As I ended up being flying there, I seated close to these two elderly people known as Ron and Betty. I’m very liberal and the girl finished up roping myself into a discussion about government, and she ended up being very liberal too, and she was hilarious. And whenever the airplane landed, they were like, “We must meet up for products in Austin.” We traded cell phone numbers, and wanted to have margaritas at the old club in the west area of Austin. They told me each goes around every Tuesday.
Correct whenever I got back, Kristina and that I came across upwards for lunch [on a Tuesday]. We had a few beverages, and that I is like, “You know very well what we ought to would right now? We should go go out with Betty and Ron.”
