Changing Things Up

I think it's time for me to start going out in public again, to start trying to be social once again. I caught myself thinking this morning, while brushing my teeth, that my life was beginning to get mundane, tedious, and this after only two weeks at home without going out. I am truly a social creature.

I've also decided to change things up a bit. I can't go to my regular trivia group thanks to the stairs at the location. For the time being it's best for me to keep my distance from the Cat 'n Fiddle. So that leaves me free to make some new choices, to choose new venues, new nights, new people. There are a lot of possibilities, choices to make, places to go and see. It will take a while for me to find my footing in this new world, but life is, after all, just one big adventure.

There are a couple of things I am looking for in choosing a place to go. First, and foremost, any place I go has to work for my wheelchair. Secondly, it has to be a friendly place with a welcoming atmosphere, preferably something with character and history. Third, trivia, I don't care about what night of the week so much as I do about consistency, availability, and fun. Oh, and beer would help too.

There must be places like this in Calgary, places where I will fit in. With any luck, some of my friends will join me, assuming it doesn't conflict with Tuesday nights. Maybe something on a Monday night, or any other night but Tuesday. I still need to keep one night a week open for dinner with my daughter Kate. Fortunately Katherine is encouraging me to do this, so she is open to whatever nights work.

So it's up to me now. I'm off to find adventure, or at least a new trivia hangout. Given who I am and what I am, I have no doubt I will find something fun and interesting. The searching itself will be enjoyable. Who knows what might happen?
