windy city brats

I would like to share some memorable dialogue from my beatific weekend in Chicago.  No, I did not take this picture.




___________________________
At the house after we ate lots of food and guacamole...
Michael: Here is a set of keys for you Shelby.
Shelby: Oh, thanks.


The next night...
Michael sees keys on table.
Michael: Oh Shelby you keep those keys so whenever you come you can always get in.
Nika: NOOO!!!  Why does she need our keys?!?!?
Michael: Just let her have them.  I thought it would be nice.  We can make another copy.
Nika: NOO!!! It's our spare set.
Shelby: That was a very nice gesture Michael but I don't think I need a set of keys to your house.

Walking home from the train station...
Nika says something bratty...
Shelby stomps down the stairs...
Michael says,


"Nika, I can't believe you.  Look, you made the nicest girl in all of America mad.  She's stomping down the stairs!"

Getting up in the morning...
Me (in a sweet precious voice): "Nika...Nika...Nika..."
Nika: "WHAAAAA?!?!?!"
Me: "Come out I'm leaving soon."
Nika walking out of her room sneezing and sniffing and coughing: "What God awful disease did you bring with you Shelby?"
Me: "I didn't make you sick but now I have dog hair all over me."
Nika: "Serves you right."




Then Nika got mad at me because I didn't know how to get to the train station.  


I think she hit me at one point.


Then I hugged her.


She was a little resistant.


Then we said good-bye and she said something snotty, so I pulled her hair.


Then Michael said,


"I think I'm going to trade you in for Shelby.  She's not so bratty."

It was a really great weekend.


I love them.


I google imaged "I love Chicago."  This is what I found.  So on my next trip we are going to meet up and kiss all afternoon in front of the giant bean.  Don't worry we'll take pictures.


To be continued.
