Home Stretch –

Sitting in a hotel in Arkansas – by tomorrow evening we will be home. Although honestly, home is a relative term.

How exciting it is, that every mile we drive the landscape begins to look more and more familiar. The low flat plans gradually climb into rolling hills, and trees begin to reconquer the scene.
It is funny how many people are in Charlotte right now, we are not. In the breakfast room every morning the news displays beautiful views of the Charlotte skyline. Forget some important convention, are they trying to make me homesick?

Older sister has the whole week off because of the democratic convention.
Whatever your political ideology, there are definitely perks to hosting it in Charlotte.
And when we get home, me and older sister are heading downtown for a good round of “spot the famous person.” Here’s the lineup-

Media specialist/Journalist/secret service: 1 point
Famous congressman or senator: 2 points
Celebrity, first lady, or otherwise famous munchkin: 3 points
President: 10 points.

The Plan: Reserve a table for two at a shmancy restuarant. We’ll probably be awkward and
order tea, or split some dessert. Come one, spotting the president is cool, but it ain’t worth
breaking the bank.

Results to come.

  1. haha love.

    oh & random.
    is this blog public?
    because if it is, i'm totally telling everyone on my blog to come read this.
    because it's the best.
    if that is quite alright with you my dear.


  2. I love the word “munchkin” and putting it in the phrase “famous muchkin” is even better. Makes my day!
    I also love the idea of a “shmancy restuarant”. That will make my day one day in the future. Perhaps we shall have a tea date? What do you say to that my jolly good friend? (pinky extended while smartly sipping out of a rediciously bedazzled china tea cup)


  3. Some people I work with were at the convention. I they would've gotten a lot of points, but I don't think they interviewed the president. Plus whenever they saw their reflection, they would've gotten a point because they are journalists.
