I haven’t lived in Kansas City since 2000, but have family and many friends there, so I visit frequently. That’s why I can say, with much confidence, that Daniel Mueller, Digital Editor at Sun Times Network, is…
He recently posted a list of the Top Ten Mexican Restaurants in Kansas City and did not include my personal favorite:
When I return to Kansas City, a trip to Margarita’s is always at the top of my list. I love their chips and salsa, their nachos, their daily specials, and signature margaritas, too. Plus, the general vibe of the place is just casual and comfortable and feels like home.
Don’t get me wrong — there are some great Mexican restaurants on Daniel’s list. But if a friend or visitor to Kansas City asked me where to go, I’d still point them to the place on Southwest Boulevard…
…with the flood line on the wall.
It’s hard to believe it’s been over three years since I first saw The Trip starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
And I watched it again.
I still laughed at the two comedians’ competitive conversations and celebrity impressions. But this time I found myself trying out a few of the characterizations — with very limited success.
Why can’t I do impressions better? And why are they so darn good?
Obviously they have invested far more than 90 minutes towards this endeavor, but I wonder if I would be able to achieve any success with a lifetime of practice.
Do the Brits just have an edge?
I say yes. (This stance saves me a lot of time and effort.)
It’s getting worse instead of better.
I had to have another closed MRI yesterday, and unlike my experience a couple of years ago, I was a bit of a wreck.
The technician used all the bells and whistles to calm my fears — and trick my brain — into thinking I wasn’t in a narrow, closed tube.
But they didn’t work this time.
When I got home, I started reading up on possible therapies, cures even, for this debilitating fear. Guess what the first recommendation is?
Get an MRI.
Because as many people as possible should see this…
I have been on vacation in Central Kentucky this week.
It’s in my rear view mirror now, but the memories are crystal clear.
