Will hotels ever be fun for pilots again? I had this thought today on my way home from work.
I had to stop at the grocery store today after work, which meant that I took a different route to get on the highway to head home. On this route, I passed a hotel (I forget which one) and it had a sign advertising some Valentine's Day weekend getaway. Of course, we won't be partaking in this getaway weekend, and I know better than to ask Steve. Why? Why would we? Why would Steve want to be in a hotel room when his real bed is only 20 minutes away.
The sign also got me thinking "will a hotel ever be fun for Steve again?" And the answer is: probably not. At least not until after he stop flying.
I should clarify so that I don't shed Steve in a bad light. Believe me, Steve can have fun in hotels...believe me.
Here is Steve in our hotel room in Lucerne Switzerland...that was actually a fun time. And get your mind out of the gutter, we were traveling with my sister and her bed was actually what I was standing on to take this picture. This hotel had a cool bar and we stayed up talking with some Texans until way too late. Boy, did I pay for that in the morning!
I can't speak for his time at work, but I can speak for the fun times we have been together. Weddings, weekend getaways to visit family, just plain old weekend getaways, traveling, anniversary weekends...
our 5 year anniversary..awww...
Ah, so that is the missing link...I make hotels fun for Steve. Ah! So, I will just tag along with Steve on every trip and then he will only have happy memories at hotels.
