About twelve hours after leaving Denton last night, my parents were back in town again! But this time, they brought their Model S. We took both cars to the unofficial ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Denton Superchargers. By the official count, 40 Teslas showed up, including one Roadster. It was a really nice event! Even Chris Watts, the mayor of Denton, was there, along with the dude who I think runs Denton Municipal Electric. Both of those dudes got to ride in a Ludicrous car, and a video of the mayor cussing in front of children has already been uploaded to the internet.
Dad brought his drone and hovered around for a little while, drawing a mini-crowd of his own. It was pretty funny actually; after the main festivities were over, people started pulling out whatever little gadgets they brought. Another dude was speeding around the parking lot on a Boosted Board.
Eventually, most of the crowd made it into Villa Grande for lunch. My parents and I sat across from a hilarious couple from Plano. The wife kept accidentally hitting on me and going on about how much she loves my story–everything from the Saturn to convincing my parents to get a Model S of their own. It was really funny. Tesla events are always a little weird, but they’re also super fun and interesting every single time.
Mom and Dad wanted to check out some of the neighborhoods Emily and I are trying to move into, so I took them on a little tour through town. I think they were scoping things out for a future house of their own, too. Come on down, future babysitters!
By the time they went home again, I was wiped out. I spent the rest of my evening playing the Division Beta. You know, it ends after this weekend so I pretty much HAVE to play it as much as possible. Duh.
