Christmas Weekend Plans Shot Down the Drain.

By: The Dude on the Right
You know how the holidays are supposed to be about getting together with loved ones, or at least your family?  Well, I think I'm done with that.  It's not that I don't love my family, in fact my favorite nephew is, or should I say was, so high up on the list that I offered to pick him up at the airport (and on a quick side note, the airport in question was Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, which I must say is a whole hell of a lot smaller than Chicago's O'Hare Airport).  And sure, I complained a bit about the fact that his flight was getting in at 6:40 AM Cleveland time, which is 5:40 AM Dude time, which means waking up at about 4:30 AM Dude time to pick him up, yet there I was, at baggage claim #9.  There he was, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as he was getting in from a red-eye from Las Vegas, so I let him nod off a bit on the ride back to my folk's house, and tried to keep quiet at home so he could take a nap.

Now, in my preparation for coming home for the holidays, one of our traditions is to see a movie on Christmas Day, but since I might be traveling back to the dude-pad that day, I figured wouldn't it be great to head to the movies with my nephew on Friday evening, and maybe hit the bars after,where he could give me the hip ways to pick up college dudettes these days, and I could show him that his uncle has no right trying to pick up college dudettes.  Oh, wait, he's not 21 yet, but I did hold off on my seeing "Rocky Balboa" before he showed up, thinking that would be our movie to catch this weekend in pseudo-tradition for Christmas.

But alas, this afternoon, in telling some of his exploits in Sin City, it came out that he had already seen an aged Rocky try to re-claim his glory.

And so, figuring that, for a change, I wouldn't have to go to the movies alone, and remembering what our staff member, Whammy, once said, "Only losers go and see movies alone," well it looks like tomorrow I'll be a loser.  At least my favorite niece might have been fast thinking enough to lie about what movies she has seen so as not to ruin Christmas Weekend.

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
