As if I haven’t belabored the point already, I’ll be heading to Colombia one week from today (Tuesday, November 18th) for my now annual Thanksgiving holiday pilgrimage to South America where I can truly celebrate the meaning of Thanksgiving, which is, um, well I’ll get back to you.
As I’m typing I’m starting to think of things I need to do before I go:
1) Stop being sick. Why do I come down with a cold every 3 months in New York? Why do cold germs in NYC seem to acquire superhuman powers and why do I succumb to their evil ways?
2) Buy a travel alarm clock. I’ve gone through two in the past year alone. The first lasted a good two days before crapping out. The second weighed more than most standard barbells and went off at random times throughout the day — and of course inevitably every time I was boarding a plane.
3) Open a Capital One bank account. Did you know they don’t charge fees for ATM withdrawals in other countries? Now if I could only convince them to pay me a fee every time I used an ATM I could probably finance this entire trip.
