I have no idea why, but this weekend found me reminiscing about a road trip I took my freshman year of college…
Picture it. Pine Bluff, AR, Spring ’90. My cousins, a couple of friends, and I decided to roll out to Grambling for their annual Spring Fest. We gassed up somebody’s hoop ride and hit the road – singing along to our En Vogue and Soul II Soul cassettes all the way there. Oh yeah, I said cassettes!
Man, I had a ball! We went to step shows, hung out on the yard, I had crawfish for the first time, went to my first drive thru daiquiri bar, and made out with some Que whose name was probably Freaky Deaky (are all Ques named Freaky Deaky??) in the back of some pick up truck we were being chauffered around in.
Special shout out to my parents for encouraging me to go away to college…
Good times man, good times! Any road trips that leave you with a big grin on your face when you think about them?
*Every Monday? I’ll be posting my weight. I’ve got to lose at least
10 11.4 pounds and then tighten up what’s left. All the fabulous Bloglandians who are doing amazing things like running, walking, biking – sometimes all three – have motivated me to be about it – for real!!! Today: 171.4
