An Awkward Encounter

Kendle and Bryan, revisiting awesomeness

Year Of The Pizza vets Bryan and Kendle came back to visit Austin after their move to Dallas.  They’re really happy there, which I was a little surprised about.  I’m from Dallas too, and can’t imagine moving back.  I think they’re just good at finding the positive in any situation they find themselves in, which is a wonderful character trait.

So we had to hit up their fave foodie things: cupcakes at Sugar Mama’s, wings and beer at Shady Grove, pizza at Home Slice.  The wait at the ‘Slice was over an hour and a half, so we went to Shady Grove for beer and wings while we waited.  I recognized our waitress from the last HOES contest.  At first, I didn’t think she recognized me, and I wanted to say hi and reminisce, so when she came back with the drinks I said “Hi!  I’m Seth, from the HOES competition, how are you?”.

She already knew who I was.  “Hi”, she tersely said to me, before asking Bryan and Kendle if she could get them anything else.

Thus began the awkwardness.  She wouldn’t make eye contact with me the rest of the meal, always asking B&K if THEY wanted anything else, or how THEY’RE wings turned out.

It was so uncomfortable; I wasn’t aware that I had enemies since I left middle school.  Our personalities didn’t really connect at the contest, but I just chalked it up to lots of everything deprivation.  Guess not.  The wings were good though, thanks for asking!

So was the pizza.  They hadn’t had one in a while, and loved it.  It’s fun taking exuberant people to Home Slice.

Cost: $25.00 (I guess)
Total this year: $623
