Operation kidnap Fuddy Dutty:
Well, soon operation kidnap Rob and take his butt out to Lubbock will soon be underway. Obviously I can’t post this blog post until after we get started tomorrow morning. This is top secret stuff!!!!
Basically I’m the single guy…. The bad influence on my friends; and now that Rob is married with a child his life has become a big “restrictive”. He didn’t think he was allowed to come out to Lubbock with us for the four day weekend trip to see the UT vs. Tech football game. This is a tradition that we have been doing since we graduated. We go back at least once a year (three time last year..whoooho!!!) for a big football game like the Aggies or UT. We go back and rip up the town! We do all the things we couldn’t afford to do often when we were starving college students. We see old friends, eat lots of Ellis, and don’t get much sleep. We eat at Spanky’s (must have cheese sticks!), have a beer at Scooners, and listen to music at Bleachers. We do all sorts of things that if Rob didn’t join us for… Well fak, it just wouldn’t be right! He might even die. We might even die!
So unbeknownst to Rob, his lovely wife Stacey called me a few months ago and wanted to surprise Rob by letting him go to the game. We procured plane tickets, a hotel room, rental car, and ticket to the game. Stacy has been working with his boss and admin to make sure that his calendar is clear Thursday and Friday. Everything is falling into place for the kidnapping. If all goes well, John, Blake, Rob and I will be half drunk and having a good time in Lubbock by dinner time tomorrow.
The plan right now is for Blake and I to go to his house early tomorrow morning and cook him surprise breakfast. After all, I’m sure he thinks we are total jerks since we didn’t get him anything for his birthday (not even a card lol!). After we make him think that his gift is a surprise breakfast, we are going to let him know he has 3 hours to pack his stuff and take care of anything he needs to take care of for the weekend because we will be picking him up for lunch and a flight to Lubbock at noon. His real gift from his wife and his boys will be a 4 day trip back to the motherland and the continuation of a tradition! Should be fun!!! As far as I know he has no idea this is coming. Stacy even talked me into staging a fake fight with her when I was over at Rob’s house for Monday night football this week. She wanted me to fight with her about Rob not being able to go to the game. So I did! She ripped me up and down about how one day I too will grow up and get real responsibilities. That I would be like Rob and rather stay home and take care of my family than watch stupid football. We got into it for 3-4 mins and made Rob uncomfortable. Nice touch Stacy!!!! This will be an epic adventure.
I’ll try to take my camera tomorrow morning, and post updates before I hit the road.
Guns Up you sons’of’beeches!!!!!!!
