So we were standing in line at Oak Park Mall ...

The sports store was next to the cookie shop on the corner, we were near the carousel - a distance of maybe two blocks.

Anyway, so I'm talking to an old friend and I turn around and there's ... Coach Henrickson!

a rough transcript

Me: Hey, Coach!

Coach: Hi, what's going on here?

Me: You're kidding, right?

Coach: No, really.

Me: Everyone is here for Mario Chalmers' book signing.

Coach: Well, I've been out of town doing some recruiting. Shouldn't he be playing in the NBA summer league?

Me: He must be taking a break, he's been doing this for two to three days. Well, cool, good luck with recruiting and have a good summer!

*at some point my daughter squeals "Coach Bonnie" and they exchange high fives*

It was a pretty good day, all in all ...
