Dear Lubbock Ex-Pat,
So you have actually got away the “great void” that’s Lubbock for what I am presuming is either Austin, San Antonio, or someplace inColorado You’ve seen a larger piece of the world, you have actually acquired some knowledge, and now you believe you’re going to come house to our little town and teach us something we didn’t currently understand. Honestly, I can’t wait to hear it.
I’ll gladly drive you to the very first Taco Villa or Rosa’s we see. If you wish to enter so you can definitely take a bath in the salsa bar, let’s do it. Let’s visit Ralph’s Records and Star Comics and you’ll bear in mind that in some cases Lubbock gets it right, perhaps even much better than the huge city.
Over by the university, it’s kinda dead so I’ll get to have Chimy’s for the very first time in a year, too. As we drink on impossibly strong margaritas the time will disappear in spite of the cold and bear in mind that thing you did at that celebration? You were so wild at that time. I can’t think we made it out alive in some cases.
They state your brand-new city is unusual, however your home town is, sometimes, totally strange, and as our shenanigans resurface we will recognize that our uniqueness, our self-reliance, and our untamed nature were created in the crucible heated up by the West Texas sun. Can you see any stars where you live now? As Lubbock grows the stars fade, however it’s a brief drive to see them as huge and brilliant as they should remain in Texas.
Are you swept away by the sundown? Fiery pinks and dark purples spilled throughout an unlimited horizon will fill your heart to burst. As you soak that in, are you keeping in mind a deep peace you have not felt in a long time? I might weep viewing your face viewing the sky.
Let’s go to our preferred bar, we’ll see numerous buddies there and you’ll trade your typical for a Chilton, I feel in one’s bones it. So numerous hugs, numerous loud exclamations of Hellos and Howdys and How Long Are You In Town? It’s boiling hot from the bodies and it feels as excellent as any fire. You’ll recognize that Lubbock is not a great void, however the cradle which bore you. And that you have actually yearned for that convenience. A convenience that is available in abundance and has actually been waiting patiently for you.
I understand you have actually got household to see, meals to consume, and errands to run. And I want to provide you up, ultimately.
Just please, sit a little spell with me.
Dedicated to my buddies which have actually gone more house than I have yet to, however definitely will at some point.
