I split my time between Conyers, where Ryan lives, and Atlanta. I got a great welcome from Ryan’s family, Trish, Scott, and Shea, and I got fed really well. Their fridge was stacked, and Trish kept urging me to help myself. I tried to resist, but I quickly gave in. I felt really at home with them. “Mmmm, gotta love me some sweet tea” – Annoying Ian
Ryan and I hung out with Ashley and her friend from Massachusetts, Kristen. We enjoyed an “evening gone wrong” together. The plan was to go bowling. Ryan and I went to the bowling lanes at 10:00 and found out that it would be $17 per person, unlimited play. But there was a wait and the place was closing at midnight. 90 minutes play, tops, for $17. Sucks.
I suggested we play Trivial Pursuit DVD edition and get drinks. Social, somewhat active, creative, cheap. Ryan relayed the idea to Ashley and it was shot down, hard.
Ryan and I weren’t going to do bowling, so we went back home. Ashley and Kristen came over later. Major unhappiness. Staunchly against Trivial Pursuit. They came in a huff and left in a huff.
A while later, they came back. Ryan fixed some drinks, we brought out the game, and Kristen and I were kicking ass until Ryan, defeated, said “this isn’t fun anymore.” Pussy voice, really sad.
That was one of the most stressful nights I’ve had. Sour. Really sour night.
Conyers was great though. Thanks Smith-Harwell Hotel de Conyers!!
