I have this theory in my head… not so much a theory as it is a reflection. Katy and I do our own loads of laundry. I know, we have been married for more than 3 years and yet…this is how it is… it works for us. The last items that I put away when I do laundry are my socks. I think matching socks before folding them and putting them away is akin to balancing your check book. Nothing brings you greater joy than making sure you have your number matched… or your socks for that matter. I might be exaggerating but you get my drift.
I was in California last week. Booking things online can be easy and convenient but sometimes they can be quite annoying as well. ALL my flights (Grand Rapids to Minneapolis; Minneapolis to Sacramento; and back) involved yours truly sitting in the middle seat. Maybe its just me, but very rarely do I get to sit next to somebody who smells better than feet. Mullets seem to be making their way back… but really I think they never did go out of style in some cases.
Anyway, I digress, I had a wonderful trip out west. Escaping from the wintry clutches of Michigan was going to be fun but except for the sunshine, California remained pretty chilly. I even got to see a minivan on Interstate 5 with snow on the roof. It was a little surreal, it was still California…sunshine, palm trees and buildings designed for warmer climates but there was snow and winter coats. I got to meet some wonderful people who hosted me and were able to show me a part of the US that I was not really familiar with. I was a little concerned about driving on the freeways in California… but those worries were really unfounded. My dad always said, if you can drive in India, you can drive anywhere in the world. He was right!:) On my flight back I got to sit next to one Mr. Lincoln Brewster. His band was on the way to some gig in Cleveland… I did not know who he was… hence when we introduced ourselves… I repeated… oh..Lincoln Rooster… nice name. Anyway… cool band… we had a great chat. I did not realize how big they were till I “googled” them later on.
My 2008 has been quite top-heavy with traveling. I do enjoy the travels but I am looking forward to sticking around for a couple of months in March and April. I hope you are well today and staying out of the slush that seems to have over-whelmed Holland, Michigan!
