A weekend or so ago my two best buds and I went to New Buffalo, Michigan for the weekend to get away from our families and spend a little time bonding.
You remember my two best friends, right? Lola and Buddah. Buddah and I went to college together while Lola and I met later in the school of hard knocks.
Anyway, we did a little of everything: eating, drinking, laughing, shopping, and even crashing a wedding. Yes, a wedding....well the reception anyway. It was Buddah's cousin's wedding to which she had not been invited, it's kind of a long story but the wind up is: if she'd been formally invited they would have to add an additional 50 people to the guest list. So, while her aunt told her to come by (with her two friends)she was not formally invited which technically made us crashers, right?
Mayor Daley (the mayor of Chicago) was there. We didn't speak to one another but I think we had a moment. I was trying to indicate to him that he had a bug in his hair ( a beetle of some kind) and he clearly was annoyed by my silent attempts to communicate with him until someone standing next to him actually pulled the bug off of him. He din't say "thank you" but I personally had a sense that I'd fulfilled my civic duty for the evening.
