Pictured above is an Italian Roast Beef Sandwich from Chicago's famous, Giordano's. YUM!
Be where you are supposed to be and you just might help to save a life.
Before the first pitch was thrown (as I was wondering how soon we might be able to leave) my friend had to use the bathroom. I didn't have to go so I waited with her daughter outside the restroom.
Within seconds a frantic man approached, grabbed my arm and told me he needed me to go into the ladies restroom for him. At first I thought he might be joking but the look on his face told me something was wrong. He continued, "I need you to go into the restroom and get me the wheel chair. There is a man choking!"
I darted into the restroom, quickly looked around and located the wheel chair. Not realizing it was one of those chairs that had a release handle, I lifted it up and swung it around toward the door. (no easy task.) I then saw the release lever and was able to shoot the chair back out through the restroom entrance. The man took the chair and disappeared.
There we were, left not knowing the choking man's fate. We had to let it go. A little shocked, we continued waiting.
Strangely, a bratwurst with mustard was the next order of business. In my head I kept telling myself, "Remember to chew your food."
Suddenly, I spotted the man who asked me to get the wheel chair. I jetted over and inquired about the choking man.
"Is the guy who was choking okay?" I asked.
Frantic man replied, "Oh, you're the lady who got the wheel chair. "Jeeze, he said, the guy was choking real bad. He was turning blue and purple and all kind of colors. Emergency personnel hadn't made it to the upper levels yet, so we needed the wheel chair to get the man down to the lower level to find help. EMTs were able to help him and get him off to the hospital. He's gonna be okay. Thanks for your help. Glad you were there."
Me too. You never know what might happen. It's good to be where you're supposed to be. Might be wherever you are right now.
The Cubs won, by the way. Sorry to the Dodger fans who sat in front of us. It was a great game and a beautiful day for baseball!
Below is a little video clip for your enjoyment.
Where else can you go, except for Wrigley Field, to watch your favorite Criminal Minds cast member, Joe Mantegna, belt out Take Me Out To The Ball Game during the Seventh Inning Stretch?!
Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach and is expelled?
(Or not... winky face.)

He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.
