I get to do cool things. I get to ride fire engines for a living. My high school prom was held in a German castle. I've been to Capitol Hill and talked to politicians. It's not that I'm a cool person; I'm just cool by proxy. I happen to be in places where cool people … Continue reading Can you believe it!?!?!?

I get off the plane in Tulsa Ok, ready for a weekend at a conference. The flight sent smooth from leaving Washington, DC, changing flights in Chicago, and landing in Tulsa.
