While talking with my big brother during the 4th inning.
Me: So I know it’s a long shot, but do you think you, Dana and the kids would come to Columbia to have lunch with me on the 14th?
Him: Of what?
Him: For? Just to do it?
Me: Well, seeing as how I am leaving the country the next day, it would be good to see everybody.
Him: Hmm. Yeah, we don’t really drive 100 miles to eat lunch with someone who will be back in 2 weeks.
Me: You don’t know that.
Him: Tell ya what. If you go down in the Atlantic, we promise to say nice stuff about you.
