A crazy day -- One client meeting that went for three and a half hours followed immediately by another client meeting that lasted three hours. Both were excellent meetings -- fun, even, but that kind of pace can wear on you.
A work week right before I'm leaving town is often crammed full of pressure and anxiety.. Same in the week right after I get back.
Referring to my trip next week, my co-worker Jeff to me over happy-hour martinis: "Why do you like traveling down South?" Me: "Two reasons: 1) the food; and 2) being there makes me feel so intelligent!"
(It was the gin talking).
