this doesn't happen everyday

I arrived in Chicago this afternoon.
I am sitting right now in the living room of someone I've never met.
And I am alone.

The house is comfortable, I walked the dog, my new best friend Izzy, earlier along a beautiful riverside path and following threats of tornadoes it's turned out to be a beautiful night.

It's surreal. I can count the times I have spent the night alone, in 21 years of marriage, on one hand.

So here I am... I don't know anyone, I have no car and I'm alone.
What would you do?

First, I'd take a nap, then I'd check out the fridge, I'd like to think that I'd read something beneficial like the Bible or a personal development book, but I'd probably turn on the tv - especially if they had cable, since I don't .. but that's just me.

There's always TV. I've watched a marathon of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmare or Mythbuster by myself (loser I know...).

Good Izzy...good Izzy...Good dog!!!!
