While in a hotel in Connecticut

An HBO movie with John Cusack is on the flat-screen TV.

The hotel is in a corporate office park. Snow, sleet, company car. No idea where I am.

I hole up with a big bag of kettle corn bought at the front desk for five bucks.

Tomorrow, a meeting with folks in the business. Plans to make, questions to ask, handouts, polite banter, business cards.

Tonight, I crawl into the pillow-top, king-sized bed. 

Slumber party for  one
