Where Am I Going? And What Am I Doing in This Handbasket?

I am so ashamed. I've sunk to an all time low...and for what? Food, that's what.

I was enticed by a co-worker's announcement that he had found the best Chicago Style Hotdog outside of Chicago. If you've been reading this blog for a while, you already know that I love a good dog. The problem is that the best Chicago Dog in Springfield is in a place called The Cubbie Hole.
Um, make that in a bar called The Cubby Hole.

And so it was that this Southern Baptist Evangelist (that is a Cardinal fan) found himself in a Cub bar eating a great Chicago Dog. The Chicagoan owner assured me that the Italian Beef Sandwiches were equally as authentic as their Chicago counterparts...of course that was before my buddy ratted me out as a Cardinal fan! I'm not sure if it's safe to order food now...especially after the the Cards beat the Cubs in the first of a four game series.


If you are a Facebook friend, you already know that I'm weekending with my favorite people in the family. We are gathered in Indianapolis and I am looking forward to spending time with everybody. I've already been put to sharing magic with the little ones...and there are a bunch of them. It will be a great weekend!


Oh and a question for the English majors or Grammar police:

Is the conditional statement correctly stated...

"If I were you, I would..."
"If I was you, I would..."

Please explain.

If I were you, I would go to this site.

The bar? Send your kids in for carry out. They can run faster than you.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh for the love of a dog. . . . I think food out weighs the location of the food. . . . Now the Cubby thing well I am not sure if you can live that down. . . wasn't it kind of hard to swallow that hotdog knowing you are a die hard cards fan. :)

Much as it grieves me to be out-grammared, Mike is right. Blast! And you just KNOW that someone will dime you out for being in a bar, even though you were just looking for a hot dog, wink, nudge. I wonder if there's a reward...?
