My good friend Charlie is in town. He used to live in Charleston and we used to work together at a newspaper. I missed him like crazy when he moved to Austin because there is only a handful of people in the world who can make me laugh until I hurt. Charlie is one of them.
We cut school one day and went to see the movie "Secretary" in the middle of the afternoon. We were the only two people in the theater. Charlie spent more than half the movie talking on his cell phone.
We went to Target West Ashley on the day it opened because it was the first Target here and we were both thrilled sh*tless. Charlie brought his camera and took pictures all over the store. My favorite was the one I took of him wearing giant pink bunny ears with an angry look on his face. It was awesome. I wish I still had that photo.
This is a photo I took of him standing in the doorway of my office at the newspaper. It's pretty typical Charlie ("heyyyy, look at me, I'm so cool."). I have another one of him in a cowboy hat, but I'm pretty sure I'd become his arch nemesis for posting it, so I won't (but wouldn't it be exciting to have an arch nemesis?). I'd also probably become his arch nemesis for telling the story about him peeing off the dock during a fancy gala at the waterfront, so I won't do that either.
We're going out to dinner this evening. General hilarity will ensue.
