Hi, and you are?

I think I’m only at home for about 10 days this month. That’s fine with me. I haven’t traveled since the beginning of November. Worst thing is that I did have a few trips lined up. They were all just cancelled. That's neither here or there though. Moving on.

I don’t know why people complain about traveling. I guess if there was someone at home missing them I can see the reason. For me, not so much. So I try to travel as much as possible. I enjoy traveling on the company dollar. Pup enjoys being able to do whatever at the house too so it’s a win-win. I just have to remember to keep the liquor cabinet stocked and he’s fine.

Something made me think of this the other day when I was sitting at the hotel.

Back when I was in high school, my girlfriend then and I used to go to hotels around the city. We would pretend to be someone else. We had great names picked out and everything. Many times there were all these silly scenarios that were involved too. We generally didn’t check into a room (mainly cause we were too young to rent a room), but we would hang out and chat with travelers in the lounge areas and such. You would be amazed how fun that is.

I tell ya, finding someone that would do that with ya is damn near impossible.

I still do that sometimes when I travel. I would come up with an entire profile during the flight. A whole new persona. I sometimes travel with photos of my nephew and niece which I’ve made up numerous stories about. That always seems to get me in good with a certain population.

No one with photos of kids can be bad right? Ok, nevermind. That probably sounded creepy.

I don’t know why it is that I do this. Am I bored with who I am? Am I not living up to my own expectations? Is it just silliness? Is this just a mental disorder?

Who knows?

What I do know is that it used to be very fun when I had someone to do this kind of silliness with.
