Hard Rock Life Volume III

I have a feeling that this blog post might get long, That’s what she said, so I’m just warning you now. 
The whole reason I went to Denver was to accompany Adam to the Conan O’Brien show.  I cannot thank him enough for inviting me to the show, flying me to Denver, and putting me up in house for this event.  So now let’s get the day started.
Sunday we woke up and went to his church, nice church, not that big of a turn out because it was Mother’s day, but still a pretty nice turn out.  I thought the sermon would be something I wanted to hear because he was talking about marriage and family and how to make your marriage strong.  Since I’m about to be married I was ready to listen and apply what he was saying.  He did give some good pointers that his parents, who have been married for 55 years, told him.  But he kept harping on how wrong co-habitation is.  Well…  Melissa and I have been co-habitating for two years now.  We know it’s not what the Bible says, but we had a unique situation that led us to living together.  Don’t get me wrong, this is not the way either of us wanted it.  We wanted to do everything right, but sometimes life happens.
After Church we went to the only restaurant that wasn't overflowing with the Mother’s Day crowd.  You guessed it, Five Guy’s.  We ate our burgers and then headed to the mall to kill some time.  We checked out the iPad at the Apple Store, and then we walked around the book store.  I just realized how nerdy that  sounds.  When we grew bored of the mall we headed back to the apartment.  Adam decided that Barkley needed to go for a good walk, so we changed clothes and struck out on an adventure. 
Nothing else exciting happened so I’ll flash forward to Boulder, the home of the University of Colorado, and the Conan O’Brien show.   Before the show we wanted to grab a bite to eat on the campus. Try some of the local college fair.  We picked a sandwich shop, the Half Fast Subs.  I was super excited when I viewed the menu and saw that they had the sandwich that I’ve been wanting to try for the better part of this year.  A Thanksgiving sandwich.  You heard me right, a sandwich made of Turkey, Dressing, Gravy and Cranberry sauce.  I’m quoting Rachel Ray here when I say “Delish”.  Throw in some locally made Kettle chips, and you’ve got yourself a meal.  I give thanks that the roof of my mouth was starting to heal so I could enjoy my Thanksgiving sandwich.   

I was going to add the Conan show to this post, but I guess this is long enough, everyone has probably gotten bored and stopped reading by now.
