I was about 10 minutes early for my reservation at Ghost Runners Brewery and Kitchen. I’m glad Jeff encouraged me to make a reservation because I could tell the outdoor seating was already packed. I walked in and was welcomed by the warmth and the smell of pizza being made in the Kitchen. I ordered one of my favorite local beers, the Phantom Rojo. I grabbed the pint of the Imperial Red goodness, and took my seat outside.
As I waiting for the dudes to join me, I sipped on the beer and glanced at the food menu. The rain began to pour a little heavier and was soon joined by a chilly breeze. I began to think about how much I missed meeting friends and family indoors, and how different this Thanksgiving is going to be. I took another sip of my awesome beer choice, and stared at the already half empty pint glass. I kept staring and staring, until I finally asked myself; “Is the glass really half empty? Or is it half full? I’ve always been the glass is half full kind of guy, so why am I seeing this pint as half empty?”
I looked at the pint glass a little bit longer, and then it hit me.
