You’ve Gotta Have Friends

hot-wingsOur youngest son Kyle is a senior business economics/business finance major(s) at Boise State University.

You can stop laughing now. It’s true, he takes after his mother on this one.

Okay, let’s get this straight right now. I married WAY over my head. But then again, my high school classmates who read this blog had already made that presumption by the end of the first paragraph…

Something wonderful recently happened, not only to the community at BSU, but to the entire city of Boise. Yes, Buffalo Wild Wings finally opened a franchise there.

What is important to note is apparently this company offers free wings for a year to the first 100 people in line when they open their doors for the first time. Kyle had gotten home after a long day at school and then work, around 11:00 pm. That’s when his econ-buddies called and said they were already in position in line to win their fantastic, amazing, almost-as-good-as-college-grant-money windfall. They called Kyle because they wanted him to be just as fantastic as they were by joining them.

Kyle had been functioning for a while on five hours of sleep each night due to his schedule. He wanted to go, but realized he needed to pass.

The next morning shortly before 9am, Kyle was awoken from his best sleep in several weeks by a frantic phone call. His friends said that there were only about 40 people in line and that he needed to get down to the well known wing place and secure his place in college-life…infamy.

I’m really not exaggerating here with infamy. C’mon. These are American college students who convince themselves that Top Raman is a major component on the food pyramid…

In his great wisdom, and with the clear and present information from his friends of how much this windfall will actually be worth over a year (these guys are economics majors – they’ve had all night to figure it out), Kyle ripped down to the new store.

Yes, the joy that would befall his friends would rest on his shoulders as well. And yes, as of this writing, EVERY coupon he could spend from his book of BWW tickets has been spent.

Smart boy…

Good friends…

When was the last time you went out of your way to let your friends in on your own windfall/opportunity/FREE WILD WINGS?
