Awesome Delays

Hey Team,

As per usual, that plan that I outlined the other day is nearly completely shot. I guess that’s what I get for trying something new.

“Okay, universe. I understand. It’s not my place to make plans. It wont happen again. I promise.”

But the good news is, those plans aren’t shot for any severely negative reasons. In fact, I just got word today that I’m going to be interviewed for a spot on CNN’s headline news on Tuesday. It wont air for a few weeks but definitely exciting none the less!

So now I’m trying to decide if it’s worth making a quick side trip to Florida to climb the lowest highest point in a state.

I’ll keep you kids posted.

I’m done.

Brett.

Maybe you’d like to buy me a slice of pie?

Thanks!

GSU Sampling

Hey Team,

Yesterday morning when I pulled into Atlanta I found myself still having to finish a good portion of the podcast. Naturally I couldn’t work on it at the Greyhound station so I went for a walk to see if I could find a cozy office-of-the-day. (Preferably one with some hot tea. Turns out Atlanta isn’t nearly as warm as I had hoped it would be. I STILL got snowed on yesterday.)

About a mile from the station I found myself wandering through Georgia State University.

“Awesome. This many caffeinated kids in one place, there HAS to be a place to sit down and get some editing done.” I thought.

I approached the first two students I saw, two girls with backpacks and smiles. Can’t go wrong with smiling strangers.

“Excuse me. Do you know if there’s a coffee shop or a Starbucks nearby?” (I remember asking this verbatim because as soon as I said it I thought it was weird that in my head Starbucks was not the same as a coffee shop. Interesting.)

One stopped and thought the other continued to smile. “Um…yeeeaaaahh. I think…if you just go down this street here. Just here…” she pointed and looked me in the eye More >

Chatta…who what now?

Hey Team,

The last couple days have been a whirlwind of southern hospitality, baseball and inner tubes. Since being in Georgia for the first time ever I’ve already had peach cobbler with dinner twice (both made with California peaches), seen a Braves game and tubed down the Chattahooche River (Yep! Number one is a goner!).

An itinerary?!

I even got to try “sweet tea” for the first time. And let me just say, they need a better name for that stuff. Maybe ” sugar water” or “diabetes tea.” It tastes like the sugar took the tea out back and hit it over the head with a baseball bat before leaving it for dead.

Apparently I made some sort of face when I tasted it and my host, Robin, asked me if the sweet tea was too sweet, “Do you want to add some water to it?”

I thought to myself the whole point of sweet tea is that it’s sweet, right? It’s cheating to change the experience. That’s like a Spanish butcher asking if the bull testicles are too testicle-y and offering you a meatball instead.

The Braves game was intense, not nearly as intimate as Fenway but a totally different experience anyway. It was “fan More >
