Surprise Chicago Trip

So I'm making an unexpected trip to Chicago. My Grandmother fell ill there while on a trip, and I'm heading there to provide some additional family support.

Her medical case remained a mystery to doctors for some time, and the whole experience played out like an episode of House. We are all hoping for the standard happy ending.



  1. Ah, the beauty of two one-way tickets earned you the big "S." If one were a conspiracy theorist, one might think that that was just one more way I tried to sabotage your trip... compact car, queen size bed, back of the plane... At least I arranged for a cab and didn't make you walk to the airport at 5:15 am. Gosh I'm a nice person.

    Sorry to hear about your Grandma's situation. My thoughts and prayers go out to her. I *think* you know that I live in Chicago. Let me know if you need anything.
    PS Unless our meeting would cause a rift in the space-time continuim. In which case, I live in Toronto, sorry.

  3. Hey Ben -

    Thanks so much for the offer. My trip (as you can tell from the blog) was mostly uneventful.

    If you ever make it to DC, the same offer is open to you.

    Hey, us Bens have to stick together...
