A couple quotes from San Francisco:
A doctor moderator at a boring meet I was in: “I think there would be a confounding effect based on mathematical coupling.”
One homeless guy to another homeless guy: “I swear I didn’t hit the buy it now button 12 times, I only hit it 2 times.”
And the weirdest exchanges requires a bit of explanation. I was leaving a hotel and needed to grab a cab, there was a cab parked outside next to the curb. As I approached the cab, I realized no driver was inside. I saw two people down the road smoking and said:
Me: “Excuse me, are either of you the driver of this cab?”
Two people down the road: “Excuse me?” and then they started walking towards me.
Me: “I’m going to the Hilton, can either of you take me there?” while pointing to cab.
Two people down the road: “The Hilton, sure, that’s not too far away.”
The 3 of us start walking towards cab and about to open door, just before I open the door:
Two people down the road: “There’s no driver in this cab, how are we going to get there?”
Me: “Whoa, I thought you drove the cab, I think we got a mix up here.”
I immediately ran back into the lobby and waited for the strange people moved on.
San Fran was terrific, every twist, turn, alley, and hill brought along new sights and sounds. There’s the bay, great seafood, music, markets, rich, poor, bright and dull. The city just had everything and everyone that I was traveling with mentioned how they walked until their feet were blistered. The city makes you want to see it. I caught the red eye on Tuesday night, probably will never do that again, I was totally useless on Wednesday.
Softball is supposed to start this Sunday, I haven’t touched a bat or ball since last season.
I’m off to Orlando all next week…I’m sick of traveling.
The kids bathroom sink was dripping all day and night for a couple weeks, it is fixed now and that gives me peace of mind.
When I was away, Jaclyn reported a funny exchange between her and Winston. Winston fell asleep in our bedroom and Jac picked him up to put him in his bed. When Jac picked him up, he woke and asked why he was being moved. Jaclyn told Winston that he needs to sleep in his own room, plus he snores really loud. Winston replied, “I snore loud to keep the ghosts away.”
