Lost the Knack

Greetings from Beantown. It’s a miracle I made it in one piece. I have clearly lost my knack for effortless travel.

I started off the day by being late, followed by nearly leaving my wallet and passport behind on the check-in kiosk. Because I am awesome.

Of course, before the day started, there was the night before, which was a packing nightmare. I had *just* too much stuff I needed to bring (curse the work paraphernalia!) to use the carry-on roll aboard, but far too little to adequately fill my suitcase the next size up. So at the last minute I decided to throw in running shoes and workout clothes, just because.

Except, when I finally got to my hotel and unpacked, I realized that instead of my shorts, I packed a pair of Neil’s boxers that happen to be a nearly identical texture and colour. I could really use the workout though, so wish me luck finding a new pair with little hassle tomorrow.

The flights were a bit rough, but on time. I only got secondaried once, and my luggage wasn’t even inspected by the TSA, which is a rarity for me.

And now, at about 11pm in Boston, I’m aiming for bed, and hoping that when the alarm goes off at 7am, it feels more like 7 and less like 4.

    god yes. i can’t remember the last time I *wasn’t* secondaried. Then again, I carry a lot of weird (to the TSA) shit back and forth. they get highly confused when i’m dragging 4 laptops, or a collapsible brochure rack, or even resistance bands for the in-room workout. if not for my best friend Nexus, i would’ve cracked long ago.
