Karma

Spencer and I went on our first date 3 years ago today.


We went to the Nickelcade. An arcade featuring plenty of games for only a few nickles. Spencer lost his contact and spent over $20.00 in arcade games. I was in heaven. We ended the night by trading in our tickets for cheap paper Asian fans that lasted maybe 40 seconds. Since then the Nickelcade has closed down, so even if we wanted to go back and reinact this picture, it wouldn't be possible.


We had a second date a short while later where we attended a choir concert at the Provo Tabernacle to see our friend Eric. He was singing with the BYU Men's Chorus. Spencer claims I flirted with Eric from over 100 feet away. Now that is talent. We haven't been to a choir concert since.


In the early hours of December 17, 2010 the Provo Tabernacle was consumed by flames. The historic landmark lost the roof, stain glass windows, the organ and everything else inside. We have always loved going to the Provo Tabernacle for our stake conference and other events.

I'm hoping that the closure and destruction of these two buildings isn't suppose to mean anything about our future...

Hahaha oh my gosh. Karma is right! But the good thing is... all this crappy stuff is happening to places you have BEEN and not happening to you guys going back to those places... so I guess just don't retrace any of your steps and you'll avoid Karma catching up with you! ;)

I don't know what's more sad, Nicklecade shutting down or the Tabernacle burning down...what a sad post! JK!!!(Tabernacle way sadder, although Nickelcade was fun...even though half the machines ate my money and didn't work. I am sure you're future is bright!
