One thing you should understand about me and Courtney is that we don't really do anything when we hang out together. What I mean by this is that we are not the type of people who enjoy running around doing touristy things. I didn't come to San Antonio to see San Antonio, I came here to see Courtney and Dave. Call me a lazy pile of poo, but I am perfectly happy to sit around knitting with Courtney.
Most people would agree that when you are in San Antonio you should at least consider visiting the Alamo. I did consider visiting the Alamo, but then I realized that I didn't want to go to the Alamo. A simple drive-by could fulfill all of my Alamo needs. On Friday, Courtney and I drove past the Alamo in her car and had the following conversation:
Kitty: So, this is a little embarrassing, but what exactly happened at the Alamo?
Courtney: I'm not entirely sure, but I do know that we should Remember the Alamo.
Kitty: Well, yes, I know that. But why? Why do we Remember the Alamo?
Courtney: Many brave Texans died at the Alamo.
Kitty: But why? Why were they fighting?
Courtney: The Alamo was under attack and the Texans valiantly defended her sacred borders.
Kitty: Who was attacking and why?
Courtney: Well, they were trying to steal The Alamo from the Texans.
Kitty: So, what you are saying is that you don't know anything about The Alamo either?
Courtney: Yeah, uh-hmm. I don't exactly know why we Remember the Alamo.
Kitty: Well, I know it didn't turn out very well for the Texans, and that is why we have to Remember the Alamo.
Courtney: You know, when I first moved to Texas I didn't understand that the Texans lost the battle at The Alamo.
Kitty: Well of course! Even I know that. Why else would we Remember the Alamo?
Courtney: Well, I thought maybe it was a good sort of remembering. You know like "Hey Kitty, remember that time I was obsessed with Starbursts and then when we got to our Juilliard auditions the vending machine was full of Starbursts and I was convinced that it was a good omen? Remember?"
Kitty: So you thought it was like, "Hey! Remember the Alamo? That was awesome."
Courtney: Yeah, uh-hmm. That's what I thought.
Kitty: We are so retarded.
Courtney: Yeah. Let's not tell Dave about this conversation.
Kitty: Agreed. How about I write all about it on the internet?
Courtney: Well yes, obviously.
