and, no, I don’t mean that everyone has left town because the Astros lost. We were playing the “pasty hose” (where do they come up with these?) on Saturday night. At six o’clock we went to Chuy’s. Even though it was a Saturday night there was no waiting. About a third of the tables were empty. Few people came in after us. Because of the game.
I went to the bookstore in the middle of the game. Listened to it all the way. The streets were empty like it was 3 am on Sunday morning. And there were many parking places close to the front of the parking lot.
I wonder what it will be like tonight.
