I like to think I'm as intelligent as the next guy, but tonight I was challenged.
I'm in a hotel in okc and decided to take a shower. I got the water running and let it get nice and hot. I was ready to step in and wash off a full day of airports. But I couldn't figure out how to switch it over to shower.
I spent a couple of minutes trying and then weighed my options. I could either
(a) fill up the tub and take a bath.
(b) call the front desk and ask how to use the shower.
By chance, I happened to see a sign hidden by the shower curtain that had directions on how to use the shower.
So, I guess I'm not the only idiot who couldn't figure out the shower.
Ike came with a vengance. I didn't decide to flee until after my family left town.
When I did leave, I decided I'd be smarter than everyone else and head south, then west, then north into San antonio. I got stuck there a couple of days, then was able to head up to DFW to be with my family.
While I was there, I remembered I had a conference I has to be at on wednesday. I found out my flight was cancelled out of houston and I'd have to depart from somewhere else.
My family went back to Houston on Monday and I had a dilemma. If I went back to h-town on Monday, I'd have to leave again on Tuesday to drive out of town to another airport. So I decided to stay. My parents offered to llet me go west and stay with them in midland for a couple of days. So, as I write this, am in an airplane...HEADED TO HOUSTON! That's right. Flights were rescheduled through houston. I'll be john brown!
Even better than that...I'm going to Oklahoma City!
