Bad things happen when I leave my phone in the car.
First, I find out that I missed out on a sweet Craigslist deal for a set of nightstands ($75! All wood!) because I didn’t text the seller back fast enough. Then, I missed immediately seeing cute pictures of my niece (She’s cuter every day! I might miss a particularly cute moment!). But a handful of mentions on Twitter is what really cut me deep:
AP Crafters Kitchen and Bar is closed?
*Darth Vader voice* NOOOOOOOOOOO!
I saw the signs, but maybe I just couldn’t admit that one of my favorite restaurants was heading for that dusty trail to Restaurant Heaven. The last time I ate there (oh, my gosh, how was I supposed to know it would be my last time?), there was only one other couple in the place, and it was a game night, so the restaurant should’ve been packed. I even saw moving trucks in the parking lot yesterday, but I thought, “Oh, look, they’re getting new furniture.”
I can’t believe AP Crafters is gone. No more pretzel breadsticks. No more gummy bears on the way out. NO MORE BEER CHEESE BURGER.
*Shakes fist toward the heavens*
If anyone has any answers for this loss or remembrances, please take it to the comments. I need to drink this wine and hold Roscoe tight. And remember, keep your phone on you at all times, or your favorite restaurant gets it.
