Hello from Chicago! It feels like I spent all day en route to getting here, which is dumb, because it’s not really all that far away from where I live. Still, once you figure the ride to the ride to the airport, the time in the airport, the flight, the shuttle from the airport… it’s been kind of a long day.
Two items of note before I go to bed:
1) For the first time in a long time, I didn’t attempt to smuggle any contraband hair product through TSA; everything I had was regulation size. So you can imagine my consternation when a TSA agent tried to confiscate my (very expensive) dry shampoo, telling me that it was “too big.” I had to ask him several times to please read the size on the can, and finally he did—3.4 ounces, totally regulation—and then he very politely apologized. “You can’t go just taking a girl’s hair product, dude,” I said to him. “That’s just MEAN.” He cracked a tiny smile, and the (female) agent next to him harumphed “Men!” at me and he just lost it, laughing.
2) While I was traveling today, the owner of the domain biscuit.us emailed me to ask if I’d like to buy it, because I own “the similar domain, wouldashoulda.com.” He is asking $300 for the domain, which I think we can all agree is a bargain at any price. Upon seeing this email I immediately sent it on to Otto, telling him that it had made me laugh out loud in the airport. He mailed back to say he thinks I should buy it. I agree; once I snap it up, I shall change this blog’s tag line to “Woulda Coulda Shoulda: SIMILAR TO BISCUITS!”
