The One With Bacon

Date : 12/31/23

Location : Jacksonville, FL

Although the Roomette’s bed was comfy — likely the best mattress I’ll encounter for several months, I didn’t sleep much last night.  Perhaps it was night-before-an-early-morning-flight nerves or too much coffee earlier in the day.

So, as I lay in the top bunk looking out the narrow, body length-long window, I watched the stars move left-to-right along the window … and eventually out of sight.  Orion was the prominent visible constellation.  Really hope it goes supernova in my lifetime.  That’d be cool.

At some point, I dozed off and later awoke as we coasted into the Jacksonville, FL Amtrak station.

Not wanting to miss my complementary breakfast 🥞🍳🥓, I jumped spritely from the top bunk.  My knees protested.  They’ll want to discuss this egregious insult later.  Oy.

Breakfast is served.

      This is about the time I ask myself, “What was I thinking?!“. 🤔
