CHAPTER TWENTY TWO: Overstating the Obvious

Wherein our hero has a 'duh' moment.

[Saturday afternoon, October 4th, Junction Center, Peoria Heights, IL]

" 'Whaddya expect? It's been twenty years?' True. Also begs the question of what I was expecting from this trip. I guess that scab has fallen off and even the scar has faded almost completely away."

A ridiculously common sense question leading to the more interesting issue. I think I have to admit that the event was about what I expected it to be. However, it was not at all what I wanted it to be. And there you have it. That moment of fantastic disappointment when reality collides with expectation.
