I guess my daughter was had some mixed feelings at the airport. She was excited to be going to France for the week. I think she was a bit nervous too. I know that she did not enjoy my joke when she picked up her boarding pass and dropped off her luggage. The person at the check in counter asked Sara if her luggage included any electronic cigarettes. I found the question an odd one for a 13 year old girl - so I told the person behind the counter that my daughter only smoked Marlboro's. Although the gate person thought this was pretty funny, neither my wife nor daughter found this even slightly humoruous....apparently they were not in a humorous mood.
THE BENEFITS OF A LATE NIGHT WALK
It was an extremely busy day yesterday. We had an appointment at our synagogue to get some (December) Bat Mitzvah details squared away. Then there were some final preparations for the trip to Paris. We drove to O'hare airport and battled traffic and construction for the entire trip. We said 'Bon Voyage' to our daughter. Then we battled traffic and construction in the opposite direction as we headed home. A quick shopping trip followed by a quick dinner at Mariano's. We finally arrived home shortly before 10PM. It would have been very easy to simply skip a day of exercise. Addicts do not skip days. I suited up in some warm clothes and took your basic 10 mile walk through the streets of Chicago, I ended my day with 25000 steps.... Since my 10 mile walk did not complete until 1AM - I will begin today, Saturday, with 5000 steps 'in the bank.' This is surely a benefit of a late night walk.
