Mr. Eli's Wild Ride

This was last Friday.

I got up at 5:30 and left the house at 6:00, driving to Ann Arbor to pick up Eli 18.6. The weather was terrible for most of the trip, and a 2:00 drive turned into 2:45.

As soon as Eli got in the car, the weather started to get better. In thirty minutes, the sun was out. Deep symbolism there.

We got back to Grand Rapids at 11:20, just in time for his 11:30 dental appointment. Then he got a haircut, took a long nap, and we all met for dinner downtown.

Why? Because Gloria and Eli were going to see "Hamilton."

Started at 8:00, lasted almost three hours. What a day, right?

Not so fast.

Gloria then had to drive Eli back to Ann Arbor, and they didn't get there until 2:30 a.m. because the weather was so bad. Gloria then spent the night in Livonia, which is a Detroit suburb, because getting home at 5:00 seemed like a really bad idea.

Why the madness? Because he had to get in line (sleeping in a tent with his friends) to get good seats for the Michigan St. game (the biggest basketball game of the year). 20F, snow.

He said with four of them in a three-person tent, it was like a sauna.

They got great tickets to the game, Michigan won, and he promptly took a four hour nap.

Just a normal day.
