House of Horrors 4-LYFE
Remember the House of Horrors saga?
So a few weeks ago, I was in San Francisco for six days because Adam was attending a Nerd Conference. I kept reminding myself that Organ and Becky live out there and finally, the night before leaving, remembered to ask them if they were free to meet IN REAL LIFE while I was out their way.
They both enthusiastically responded with a YES, and I was pumped. We decided that we’d meet up for brunch on our last full day there (Saturday), so I had the entire week to be nervous. In the meantime, Becky was incredibly helpful and kept giving me tips on where to go to eat, what to see and do, etc. Like my own personal tour guide. I’ve been to San Francisco four other times, but this time I checked out some new places thanks to her suggestions.
By the time Saturday rolled around, I was pretty much hyperventilating. Adam even said today that he doesn’t think he’s ever seen me that nervous. I don’t know what I was so nervous about. I wasn’t nervous about them being weirdos—I was worried about my ability to converse with semi-strangers. I felt like I was going to a job interview or blind date or something and was destined to fail. Anyway, in typical Sarah fashion, I walked into the restaurant, saw them immediately, hugged them and shouted, “I’M SO NERVOUS.” They were both sweet and gracious and we all sat down together and ate some food.
I don’t have a lot to report, which I realize is boring. We ate and chatted about normal everyday stuff. It was pretty much like getting brunch with some friends you haven’t seen in a while. A little nervy but totally normal and homey. They were seriously two of the kindest, funniest, sweetest people I’ve ever met. We truly have two new friends!
