Detriot

Well this past week I have been a little stressed from some things and this weekend helped me a lot. On Friday a few of us went to see Rob Bell, who was in Detriot at a little theater inside the “Hockeytown Cafe” that was called “The City”. The group of ten was: Pete and Barb, Marc and Tina, Matt and Annette, Kevin and Laura, Dad and I. Rob Bell was great!! I have watched a lot of his “NOOMA” videos, but seeing him in person was awesome and I am glad that I had to opportunity to go. Well I hadn’t been up to Detriot for a few years and I was fine until we started walking around downtown Detriot at like 10:00pm. We decided to eat at Greektown. Which wasn’t too bad seeming how we road the “People Mover.” Now that wasn’t that bad. **But before I go on with my story, I gotta say something funny that happened on the “People Mover.” Well there was this one family that was getting on (after we had already been on for a little while) and it was a group of like 6-10 people in the family. Well you could tell that they were not from Detriot, cause they all lined up like single file to get in ONE DOOR!!! NOW COME ON!! YOU CAN’T GET IN ONE DOOR ON THE “People Mover” WITH LIKE 10 PEOPLE!! HECK EVEN I KNEW THAT!!! Well like half of that family got on the “People Mover” and the rest were left to fend for themselves basically they were left behind 🙂 hey! remember the “aftershave face” from Home Alone?? Well the boy looked at his father then looked out the door with that face saying, “Umm Dad…now what do we do??” And let me tell ya, it was very funny from my point of view. Okay, back to my story** Well we got off the “People Mover” and headed to a place to eat. Well I am not one for crowds, especially ESPECIALLY, in Detriot! After we got done eating and started to go back to the “People Mover,” there were people EVERYWHERE!! Then this one guy came up to us and handed us a pamphlet (yes a “Let Jesus Chirst be Your Lord & Savior one) but I looked through it and I am amazed at the information that is in it and the accuracy of the info…I digress…but that still wasn’t too bad, cause ya just take it and walk away. Well after we got on the “People Mover” and got back off at our “stop” we hadn’t been off for like 5 seconds and some guy came up to us asking for 60 cents so he could buy a pop. Then not to long after that we had to walk past some club/concert thingy that was going on and we had to walk past a lot (about 5 or so) drunk guys, which I didn’t really like either. There was this one guy on the phone talking to someone, swearing and all of that, it wasn’t the best needless to say. But after that we got back to our cars in the parking garage and Kevin had a hard time getting out of the parking garage (which was funny). But it all in all it was great night and I am glad that I got to go.
