Well I’ve spent the past 2+ weeks in the Chicago area (and North Carolina and Wisconsin) and it’s been productive! The main goal was to do the annual fishing trip with Dad & bro, but before we packed the car with beer, food, and $3 fishing lures I did some running around which I think has paid off:
- Bought all kinds of shit to take back to Korea… bedding, kitchen tools, a kickass Logitech Performance MX wireless mouse, and a bunch of business-related books
- Spent a day with a super nice Mexican lady who taught me how to make tacos and green/red hot sauce
- Reconnected with some friends from my days of working at Spiegel Outlet Store about 500 years ago
- Visited mom in NC, and she tried really hard to teach me how to swing a golf club so I can stick it to Ben and Lee the next time we play screen golf in Seoul
The highlight was catching 19 fish in Wisconsin, which is 19 more than I caught last year… but of course Pat managed to catch 23. Dick! Ok my fish count wasn’t really THE highlight… that honor belongs to my dad who reeled in the biggest goddam fish any one of us has ever caught! Dad actually caught TWO northern pikes, but the second one was kind of puny compared to his first. Nice job, old man!
Holy shit, Dad!
