I suspect you are wondering why I have not put forth brilliant and insightful political commentary and debate analysis yet. Certainly you are all waiting on my opinion, right? Right?
I did not watch the debate. My mind is made up. Nothing either candidate says will change the facts. I read some analysis the next morning. What did this intrepid reporter do in lieu of immersion in hot political melodrama? I chilled in a hotel room in not-so-beautiful Rockford, Illinois. I read, I dozed, I watched some baseball, I channel surfed and dozed a bit more. Then I climbed into my bed and slept some more.
I woke in the dark of night. I don't know why. I checked my phone for the time. The phone was dead. I don't know why, the battery was on about 50% when I set the alarm. I got up, found the plug and plugged in the phone. Then I worried if the alarm would go off or not. I had an appointment for the first thing in the morning and late is not an option in my business world. I finally got up around six. I breakfasted in the Hampton Inn lobby, met with my customer on time and made the long and oh-so-boring drive through central Illinois and Indiana to home. I arrived around supper time. What a life.
