February 24, 2015 - Most of the blog posts seem to be about an event on a weekend. So, it's with some amount of pride that I say that this post is neither event-related or a weekend occurrence (Tuesday!)
My Mom got some blood work done in Springfield, MO, so I came along to split some of the driving time.
For lunch we ate at the Mudhouse Coffee House in downtown Springfield
We ordered "mud puddles."
It was with great relief that my inferences I'd derived from the name were dispelled when I was presented with an excellent frozen mocha!
One the way back home we drove by the Savoy Ballroom where
we're planning on doing some
(or "dancing" for all of you who didn't catch that Benny Goodman reference)
Oh, and this completely random photo was taken to commemorate the realization of how much I enjoy hearing only one side of a phone conversation.
You get to utilize your powers of deduction to determine what's being said in the silent pauses of the conversation, exercise your imagination in filling in the missing pieces, and to write your own words into the blank spaces left by the articulations of the person on the other side of the phone.
Oh, wait...honestly, I think I do this even in a face-to-face conversation. ;)
