We survived the drive, getting here just before midnight last night, which meant that morning came far too early, especially the part where the booby trap alarm clock sounded off at 5:30 a.m., a full two hours before my wake-up call.
I did manage to get a shower and some coffee before shuffling downstairs to the conference, where, despite this being Boston and it being the last week in November, the air conditioners were blowing hard, keeping the temperature in the session rooms hovering around 30 below. That kept me awake for the first five minutes, after which I fell into a hypothermic catatonic stupor, until I came up to the room during lunch to steal the eiderdown from the bed to wrap up in for the afternoon sessions.
After the day’s sessions were over, I returned to the room to find that Mama and her mom had found a cute way to payback 3B for the seven hours of crying in the car yesterday. He loves it now, but the payback comes when he brings those prospective girlfriends or boyfriends over and we bust out these adorable pictures–and if you think this is the only one of him in this hat, you underestimate me.
“Yes, that’s a dog on his head. Isn’t he cute? Don’t you just love the little dog ears hanging down over his ears? Aren’t they adorable?”
