A thought just occurred to me. Well, it actually occurred to me before, but it really hit me hard this time.
This is my first ever business trip. I’m not a nameless drone at such-and-such company anymore. I’m someone that people are trying to get in touch with, because I can do something for them. I’m being sent somewhere on a plane at the expense of the company I work for. I’ve only been on a plane twice, once to fly out to Vancouver for my mom’s wedding, and once to fly back from Vancouver from my mom’s wedding. That was in 1999. I’m going on a business trip, and I have a real job. How freakin weird is that????
