Room Temperature

This post made me laugh and reminded me how structured The Vance's bedtime routine is as well. One must not veer for a moment lest The Vance remind you that you are not following proper procedure.

On a related front, when I arrived home this morning, fresh off the red-eye from Tel Aviv, MHW told me that The Vance woke her up in the middle of the night asking for "room temperature water".

Luckily, or so she thought, MHW had within reach The Vance's sippy cup with plenty of room temperature water. Alas, The Vance did not want THAT room temperature water but, instead, fresh room temperature water, presumably from the water cooler.

Finally, on a totally unrelated note, all hail Ambien! I'm not worthy!

I slept somehwere between 7 and 8 hours straight last night depite sitting in the back of the bus (row 56, to be exact) with the seat in front of me pushed back to within 3 inches of my face. Here's how it goes: Glass of wine, a little bit to eat, one Ambien slow release pill, Bose Noise Reducing headphones, blinders....voila!!! Next thing you know it's 3 a.m. Eastern time and breakfast is served.

    Glad you got back safe... even if you did have to suffer with cattle class for a change. :-)

    Difficult experiences like last night's are what make a man tough.

    Throw in a little Single Malt and a Xanax and you get the dream package too!

    BTW, David, Ben bought a very nice bottle of scotch at the airport (completely ignoring your needs)....Let's hope he comes to his senses while he's in New York.

    Oh great... now Ben's gone over to the dark side.
