My friend Sandy went to Chicago for meetings this week and I asked her (via FaceBook, of course) if she'd get me a Chicago Dog and ship it to me. This is what she sent me instead.
It arrived just minutes ago. I watched it on one monitor while Skype-ing with her (now home in Dallas) on the other monitor from my office in Orlando. I laughed out loud. More than once.
I really do hate being separated from friends and family -- time and space can be rather annoying limitations on our human lives -- but technology is making it more possible to connect. Love that.
