“Friend” - it’s been real. Real…entertaining. Inconvenient. Important. Interesting. And sometimes flat out embarrassing. But I’m sorry to say, our time has come. No more buddy system for you and me as I continue to embark on my traveling adventures. The time has come for us to part.
And I could not be more excited.
With my short term goal met and about five months to go, there is only one more road trip you will accompany me on. No more tiny airport bathrooms. No more pounding on the airplane door from needy passengers wondering exactly the two of us are doing in there. No more pat downs, deep exploration of your parts and suspicion you may be part of a terrorist plot. Just you, me, and the open road. And plenty of quality time behind my locked office door of course.
I can’t say I’m going to miss you tagging along by any means. But I do appreciate you. Thank you for helping me nourish my child and give back in one of the last ways a working Mom feels like she can. You were worth every penny.
Thank you, buddy.
