This is CRAZY LAND.

FINALLY, ERIC HO HANGOUT! The Pittsburgh Penguins and the 2017 Stanley Cup!

Eric Ho called me at 5:35 to say that he was heading down to Richmond, and alerted me to the fact that Nathan was back in town recently, so of course I checked out Nathan’s Facebook page! It’s true: Daniel is now a Doctor! Also, their mom Auntie Lillian is going to have a small park at Yukon and 17th named after her soon! He got here at 6:10, and I had the parking pass ready, of course! Then he said that he was in his neighborhood, and bumped into Mike. Eric actually deliberately waved him down to talk to him even though he doesn’t like Mike much: apparently, Mike’s gone on fewer cross-border trips, but I think that’s because Hagen’s had reduced their requirements for picking up packages from every two weeks to a month. Anyway, Eric had apparently told Mike that “Leslie and I have fun when we hang out and it’s not so empty.” I had to get him to translate this, which apparently meant that there wasn’t a feeling of missing the other person! (and to see if he missed stuff like that, too) At least Mike apparently got the message since he went quiet afterwards, and Eric mentioned now that Mike wasn’t his cup of tea, either – JUST LIKE BILLIE DID!

We also talked about his new glasses (the other pair broke), my good eye for noticing that, future hangouts, wanting to extend me the courtesy of a heads-up, the Creamsicle ice cream, LeBron James and his dynasty, Sidney Crosby compared to Alexander Ovechkin, his not liking Richmond drivers, Nick Bonino, EA Sports and playing past players vs. modern players, a future road trip, Michael Jordan, a zero-zero tie (0-0 tie) till very late in the game, and Shania Twain being on TV at the game in Nashville before he finally left at 8:05. Yes, we ate McDonalds fries / sour cream and onion Pringles chips / Efruti gummy candy / wasabi Pringles chips / Creamsicle ice cream / Kettle chips in Moscow Mule flavor / Lays sour cream and sriracha chips. Now I’m going to relax with video game music for the rest of the night because having someone talk at me for three hours is pretty draining!
