Earlier this week I had to travel down to Kansas City and stay overnight for work.
After a busy day, I checked in to my hotel.
Which was really swanky.
And very quiet.
Where I ordered room service.
And watched the Sex & The City movie on HBO.
And fell asleep in a king size bed.
The next day, a coworker who is a mother to one small child, said to me sympathetically: "It must be so hard to travel down here and spend the night away from your children."
I nodded. It was so hard. So, so hard. But I'm just that dedicated to my job, people. If my work needs me, I will be there, pulling my weight. You know how the saying goes - there is no "I" in "Team."
There's also no "I" in "You want me to come down and stay at a hotel all by myself?? Holy crap yes!!"
But I didn't tell her that. She'll get there in about, oh...two kids from now. Give or take.
