Thursday's Dump & Chase: A Sick Day

New, comments

Sorry for missing out on Tuesday. I ended up hurling some of a 30% digested chicken fajita and a glass of sangria into a Starbucks bathroom. And thanks to the obnoxious jazz fusion this location was playing, no one heard any audible sounds of it. So I calmly walked back to my table, finished my article, and returned to my room to prepare for round two.
Also for you Braves fans, I made it from Marietta to Nashville in 3.25 hours with traffic. So you have that to look forward to next year.
