Well Iâ€™m literally headed to the shower then the airport. Yes, those that know me often know what I do before a morning flightâ€”not sleep the night before for many reasons.
One reason is to get as many emails that I can answered, seems Iâ€™m always behind. The other reason, I have this fear I will not wake-up in time for my flight, so by staying up, well Iâ€™m up! Yeah, I know, sounds silly right? Well it probably is, but one thing for certain, I have yet to miss a flight (grin), besides, Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll get some sleep in that lovely coach seat all the way to Europeâ€”the biggest leg is 8-plus hours and I know my IPOD battery wonâ€™t last that long.
Seriously, call it my U.S. Army training, but sleep is something I can sacrifice for the sake of photographyâ€”just donâ€™t ask me if Iâ€™ll give up booze, as I only do that on the all-nighters since I have to drive with no sleep already. I know what youâ€™re thinking, youâ€™re probably saying, â€œMan, youâ€™re nuts and now you want to get on the road in your sleepless state.â€ My answer is simple, Iâ€™ll be driving more sane than most folks here where I live, besides, Iâ€™ve got insurance.
Yeah, no insurance can stop the inconvenience associated with any repairsâ€”I know that first-hand, my wife, who had all the sleep in the world yesterday, woke-up to take the kids to their first-day in school and she forget that garage door was not completely openedâ€”so $431 later, the door is now fixed. Well time to run, theyâ€™re not going to hold any planes for me today, besides, that flying-bed awaits me, thanks, rg sends!
