I went out to Midtown to buy a ticket for a childhood best friend‘s show at Carnegie Hall. Yeah, weird right? I didn’t know until that day he was performing. And why? I don’t really know. I recently found out he’s a famous author, but I didn’t understand why he was performing at Carnegie Hall.
Anyway, I passed by this Thai food cart (Tuk Tuk Boy) on the way back to work. I got the Chicken Pad Thai $7. I had to ask for the hot chili sauce. And it had some Easy Points scan code sticker on the package. I don’t know what that is.
The Pad Thai came out quick and pretty good. All the ingredients were all separated in the box. Like I had to mix it up. It was good.

So that night I went to see my old friend. I contacted him on Twitter. First time we communicated in over two decades.
The show was crazy. Everyone was thirteen years old, female and I think Swedish. And they went crazy when he and his younger brother said anything. It was like the Beatles were playing. It’s weird. Any time I think of his younger brother, I picture a 5 year old kid and I hear that voice in my mind. But they’re all grown up now and apparently successful. I think I’m a little bit jealous. But I guess I do okay.
Even though I didn’t understand one thing at the show (What was going on? Why are people going crazy? What is this show about?) …I do remember him being really smart and forthgoing. So I would’ve imagined it would end up this way.
