Grinning From Ear to Ear – Buffalo, NY - May 2009

So one of the hazards of living out of a suitcase is that you inevitably end up leaving something behind. Sometimes it’s a small s"omething" that can be picked up along the way, like contact solution or Q Tips. Every once in a while it’s a big "something" (even if it is small in size) that you need shipped to you, overnight, with AM delivery, which takes senior level approval, like… I don’t know, maybe a laptop cable. Then there are things that you wish you brought, but you really can justify buying. This is where I was today.

Note To Reader: I must first step back and tell you that ever since my 4th grade field trip to the circus, where the popular group of kids teased me relentlessly for wearing coin clip on ear rings, (they’d all recently gotten their ears pierced, so the clip on kind were no longer cool), I’ve had a love affair with earrings (the pierced kind). Not crazy designs, just simple ones. I don’t have that many pairs, but the ones that I do have I love.

This brings me to today when in the car on the way to the airport I discovered that I’d not only forgotten to put on my watch, which was on my bed side table, I’d forgotten to pick up a simple pair of small silver hoops that would go with everything I would be wearing during my week in Buffalo. I was sad but figured that if that was the only thing I’d forgotten than I was in pretty good shape.

Fast forward about 4 hours to me unpacking in my hotel room and look what I found residing deep within my wheeled laptop bag.

EMERGENCY EAR RINGS!!!

The crazy part is that I remember putting these in my bag when I left Dallas last fall. I put the bag away for the winter while I was using a smaller red laptop tote and completely forgot about them.

What a great surprise!!! Now me and my happy ears are gonna go get something to eat!

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!
