Scenes from Peel

17 Jan

While waiting for a table (always worthwhile) to celebrate Jarrod’s new job, two high school students sat down next to me in their Roxana lettermen’s jackets.

A businessman in a loosened tie with beer in hand walks passed them, pauses, and says, “R? What’s R?”

The boys reply, “Roxana…”

The businessman nods his head and moves to the other end of the bar. The boys then go into a ten minute diatribe about the amazing history and relevance of the town of Roxana.

Did you know that they have the second largest refinery in the United States and the eighth largest in the world? I didn’t, but I do now.

Apparently the one boy’s dad thinks the largest American refinery is in Texas.

Is my table ready yet?

As a matter if fact it is.
