One of the great things about my new gig is that I get to travel. I'm thrilled. This mystifies my dad. He said, "If you like business travel, you haven't done it enough."
I was thinking of this today as I waited for the National Rental Car bus at the Memphis International Airport today. I was exhausted, hungry, cold, stressed and with a full bladder ... and it started to rain. It didn't seem very glamorous right about then. I still had a great week, learned a lot, met great folks, saw some cool stuff.
That said, I relish the thought of being in my own bed tonight.
While I was gone my dad stayed in my place, which meant a little vacation for my mom and some completed chores for me upon my return. He loved it and cannot wait to come live here again. In fact, rather than saying, "I told you so" when I explained my business travel predicaments, he said, "Um, when are you leaving town again?"
