So, Tuesday I brushed my teeth and left my toothbrush posed, like so, on the counter in the bathroom.
The next time I looked for it, it was gone. Not there. Missing. Incognito. Wednesday I did not brush my teeth until I went and got a complimentary one from the front desk, along with a nifty little tube of toothpaste. I forgot to buy one yesterday when I was getting my delicious meal, and since I have two more at home still, didn’t really want to buy another.
Luckily, it turned out I had put my toothbrush back in my backpack to take with me for emergency roadside toothbrushing!
So anyway, I worked some, then traveled, and came across this:
So I stopped and looked around, of course. It wasn’t too fancy, a hole-in-the-wall with a bunch of random stuff used guns, some rifles that can’t be bought in California, and a M1 Carbine that had been turned into a handgun. Funky!
All that browsing got my hunger parts a’ burnin’, so I hit kept my eyes peeled for some authentic southern coastal eatin’.
I got the Sudie’s special meal – two seafoods, with beans, coleslaw, and hushpuppies. When the waitress gave me the menu, she asked if I’d like a cold beer to start, and when she dropped off the food, asked if I’d need more seafood sauce. I’m so steeped in the culture it’s dripping from my pores!
I passed on the beer in favor of a Sprite, and passed on the extra sauce, because there’s no way I’m getting through all those fries, crawfish, and shrimp. The coleslaw was delicious, but on the runny side. I’m still hoping it gives me tons of gas. The beans were brown, but tasted like those white beans. I only ate two spoonfuls.
And then I went back to work. This site was located on a street named after the second most famous Texas Ranger.
All the work done there, I headed home, and made sure to stop by the Fry’s near the space station. I’d heard they have something interesting there.
And they did! Apparently, Texas is so big, they had to explore it from space, and they still have a space station in Houston. NASA is here, too, and inside this Fry’s, theres a bunch of satellites and space station paraphernalia. Groovy!
On the way back to my hotel, I passed by this humongous building. I’m not sure what it is, but I think it’s where they’re building the robots that will eventually take over the word and enslave mankind. Spooky!
Back towards Houston, there was another huge traffic jam. For how huge the roads are, and how well spaced out everything is, they sure have a lot of accidents. Tuesday morning when I turned on the news, there was an accident on every highway, in every direction.
Also note, these lucky country bumpkins get to ride in the back of their trucks!
