Mistaken Identity

There is a guy I know or at least I thought I knew from high school that I often run into at HEB.  My best friend and I used to get rides with him back and forth to Alpine, Texas when we were all students at Sul Ross State University.

Today I once again ran into him and inquired about his wife...I asked for her by name...he responded "are you asking about my sister-in-law or my niece?"  I said "isn't such and such your wife?"...No, she is my sister-in-law.  Then you are not X?  No, he is my brother.

He asked me for my name so he could tell them next time he speaks to them that I inquired about them, as they live in the Dallas area.  I told him to tell him I was one of the girls that used to catch a ride with him to go to Alpine.

He looked at me and said "my brother never went to Sul Ross".  Then who did I, my best friend and a bunch of other people ride with?  He rattled off some guys names and I said yeah they rode with us too.  He said "you must of ridden with me, though I do not remember giving any girls a ride."

I told him that we always got pulled over in Marathon and he would scream "hide the beer"....no, neither my friend nor I were drinking...just him and some of the guys.  He got a smile from ear to ear and said "Yeah, I remember that".

So it turns out after all these years that I thought we rode to Alpine with a certain person...it wasn't him at all but his older brother!  I guess I have had CRS longer than I imagined, jajajajaja :D

It was supposed to rain today but it didn't, seems they keep on changing the forecast. Decided to go tackle the laundry this evening before that place becomes a madhouse if it does rain.  They close at 11:00 p.m. and I finished at 10:58 p.m. I feel like a great weight has been lifted off of my shoulders.  One less thing on my To Do List.

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
