so far

  • 21 hours from Edinburgh door to Schaumberg hotel door
  • Jet lagging with a cold

things I am already grateful for

  • the offer of rye as a toast option at the breakfast buffet
  • pickles in my virgin bloody mary with lunch
  • a cheerful attitude so eager and nice that you would think it fake if you didn't know better from customer service
  • Nice Polish immigrant taxi driver who won a Green Card lottery in his 60s
  • cold that hurts your teeth and makes your eyes water
  • the immediate and plentiful water on the table as soon as you sit down
  • the cute young French bellman who just drove me to Target so I could stock up on cold
  • supplies, kleenex with lotion and a few sale tops
  • the flat screen TV in my room, where I am going to retire now with my Target goods and my jam jams... only to resurface for my coaching class tomorrow morning

Good night America
