Ol' Blue...

Did I ever tell you the story about Blue?

When I was in college all those years ago, I worked part-time in a computer store in downtown Rolla.

Blue was this guy who wandered in off the street one day. He walks in one Saturday morning and goes "I need a meeting." I had no idea what he meant, but the guy working with me knew that he meant an AA meeting, and just happened to know who to call.

Next he tells us how he hasn't eaten in a week, so we set him up with a ride to Waffle House (all you could eat at the time) and I took him in and paid for him. When I dropped him off, he says "Thank God you guys came along. I was afraid I was going to have to mug a senior citizen or something."

I never learned Blue's last name.
