Several years ago, my wife and I took a business / personal trip to California.On our way to the hotel, we passed a sign proclaiming, “SUP Rental & Instruction, 7-Days a Week.”
Not knowing what SUP stood for, we asked our taxi driver. He informed us that SUP was shorthand for Stand-Up Paddling and explained that it was popular up and down the coast.
My plane pushed back from the gate at 6pm this past Thursday night – 4 1/2 hours of sitting on the tarmac it returned to the same gate at 10:30pm.
Nearly 24 hours later I finally made it home.
I then remembered it was Memorial Day Weekend and how quickly I forgot the lesson I learned just a couple of years ago. This post, from three years ago, will hopefully help all of us to keep things in perspective.
