So I'm typing this as my Tilapia (it's a fish) is cooking in olive oil and garlic salt. And I add that bit of info in there to let you all know how jealous of my cooking skills you should be, and how jealous of my cuisine you should be. Mostly the latter.

Anyhow, Breanna and I went to the Goo Goo Dolls concert last night. I knew roughly half of the stuff they played. I liked the slower stuff the best. It was fun. We missed the food, as Breanna's guy was extremely slow and extremely late -- which is why single dates are much better. I don't have to wait for other people and their tardiness (as they always are) and have it interrupt my plans (as it always does). But even with that tardiness, my plans of being there around 7:00 only got pushed back to getting there about 7:45, and they opened the doors at 7:50, so we made it there in time to get in and get good seats. So we just missed out on food somewhere. The funny man was funny. I guess that's why they pay him to come be funny. He preformed to his audience and threw in some computer humor in. He was a lot better than I expected him to be. Anyway, it was a fun night. Dad, next brain share, if you're offering tickets again, I'll take 'em. Thanks for the tickets for last night too.

And by the way, the Tilapia tastes really good.

I agree. Double dates or group dates, you're always waiting on someone who's slow, which causes you to rush something or miss it completely. You need to find a good person to double with who you know doesn't do that.

Your poor roommates.. The smell of garlic fish in the apartment.. for probably three days.

I once paid to go to sadie hawkins and was with a huge group....long story short: we didn't have time to even make an appearance at the dance due to so many people's tardiness. frustrating!!1

All that food...(and I mean it was a lot!) and YOU MISSED IT?!?!?!?!?!?!

My thoughts exactly.

I bought some Tilapia yesterday, on your recommendation, so I guess we will see how it is for ourselves.

Maybe you could plan such future dates 1/2 hour earlier than you think you should be there. Better more than enough time, than too little.

That was the plan, but then I was told by Breanna that Derick couldn't leave 'til 5:30, but I decided it would be fine to leave at 5:30. Then I found out the day of the event that he didn't get out of class 'til 5:30 and *then* had to come home. A little after 6:00, he showed up. Yes, I know to plan things early, but the simple rule of life is that it never works out like that when you're working with living people. I should have just gone separately, but all things considered, it was fine. We at least got to the place just in time to get good seats.

At least it wasn't like the Motab Christmas concert where I went to pick up the girl and sat in her front room for 15 minutes or so while she got ready, and then we just barely missed getting there on time. But that just proves my point again. Just because I plan on leaving in time doesn't mean that I can force everyone else to do the same thing.

Oh Bretsker. I feel your pain. I've been living with that reality for years and I assume you will too.
