Anyway my original intent was to bring Joe and the kids, but I was speaking on a Saturday afternoon, and everyone has school or work on Monday (I'm actually on call tomorrow night), and in the end it didn't make financial sense to buy four plane tickets to fly in for, like, a day and a half. So instead I just looked at all the other kids on the beach and felt morose.
Anyway, this morning I took a really early morning flight home and took my kids to the playground and Lo, everyone was happy.
Hope you had a good weekend too. And if you live in Atlanta and are thinking about rupturing your aortic aneurysm anytime soon, please do me a favor and try not to do it tomorrow night OK THANKS BYE.
