I rather dislike the saying "Hindsight is 20/20." It's just a polite academic way of saying "I could have told you so, moron." And if I think about it for a minute, I told myself. Then promptly ignored my own instincts and created an alternate reality that has not panned out.
Perhaps later after
shopping the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale for 8 hours drinking heavily gaining some distance from the situation, I will detail my issues. For now, I'll do an Ups & Downs list, with emphasis on the 'Ups' because the 'Downs' are clearly distressing my readers (LOVE YOU GUYS! Sorry to make you fret!). Here, the first Up:
I have looked positively fantastic during this trip (Down: Did not take pictures, until this morning).
Maybe it's the magical Westin Heavenly Mirrors.
Trying for a whimsical outlook.
Check out at that hair! Unbelievable, folks. I should take it shopping.
Another Up: I remembered to pack my slippers.
Cozy, sequined, and only $1 at a garage sale. We're in love.
Up: Free popcorn in swag bags. Down? Westin had no microwave to offer us. Up: Room service picked up, popped, delivered on a tray.
We ate every kernel while watching the uproariously funny Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
Seriously, I feel better about the day ahead so no need to send psychotherapists, medication, or Depression Hotline numbers. Free drink coupons, maybe.
