In which he wanted lunch


It’s funny (well I think it’s funny and very frankly I’m the only one that matters because I’m writing this for fun) that when you travel you have so much stuff to blog about but no time to actually write a post.  When you get around to writing the post than you can’t remember what you’ve done because your days have been so full.


Well, perhaps its not that funny but it is annoying don’t ya think?  I made a list of all the things I wanted to talk about except I’m typing this up on my iPad in my hotel room and the list is ALSO on my iPad so I can’t access it while writing the post.  See all the obstacles that are in my way to recounting my west coat visit?


Well, let’s begin at the beginning shall we?


I made sure that we didn’t have a really early flight to the west coast for two reasons.  One is that Keely would be working so there was no compelling reason to get up early to catch a plane and the second was that it’s Daniels spring break so I thought he could sleep in a bit.  Our flight was at 11:45 and we’d be flying through Dallas and then on to LA.  Knowing Daniel needs a steady source of food (seriously, he’s ridiculous) I bought us sandwiches to eat on the plane.


Around 1:00 we ate our lunch and we landed in Dallas around 3 (EST that is). Then we had the following conversation:


Daniel:  are we going to get lunch?

Me:  we had lunch

Daniel: no we didn’t

Me: what do you think that sandwich was?

Daniel: a snack

Me: didn’t you have breakfast before we left?

Daniel: not a big one

Me: why not?

Daniel: you didn’t have the right kind of cereal

Me: did you tell me the “right kind of cereal to buy?”

Daniel: no, but what about lunch?

Me: I’ll buy you another lunch. I would hate for you to perish in the DFW airport

So I suppose that one of the rules of traveling with Daniel is a steady food supply.


We arrived at LAX and went down to retrieve our luggage and it appeared right away (which is a miracle) and then went out the door and right in front of us was the HERTZ bus which was a bigger miracle than the birth of Jesus.


I have never gotten a rental bus that fast at LAX!!! We got to Hertz and I had rented a Mustang (it was on sale) and guess what???? It was a little red convertible Mustang. I’ve never actually driven a convertible before but hell yeah we put the top down and drive to our hotel.


By the way, I fucking froze but it was worth it except by the end of the drive my hair looked liked Bob Marley because curls and convertibles don’t mix.  However, it was fun.


We had dinner at a restaurant nearby called Katana which had some of the best Japanese food I’ve ever had.  I had these little courses called Robata and they were incredible.


Oh, and after the myriad of medical issues it was great seeing and hugging Keely.


So, that was day one.  Hope you enjoyed the recap.  If not then why are you even reading this blog???
