar I ordered a whiskey sour and she asked what I wanted in it. I ended up with a whiskey and coke. This time I ordered a whiskey sour and got half a glass of whiskey with a splash of sour (or something). Just sayin. Or maybe I need to find myself a new girly but not too girly drink…

My second new rule is not to take a shot. Ever. At least not to take a totally ungirly shot because it usually ends badly. In this case it totally ends up with me having a gag reflex and puking the shot up. On my purse. In front of everyone.

Yeah, I’m classy.

And can totally hold my liquor.

Just sayin.

Anyways. Actually it was kind of funny because Tim kept saying that he was going to make sure I vomited every time we hung out. And then like 30 seconds later I did.

No wait, that is totally unfunny.

Anyways. (Cue Sid leaving a comment that says “Pukahontas”…)

After listening to some Kelly Clarkson and Ashlee Simpson we left for another bar, which was closed. So we went to another bar that was almost empty except for one group of people doing karaoke over and over. And a zombie. But he came in later. And then Pat pulled up his brothers underwear and it broke. And later they kicked us out for some reason…

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    I’m not sure how any of this disqualifies you from anything.

    Because in competitive eating throwing up is an automatic disqualification 🙂
