DD spends most of his life on planes at the moment.
He arrived home from Korea and Japan on Friday then flew out to China last night.
I don’t know how he does it, although it’s a respite from the other thing he spends most of his life doing – being on teleconference calls.
I don’t know how he does that either.
Last week one of his days started with a meeting at 7am and continued relentlessly until 9.30pm, then he was up at 5am the next morning to catch another flight.
I would hate all the business travelling and listening and talking and schmoozing.
I go stir-crazy on planes and talking on the phone is my idea of hell.
I sounded like a total loony when I was telling the cabbie on my way home from Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards last night why I drive to ranks to catch cabs rather than call them to my house.
I’m fairly certain it’s because calling a cab to my house would involve talking on the phone … Yes, I know that’s ridiculous.
Anyways, Australia’s Wine List of the Year Awards was very fabulous and Jonah’s won the top award. I felt quite sentimental about the win, since I took DD there for dinner once when I was a travel writer and introduced him to delicious Charles Melton Rose of Virginia Rose as we watched the sunset over the ocean.
He loved it when I was a travel writer.
We had the nicest night at Jonah’s, it was very luxe and romantic … and free.
DD will land in Hong Kong (briefly) any minute now and text to let me know he’s OK. I miss him already – he’s an excellent hugger, life isn’t quite the same without his hugs.
I don’t know how he stays so sane and calm in the relentless whirl that is his life.
Here are some snaps from yesterday, with explanatory captions:
