That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore
In my past lives, I didn't mind work-travel. What the hell has happened these last few months?
No offense to those of you who are parents, but I am beginning to hate children. HATE them.
Special lines at the PHL airport to let families through - even though everyone else has been waiting in the TSA line for - get this - almost one and a half hours? But you get to stroll up and to through because you forgot to use protection? To be honest, I'm not sure if it's the kids or you that I'm beginning to despise.
And to the lady on the plane with her two kids who are dressed in Batman outfits - it is a frickin' 52 minute flight from PHL to CLE. Why exactly do your kids have to go the bathroom twice - each!??! And why do you have to take them?? It is a 60 seat jet, no one is kidnapping them. And finally - how, How, HOW did you fit all three of you in that fucking bathroom?? It is not like your kids are 2 and 3 years old. They were like 6 and 7! It's a little amazing and a LOT disturbing. Anyway - I hate you all.
Anyway, Philly was good. All work and one great meal. If you're ever in town I highly suggest you going to Buddakan (yes, insert Cheap Trick joke here). You know I would much rather moan about stuff than praise it, but I can't say enough good stuff about this place. We had a selection of six or so appetizers and the same amount of entrees - each one better than the last. The homemade doughnuts were incredible too. I give it 5 stars.
As for the above image? I was on the way to the airport and found myself sitting in front of a construction mess......and Independence Hall. I snapped the pic before the light turned green and we took off.
