I took a trip this week. It started with SAYMA in the mountains, as described in my previous post. Then I drove (with help from Alice) back to Raleigh, slept one night and drove two hours alone to the other side of North Carolina, the beach where my friend Jimmy was visiting from Baltimore.
Down on the boardwalk of the beach we were treated to an image of a more-psychotic-than-usual Spongebob Squarepants, an anemic Patrick Star, and what appears to be a cross between the cat-in-the-hat and Lord Voldemort. After one day at the beach, I returned to Raleigh and slept one night, waking up at 6:00 AM for a flight to Baltimore.
That’s right, I flew away from my friend Jimmy visiting my home state to his normal place of residence. I went to attend Building Educational Applications and present a poster, but while I was there I sent a Baltimore postcard to Jimmy’s address, stating “Wish you were here!”
