It was, however, a beautiful day. Just breezy enough to be nice, but not too terribly cold. I stopped at Blue Velvet, a vintage clothing shop. They had some neat stuff, but I was really just browsing. I walked across campus down the drag, and started journeying down 24th towards Rio Grande. Once again, I remembered that Momoko's existed, so I stopped by and had the traditional coconut milk tea.
And that's when it started to sink in....
I was in a good mood. A REALLY GOOD mood. I was in love with the day, in love with the city, and in love with my coconut milk tea. A walk down Rio Grande towards Katz's only increased this feeling. And when I got in my car (finally) around 2:00, my joy just multiplied. I put in Pain's Midget With Guns into the CD player, and took off for home. By the time I hit Mopac, I had all the windows down, the music blaring full blast, and I was singing/screaming along.
When I arrived home, there was a message from Scott and Angela. I called them, and they told me that they, Wes, and Colleen were all going to the Sol y La Luna, a Mexican restaurant down south on Congress. I freshened up, and took off again. More driving, more Pain, more singing. Lunch was great, the company even better, but soon I was on my way back home. Yes, that's right. More Pain, more driving. I can't wait to be in a band, in case you couldn't tell.
I can't explain it, really. Sometimes you just want to take on the world. And you know what? I still feel it, so look out.
