Copper Teeth, in truth...

Last night I heard the news that Duke Cornell aka "Copperhead" has an ice cream named after him at a local, much-beloved Ice Cream shop in the very heart of Omaha's Old Market. This took me a second to adjust to. A fellow I didn't really feel that close to in the beginning was seeing a cool moment that not that many have felt before. A little pride for my boy welled up. A little positive jealousy. A nod to my hopes that good dudes get something out of life.

In Minot, North Dakota, far from the warm comforts and trendy vibes of the Omaha Old Market, a sandwich shop Magic City Hoagies named a BLT the "Chainsaw King" BLT in a heart-warming ode to the popularity of my persona there. I simply bought a BLT one day...and then it was named after me. What an honor. What a feeling! Life can be kind sometimes.

Now Duke knows that feeling. My travel brother. Sounding board. Circumstantially-forced-to-be friend. It's cool as all heck, I hope, for him. I certainly love seeing our humble lives and hard work come to fruition. I love seeing it pay off, in any way, shape, or form. I'll take a gold bar or a dollar, as long as it was earned.

Please hop downtown to Ted & Wally's and grab some "Duke Cornell" Ice Cream for yourself. It's a treat for you and a nod to local companies that local arts, performers, and small businesses carry worth and merit. Please let them know that we're all open to growing and supporting one another.
