Here's something that's never happened to me before

I managed to forget to pack socks and underwear for a week-long trip to Cleveland. Sigh...And, of course, being an emperor-sized gentleman, I can't just run out to Wal-Mart and grab a few off of the shelf. So, guess what I'm doing tomorrow night?

Remember the scene from "Rain Man," where they pick Raymond up and tell him that they're bringing him back to the home he was living in, and tell him that he going to get to wear his underwear from K-Mart? Remember what he said? "K Mart sucks." Incidentally, the hotel to which Tom Cruise brings him in that movie is the Vernon Manor in beautiful Cincinnati, Ohio, where I have stayed on many occasions and which, to my mind, is one of the truly unique places on earth. I wonder if Pat's still working the bar? And if the older gentleman who waited on me in the restaurant is still there? Probably not--I haven't stayed there in over fifteen years.
