The Weekend Update. (Just call me Tina Fey.)
Friday afternoon Robby, his sister Tonya,
and I went shopping at the
Chesterfield Mall. While minding our own business and hanging out near
the Starbucks and Crocs kiosks, an older man started talking to Robby
about the price of sandals. Pretty soon the three of us were engaged in
quite an animated conversation with this Jewish, atheistic, retired art
professor. He had received a stellar education and kept trying to
convince us that intelligence was the only true thing we could rely on
in life. While he didn’t make much sense and kept trying to tell us we
had been brainwashed, we did our best to listen to him and share our
faith in a way he could hopefully understand. It was definitely an
interesting way to spend part of our afternoon at the mall. Tonya also
made it interesting when she adjusted the jeans to make the male
mannequin outside of Hollister a little more presentable. Before
leaving, the three of us crammed ourselves and all our packages into
one of those little picture booths and took some fun photos. I’ll share
them as soon as I can scan and upload them. We rounded out the evening
worshiping and fellowshiping with some folks from their church.
Saturday and Sunday brought our first ever church camp out Maramec Springs
in St. James. Yesterday morning I brought my guitar and made my debut
playing for our outdoor service. Me and my capo – if only I had a
djembe player I could lead worship for SBU chapel.
Speaking of debuts, here we are (complete with recently upgraded status to “boyfriend”).
On the way home, my afternoon became complete when I got to see Addie
(a long overdue visit). Tonight the parents, grandmother, and I will
root the Cardinals on to victory in their new home – our first trip to
the new Busch Stadium. Go Red Birds!
