well, I'm about to prove that it happened. But first my notes.
I was all for waiting, since I had had the foresight to eat beforehand (the particular member of Ben's fleet* we took is the only one that ever induces car sickness in me), but Ben and AD trumped me :p. I also think it wise to point out the lols of us meeting at Kerby's Coney Island. Coney Islands are very much a southern Michigan thing, but for those fo you who aren't familiar with the term? Chili dogs. LOL Chili dogs. Oddly, I was the only one who didn't get one, as I generally don't like hot dogs. My burger and fries were awesome though. Also, on the way to the arcade I had my very first Orange Jullius. Too bad it's a milk product. :(
We also did some drooling over the gamestop and reminiscing about Babbages. Ahh, the good old days. The arcade we stopped at... I don't remember the name, but it had an eagle. LOL Americana, lol Eagleland TV tropes. :3
At some point, I don't remember how, we ended up mentioning Dateline NBC. I don't need to explain the jokes that ensued. You can guess.
IIRC, Ben also made a crude joke about my last name.
Anyway, the better of the two pictures is attached. Ben was extremely worried we wound run into someone he doesn't like, so he wasn't on the ball about telling us he was taking pictures. That's why I look so nervous and have my eyes closed. >_<
* Ben's Fleet is his collection of vehicles. Some are not his, but he has access to them. He owns about five cars, his mom leaves one of hers at the house, and then he can borrow his grandparents' whenever the heck he wants. So the fleet consists of about seven vehicles, four of which are classic cars and two of which I can actually drive. The count goes up to eight if you count my car. Hypothetically I could have driven the one we took that day, a lol Pontiac, but I'm too inexperienced for anything south of M-46, I kid you not.
