Just got back from work and are my feet sore. Why, you ask? Since I sit on my butt all night? Because my co-worker and I went on a field trip.
We wanted dinner. We didn’t want Keiran’s Pub (it wasn’t Wednesday and so our bartender wasn’t there and it is too expensive). We didn’t want to walk all the way to Subway. We didn’t want to order Divanni’s.
So we talked with the last Day person before he left for the night and told us to try a few of the skyway shops. Even though most close at 6pm (it was now 6:35), there should still be one or two still open.
So we got all excited. Let’s GO! So we punched out for a half hour break… and here our adventure begins.…
We started walking the skyways in the direction he said to. closed… closed… closed… closed… we past 4 subways, 5 Caribou Coffee’s, a Jimmy Johns, a Cousins subs, a few pizzerias… 8 asian places… ALL CLOSED.
So we thought, let’s keep going. We are close to city center (Which is 6 blocks away from our office bldg.)
So instead of a straight shot down the street, we were zig-zagging through the skyway. Finally, we get to City Center. Everything closed at 7pm. It was 7:30.
Let’s try Gavedaii Commons next door… all closed at 6pm… Let’s try Marshall Field’s Marketplace.…EUREKA!!!!!! LeeAnn Chin (YUMMY Orange Chicken!) So we had found food. And tons of it… we were happy. So we start walking back.… and get lost… twice…
We finally got back and realized we had a 1 and a half hour lunch/break. Yuk… But we figured we both need to get in shape, so we will walk everynight to Marshall Field’s and Back and see if we can get there and back in 1/2 hour.
So again… my feet are sore… next time wear tennis shoes and not sandals… No matter how much of a hurry your in… and light-weight clothing… some of those walkways still have the heat on!
