Orientation, Pizza, and Bowling

Travis has been attending orientation this week, learning all kinds of wonderful, new information about his school. To break up the monotony of the days lectures, the school set up special evening events. The event on Wednesday night was bowling at a place called Fat Man's. I was looking forward to meeting some new people.

Fat Man's is not far from our place and was located on a street we haven't been on yet. On the way there we found some new places such as a much closer Walgreens, a small shopping strip, and a restaurant called The Shiloh that we were told has wonderful food. Because I was not a student we had to pay for my bowling but my pizza was free. For some reason food tastes even better when you don't have to pay for it. I'm not sure where this pizza came from but it was pretty amazing. It wasn't the Chicago deep dish style but it still was mighty fine.

We started off bowling with a couple of second year students. Towards the end of our second game, Travis jumped up and started to make his way to a couple who just entered the bowling alley. I figured it was someone he had met during orientation. Alas, I was wrong. The guy who came in was wearing a Texas A&M shirt and Travis quickly honed in on the maroon ora. While talking with him we found two other Aggies within the mass of students. We began a new bowling game with the couple and chit chatted about Texas. While playing Travis found some more people from Texas--two girls who attended UT. So we finished our last game of bowling in between telling Aggie/UT jokes.

We had a really good time and enjoyed meeting new people!

They must implant that Aggie sixth sense sometime in their freshman year. Travis may have been born with it, though.
