I was big pimpin' the other night at the big Theater Jacksonville 90th anniversary bash in my hometown of Jax, Florida. I ran into a bunch of old friends and had a few drinks. I ran a children's theater way back in the early 90's at TJ and worked there for several years. Good memories. Good times.
Spent the Jax trip mostly with Moms, best bud Ted and a few others. Mama wanted to show me off like I was a pet monkey, but that's what a mom does. I hit the spots I wanted to hit like Ying's Chinee Takee Outee, Steinmart (brand names for less!) and the Super Wal-Mart where I saw many a Jesus tie. Oh, The South!
Hit the mall for a quick bit of mall rattin' and grabbed a bite at the food court at my fave joint, Chick-Fil-A. As I was scarfing down those delicious nuggets, some random dude comes up to me with his phone out, pointing at me and asks, "Can I take your picture?" A bit flabbergasted at this request, with Polynesian sauce coated nuggets in mouth, I cleverly reply, "Uh...what?". Followed up with an even more brilliant, "Why?". He then explained that he knew I was Kathy's son as his wife works with my mom. Okay...maybe lead with that next time instead of just asking to take my picture. I know I'm big and famous, but a star needs his alone time with his nuggets. Funny stuff though.
