I've Fooled Them Again!

I had a pretty good trip to Dallas. Work-wise it was productive, and we completed the work we needed to get done ahead of schedule. The hotel was comfortable, and we went to the Cheescake Factory for dinner (Navajo sandwich, where have you been all my life?).

Especially cool, since Bob's Hogs and Weiner Pigs is a potential major client for the company we were meeting with, they wooed us. I haven't been on this side of the wooing before. I spent Monday evening with various account executives in their luxury suite at the Mavericks/Lakers game. I could really get into sports if a luxury suite was included.

Out of nowhere during the game, my boss turned to me and asked if I felt ready to take over a Regional Sales Manager position. Since a Regional Sales Manager position does not currently exist within Bob's Hogs, it was a bit out of left field. Apparently, I'm being groomed. All right. If you want to pay me more money just to continue doing the same thing over a larger area (and send me to San Fran every so often)--Sure! I'll take it.

The last part of my trip wasn't so great. The airport wait stretched to almost five hours after missing the earlier flight out. I blamed my upset stomach on turbulence, but after arriving home and diving for the bathroom it became official--I was sick. Really sick. The throwing up began at 10 PM. Fortunately it was limited to one night. Two days of lying on the couch immobile allowed my stomach to keep down two jello cups and one english muffin.

Today has been better—half of a sandwich! I can’t tell if I’m feeling faint from the slight fever or the lack any real food in almost three days.

So, life in short currently—travel, travel, work, work, sick, sick, sick—somewhat better today. Tomorrow I get my first full weekend since November.

So all I have to do is get us luxury suites to the Seahawks, Mariners and Sonics and you're in?

I'll work on that.
