Hello from San Diego!! Sunny, 70's and so not the Wisconsin autumn I'm accustomed to. I'm here for a work conference, although one may argue I haven't been doing the a-typical work normally associated with a conference. (Especially if you've been watching the nauseating amounts of selfies I've posted to my FB page).
When I haven't been yachting or hanging out on the baseball field in Petco park, I've been attending sessions about coaching for performance, managing managers, and developing statistics that make sense to your sales front. Which is ironic, because for me to do that, I'd need to make sense of statistics first and that, my friend, is not happening any time soon.
So what's the point in this horribly self-centered blog post where you're all saying "PLEASE stop talking about your trip"?
Here's a few bits of wisdom I'll impart to you:
1. Always, always wear sunscreen on a yacht. Always. Or you'll end up looking like a red glow stick on steroids.
2. Always, always refrain from drinking at parties in Petco Park. The entertainment garnered from folks well on their way to brilliant idiocy is awe-haw-some....and a tad sad.
3. Never, ever call your four year old little girl. It puts her into tears when she realizes you're not coming home today and makes what was a tolerable situation for your husband, much much worse. (Hey, I can't help it if I'm popular with my kids!)
4. Never, ever forget your moisturizer unless you want to walk ten city blocks to the nearest pharmacy
All in all, I am garnering a lot of info for writing. I might have to switch to writing a contemporary romance with suspense because I thought up about fifty ways to murder someone on yacht. Really. It's quite ingenious.
What are your off the wall travel "always" and "nevers"? C'mon. I know you have some! I need at least ten comments on here (1/per) and if I get them, I'll draw for a random winner of some coffee!
