That One Time I Moved to Denver

Keith and I just moved into a house. Together. Big steps people, big steps. We had been doing a ridiculous amount of commuting just to feed our addiction to each other. I would take the bus to Denver and spend the night at his place, and then he would come to Boulder in the morning and go to work.

Sometimes, I think about pizza, but mostly it’s tacos. I often wonder, “how many tacos can I eat when I get home?”. It has come to the point where I now need real-time data on...
