I Heart Chinese Food

March 14, 2012

Drawings, Journal

So, when I got home today, Lauren called and said that she (and by that she meant we) needed to make a quick trip to Wal*Mart. I knew how long those take, so I grabbed a gift certificate to Dragon Palace (best Chinese food within 25 miles) and met her at the car.

Our trip to Wal*Mart went more-or-less as planned, except that I whipped out my trusty phone in the middle of the produce aisle and phoned in a take-out order. Lauren was driving, and there was no parking so she dropped me off out front and circled the block (here, I’m just guessing).

Walking into Dragon Palace right in front of me was a gang of 3 high school boys. Once they got into the restaurant they met a 4th high school boy who greeted them, one after the other, with a big hug. When he got to the last one, I said, “uhum?”

And I got a big hug too.

Also, the Chinese food was delicious.

    Yum! We’re going out for Chinese for lunch today. I can’t wait! I just hope the fortune cookie isn’t in German or I’ll be forever wondering what my fate is.
    And way to share the love, Lloyd. Or maybe take the love.

    Did you know the high schoolers, or were they random strangers?

    How about the Chinese food? Did you know it, or was it a random selection?

      I did not know the high schoolers. Lauren drew them more like middle schoolers. Concordia is on Spring Break, so I’m pretty sure they were not college students.

      The Chinese food is always the same order. I don’ t think I’m brave enough to order random numbers.

    Awwww…that is such a nice story! Another great shout out for Nebraskians…..or the Chinese.

    You probably looked like a high schooler to them, what with your beard-trim and all.
