I have another one. Mike, as we all know, had a different way of viewing the world. We are talking about the guy that thought football would be much more interesting if there were land mines on the field!
I wish I could have spent a day in Mike’s head. It would have certainly been an interesting trip.
A ‘moment’ I had once with Mike that I will never forget. We had just finished playing a game of tennis. We went back to my house to play some video games.
Mike was thirsty still from the tennis and asked if he could have some water. I had a large orange water container that I use to carry around for tennis.
I said sure, of course.
Mike proceeded to pour water into a glass from my container of somewhere around a gallon of water.
Punchline: He handed ME the glass of water, and started drinking from my thermos!
That’s not normal. But again, it was one of the many compelling reasons to hang with Mike. It was always interesting, never dull when Mike was around.
