I recently described business travel as “glamorous.”
That was the best adjective I could think of after eating peanuts and drinking stale coffee on a 6 a.m. flight to New Orleans. (That was the most sarcasm-inducing “breakfast” I had ever eaten.)
I was in the Big Easy working on an out-of-the-box social media campaign for Tulane Athletics.
The only reason I’m sharing this boring behind-the-scenes information: I think it’s important that you know and understand why I abandoned my family for an entire week.
Why I abandoned my wife.
Why I abandoned my 19-month-old son.
Why I abandoned my dog.
FOR EIGHT DAYS!
I really thought I was a big boy. I thought I could handle it.
I was standing on the doormat to hell, screaming: “Excuse me! I have a reservation for one!” I was miserable. I missed them like CRAZY, and each and every day I missed them that much more.
Thank goodness my understanding and VERY cool wife kept me sane. She sent me two to three photos a day of my “Little Man,” and every time it made me smile.I thought I share some of my favorites:
My boy loves ANYTHING with a steering wheel.
When I’m gone for long periods of time,
Crash starts interviewing new daddies.
Tell my son: “Show me your eyes”
and this is what you get.
An instant classic!
When I take him on an airplane…he’s a little more hyper than this.
