Ever had a Checker burger? No? You should. Although I probably won't ever eat another Checkers anything because for part of Summer '03, my good friend Alan and I worked there. We were on summer project with Crusade and had to find jobs- this was the only job available. I don't remember much of the experience except that my red Checkers shirt was way too big and I hated doing the fries because the grease would burn me.
But, at least Alan was there. I think we were at different work stations but would often look at each other and think, 'what in the world are we doing here?'. Fun experience, though! Anyway, we've kept in touch over the years, got together in the spring when he was up visiting NYC, and this past weekend I went down to Columbia, SC to attend a wedding with him. One of his co-workers got married and it was the biggest wedding I've ever been to. The entire church was packed. The reception was elegant as well and it was a lovely evening in the South.
I had never been to Columbia, but it's a beautiful city with USC nestled in the middle, lots of cute shops, a great steak house ;), and my hotel had an awesome rooftop view of the city. So the fun continues with Alan Davis!
