my uncle called me the other day while i was out with my family celebrating my parents' 26th wedding anniversary at the casino. i was in the midst of breaking even on a slot machine that i had been sitting on for about an hour or so when i took his phone call. he asked me what the family was up to and how my life was going. it was your typical catch up conversation that you would have with anyone you hadnt really spoken to in a long time.
being that hes from the bay area, i was telling him about potential summer plans to come up and visit his family and some of my friends again like last summer. he then asked me why i didnt come around this past weekend up to the bay. i sat there confused and i followed up his question with one of my own asking him why he thought i would be there this past weekend. in which he responded without any hesitation, "well pride was this weekend." we shared a laugh with one another over that comment as we ended the phone conversation with his always open and inviting invitation up to the bay once again. i dont know how i could top my epic bay area getaway from last summer. but im determined to make the best of it the next time i find myself up there.
thanks uncle. and you might potentially see this since we are friends on facebook but i just wanted to let you know that that made me feel really special at that moment. thanks again and i love you for that. i cant wait to see you and the family sometime this summer.
are you in or are you out?
- i just want to be successful
