Street Smart

It's time to go home. It's time to take a break from all of this merriment. It's just time.

You know you've been away too long when you take a cab to dinner.... and he lets you off ONE BLOCK AWAY from where you started. That all happened while I was futzing with my seatbelt.

No wonder the cab driver laughed at me. No wonder he questioned the tip I gave him. No wonder he had that bemused look on his face. But I didn't quite know what had happened until after dinner when I tried to hail a cab to come back.

Rick, Elizabeth and I walked half a block to the main street to catch the cab. We stood there for a moment when I happened to look up at all of the tall buildings. And saw ours. Literally one block away. Just across a street.

We walked back. Even Rick could walk that far.

Heck, even I could walk that far.
