    Especially the little pieces of chicken. The buffet service was excellent, I thought. I was asking for extras after I had completed my share, so my mother lent me some and I was able to satisfy myself. I can't believe I was like that.

  2. The Windy City

    I went and sat back down and thought nothing of it until...Bang. Never mind thunder, I thought the world was coming to an end. A huge fork of lightning flashed through the sky and another hit a conductor on the other side of the street.
