I'm Chris. I'm currently an underpaid civil rights attorney living with my lovely wife and my adorable dog in Austin. I went to Mizzou for undergrad before spending a few years in Houston in law school. You should drop in and say hi.
Backstory: If any of you went to college outside of Texas, you are probably familiar with them hanging a Texas flag in their rooms. I’ve confirmed this was not just a thing at Mizzou.
Co-worker 1: People from Wisconsin have just as much pride as people from Texas. I don’t know what it is.
Me: But do they hang flags in their rooms?
Co-worker 1: No. I only know people from Texas who have hung flags in their rooms.
Co-worker 2: I’ve never seen this.
Me: Have you ever been around Texas people outside of their home state?
Co-worker 2: Why would someone come here from Texas?
Me: To attend to the best journalism school in the country.
Co-worker 2: I walked into that one. I admit it.
Bubba Watson was a nice little story two years ago. Now that I know he’s an anti-LGBT bigot, not so much.
One of my two friends in Austin is moving to Seattle.
In related news, I don’t know how to make friends as an adult.
The girl who cuts my hair broke her arm, so I’m going to the owner of the salon for the next few months. I have always heard you’re not supposed to tip the owner. Is that still the case?
