Good Morning, Oppo (Leaving NYC Edition)

This will be my chariot today. It is not a Delta Air Lines 737.

I’ve been in NYC for the last few days with my dad and brother. My dad, who will be 80 next year, was scheduled to go home on the train from Penn Station to Norfolk (VA), but he had a wicked back spasm and is unable to travel alone. So, instead of flying home to Austin, I am accompanying him on the train. I’ll fly back to Austin Tuesday morning.


I think business class on the train has wifi and power plug ins, so I’m hoping to get some work done during the 9.5 hour train ride. I haven’t ridden on a train in ages, and while this might be a bit of an adventure, I’d much rather be flying home. But, as Vonnegut said, “So it goes.”
