Nice relaxing evening at the Round Rock Express game on Wednesday. Dan got to invite 10 people to share the suite with us. This was a long and hard decision on who to invite. It was our first game of the season for us. Since we didn’t get a half share of season tickets this year, and we’ve both been so busy, we just haven’t had a chance.
Food, drink, baseball, and buddies. That’s my kind of hump-day!
Dan let me pick out the food. Ok, most of it. I picked the mixed fajita dinner, it has the most food I can actually eat on it and it’s good. He ordered the drinks and the rest. The veggie tray, fajitas, and tortilla chips and salsa were a big hit. Rice and beans, not so much.
I’ll admit, I didn’t eat the rice and beans, I rarely do because I am a huge rice snob. Extra fajita meat instead, drowned in pico and guacamole! We had to get them to bring more meat, because my sister and I ate almost all of the beef before anyone else got there.
He has said before the dessert was a waste because there is always a ton left. He ordered it anyhow and once again more than half was left. He also ordered mini corndogs because they sounded good. Over half of those were left too. Who orders corndogs with Mexican food?
It was good to see our friends, I invited AK and her family too. Dan doesn’t like “mixing” groups of friends, but I thought it was fine. So funny to see her in real clothes, I rarely see her anytime but running.
Good to see many of our “south” friends way up North And on a weeknight! So happy they got to come. Missing one gal, tsk tsk, she was late. Holy heck, look how much alike sister and I look. Rarely does anyone think we look alike, but here, I can see it. (she’s on left)
It may have been 105 degrees outside, but there was a nice breeze outside, it never felt that hot at all and the box on the suite is completely shaded. Plus the air conditioner inside was FREEZING! So the heat was definitely not an issue.
My sister didn’t stay outside long. I had just warned her that she needed to pay careful attention to left-handed batters (and quit playing on her phone). Next pitch was a line drive back into the window behind us (about 3 feet from our heads). She said she didn’t want to have to pay attention, so she went back inside. Dan joked that was his master plan to “off me.”
Not sure what was going on, if it was the new medicines or what, but not only did I make it through the whole game without falling asleep, I was wired! Usually I fall asleep after the 7th inning stretch, which is usually around 9 pm. At 11 pm I was still totally wide awake. Now if I can find the happy medium!
