In addition to the comments noted on the actual entry... here are some responses I received when I came clean about the "non job" in Calgary (some are a bit vulgar):
"Dick! Hahaha, that was a good one."
"I even cried."
"[I'm surprised] that someone I thought I knew is actually missing a heart."
So all in all, it was a good time for me... but some people didn't enjoy it so much. I feel bad for making the one person cry... and an apology has been given.
If I ever doubt that I am missed by my Houston peeps - I just have to look back on this one blog entry for a reminder. That, of course, was not my goal... but it was a nice surprise. I can't wait to be back for good... and that is no joke.
(yes, I do realize how cheesy that last line is... but I couldn't resist)
