Guess Where?

Guess where I am again? Back home on Thursday. Three days of traveling for a 3 hour meeting.

I don't normally complain about flying, and I don't want to turn this into the Blog o' Scorn, but the flight out yesterday was the perfect storm of miserableness: heavy turbulence from Kansas City to Albuquerque (on a full bladder), cabin temperature way too hot, video system not working (hence, no movie), audio system not working, and add to that, a persistent chatterbox sitting in the middle seat next to me.

Imagine this: "Hi, I'm Tom." (Hand extended for handshake.) "What's your name? What do you do? Where do you live? What kind of work is it that your company does? Hey, is that 'hyoo-muss' in your snack pack? What is 'hyoo-muss', anyway?" (It's a garden soil additive. You mean hummus.) "What kind of beans is it made from? Wow, Garbanzo. Cool. Hey, are those mountains out there?"

Oy, vey.
