I wore my conference lanyard around my parents house today. One swipe of the refrigerator for a coke, 2 swipes for a sandwich. I asked my Mom to make the house freezing cold, except at night when it will be sticky hot and I'll sleep on the hard floor with a beach towel blanket. I made sure I sat in uncomfortable chairs for at least three hours and tried to meet strangers in the parking lot of the car rental return place. I guess I miss Southampton.
