---------------------Andrew’s Turn-------------Andrew’s Turn----------------Andrew’s Turn---------------
Originally I have had plan with Eudo, but he cancelled it. Actually that’s perfect since Andrew wanted to snap up the Sunday slot, now I was be able to spend quality of time with Andrew.
We went for lunch. It was a nice restaurant. We sat outside, and the weather was nice. Thank God. If it were hot, I would never sit outside. The heat in Chicago in the summer can kill people. We talked about our jobs, our future and our dreams. I remember he told me that he had an idea of making the longest stroke in the world by landing a lot of panels on the street, and if people donate some money, they can make the stroke. After that, they will be able to keep the panels. I think it’s cool. If Andrew really does that, I will make some donation for sure.
After dinner, we went to Museum of Contemporary Art. There was a show of “Jeff Koons”. The museum closed at 5, and we made it at 4:30. It was ok since we both could get in for free since our school had a deal with this museum. This artist made things that we could see in our normal life, and magnified them. I like the blue heart hanging in the air the most.
Even though the museum closed, the shopping store was still open. Downstairs I found something very interesting. It’s a pity I didn’t take a picture. They were stuffed plush toys of…. all kinds of germs and bacteria. God. Can you imagine the conversation like this,
“Mom, I want AIDS”
“Oh sweetie, they don’t have AIDS. How about herpes??
“Dad, can I have syphilis?”
“Sure kiddo, maybe we can get anabaena for your brother.”
Actually I was thinking of getting one for my brother, but I wasn’t sure if he would appreciate that. Now I really think I should get one for him. That would be very hilarious.
Next, shoping for Andrew.
I never thought I would give anyone dressing advice, and it was fun.
Andrew said he need some clothes form a wedding. Here is another joke. In the beginning he said his cousin is getting married. I heard as “My cousin is getting buried.” So I thought it would be a funeral. So when we had the discussion of a purple tie, I thought it could be too fancy for a funeral, but Andrew said it is for the wedding.
“I thought your cousin is getting buried?”
“No, he is getting married.”
Right…… ok, so purple was acceptable. H&M is a good place to shop, especially for skinny guys.
Next stop, ice cream!
We headed back to “Wicker Park” area. Andrew had the idea of ice cream after lunch, but at that time we were too full, so we just had starbucks instead. I’ve heard “Dairy Queen” before, but never went there. They had good ice cream. Since I had a very big lunch, I considered it as my dinner. The ice cream was huge!
So here is the joke of “Dairy Queen”. It comes from my ex-roommate. He is gay, and he has a gay german friend. His gay german friend loves Dairy Queen so much, so he called him Dairy “QUEEN”. End of joke.
We wandered around “Wicker Park” area after the ice cream to burn some fat (for me, you have to keep them Andrew). We went to the actual “Wicker Park”. It was a small park with a small fountain in the middle. Around that area were some nice stores, bars and restaurant. There was a very interesting window decoration. There were a lot of little frames, and the pictures in those frames had the meaning connecting to each other. Like “Bear”-->”Cubs”-->”Wrigley Field”-->”Ball”-->….. Very interesting.
We hanged out until 9:30pm. It seemed so fast. Happy time always seemed so fast.
