Tulsa Houston Shuffle

Sunday I had the opportunity to drive approximately three hours from Wichita, KS to Tulsa, OK. Now, I know roadkill is everywhere but I feel like this drive put Oklahoma in the running for roadkill capital state. I've only ever seen a live armadillo once in my life (the funniest critter in the Omaha zoo) and even so I felt just terrible at the sight of all the mushed ones on the median. So sad. Also Bambie is now not only an orphan but he has no cousins, or aunts or uncles to speak of in Oklahoma.

Anyway... I got to Tulsa and arrived at our apartment only having been lost once. And that was not my fault. Tulsa is the road construction capital of the universe. I was a big girl and I figured it out all by myself.

I have two roommates--one from K-State and one from Georgia Tech. I also met a girl this morning from Pittsburgh PA. After much wondering about arrangements we made it to the Tulsa airport, onto our plane, and to Houston. We wandered around the Galleria (the biggest mall I've ever seen...also the poshy-est) for a while and I have decided to call it a night early. We are being picked up at 6:20 tomorrow morning... otherwise known as the @$$crack of dawn. I plan to be alive for it. Or as close as possible.

  1. I remember that armadillo! You're right, that was the best animal in the whole damn zoo. Suck it, giraffes.
