After eating a tiny blueberry muffin, I responded "mo cake" so that my grandmother, GaGa, would give me another one.
I was 3 and less verbose than I am now. Though I'm not sure I communicate any better. GaGa gave me another tiny blueberry muffin.
The place was 50 Yard Line steakhouse in Lubbock, Texas. It was and is one of my favorite restaurants in the whole world. Few places of any kind make me feel more nostalgic, and not just because it is decorated with pictures of former Texas Tech Red Raider legends. Imagine the Texas Sports Hall of Fame with a fabulous steakhouse inside of it, only it mainly features Texas Tech, which is good enough for me.
Texas isn't a better place because a California-based fast food chain came to our state.
But it isn't worse either, I suppose.
And I'll admit, I was intrigued enough to drive to Dallas today in order to eat at In-N-Out Burger. That's not the only reason I made the drive. I also met up with my friends Brian Patterson and Josh Hicks to watch the little Mavericks open the NBA Western Conference Finals against some team from Oklahoma, of all places.
