Dinner with the boys

Every Monday, a group of guys would meet for dinner. Usually at 7pm, just before dinner, they would make it a point to visit people who were sick, just to encourage and pray for them. Then at 8pm, the guys would decide where to go for dinner.

Two days ago, they didn't visit anybody. Not sure what the reason was, but they wanted to meet for dinner at Fireworks. Rachel and I were in town and we decided to join the boys. We all had western food.

I thought it was going to be a boring night because usually the guys would talk about football and other non-interesting stuff. But I was wrong.

The restaurant was playing some oldies. We were enjoying ourselves talking while listening to the songs played when suddenly Eddie asked... "what's the title and artist of this song?". We were listening to "American Dream" but nobody knew the title of the song let alone the artist.

Our conversations from then on were about artists, songs and later.. movies. We talked about Beatles, Elton John, Clay Aiken, Freddy Mercury & Queens, Barcelona Song, New Kids on The Block (NKOTB), Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, Cindy Lauper.. gosh.. what else?... so many artists, some of whom were way before my time. Then we moved on to movies. It's more of a "remember this movie?" kind of talk. These guys knew so much about this kind of entertainment. I was really impressed. I went home knowing so much more than when I left home that morning. :)

A.Chris.. yeah. getting old. Must hang out with the youths too, to get to know the current artists... :)

Anne - Yeah, I heard the pork burger is good, but I didn't order that. I had a bite from Eddie's. :)

mfwrachel - Many people listens to music and most will take the effort to find out about the artists. :)
