:: The Land Before (Classic) Times ::
*warning: Nostalgia ahead.
Well that was a surprisingly cool phone call I just got, from a guy I haven't seen or talked to in over a year - Bobby "BK" Kalar. Turns out he ran into Chris and some of the other guys tonight, and there at Jimy Mac's having some beers because its Bobby's birthday today.
For the uninitiated, Bobby used to hang out with us a while ago back when him, Chris, Ian and Jerm were in high school, back before we met or hung out with guys like Sean and Garski. As Bobby put it - "Back in the good ol' days" of sitting around my living room drinking Bacardi Limon and mountain dew and playing poker. We also tended to watch the game show network a lot while getting blitzed, although I'm not sure why we ever did that. I always remember Bobby as the guy who hated beer and chugged bacardi straight from the bottle.
But then those guys graduated and, as usually happens, we all stopped hanging out as much, then not much to never, which is a shame because we were all pretty close and Bobby's one of the funnest guys around. Here's a picture from at least two years ago. If that picture doesn't work then try this one Bobby's the one of the left, and I'm sure you recognize the rest of the cast of characters.
I don't know how he hooked up with Chris, Jer and company tonight, but it sounded like they were having a good time - and quite possibly a 'Classic Time' with a guy we all knew before we even came up with the term.
Back in the 'good ol' days.'
