Having a little trouble with the interweb here in London. I’ll be back in a jiff! In the meantime the above photo pretty much sums it up!
It wasn’t my intention to post so soon, but imagine my bleary eyes when I saw ex-49er great Ronnie “cut off my pinky” Lott in airport security at 4:15am and managed to stalk him all the way to Starbucks (venti coffee, btw). All his toiletries in a one quart bag – just like us! Taking his shoes up the escalator to put on away from the fray – just like us! Having attended the ’84 Super Bowl I just had to shake his digit-less hand! I can almost forgive him for going to USC!
It’s my last day on American soil for a while and I would be lying if I didn’t say it’s producing a bit of anxiety, not unlike sweaty Nic in this pic! It’s just a long time to be away and a lot to pack for weather that’s going to veer from the 80s to the 50s in a matter of a few weeks. Do I pack light or do I bring creature comforts? And then there’s that part about the language(s) I don’t speak. 30+ days in lands where I won’t be able to communicate! Someone asked me if I was going to find myself and I replied, “Actually, I think I’m gonna get a little lost!”
