Ladies & Gentlemen,
I hope I find all well. I have been enjoying all the Windy City has to offer the last three nights as I am slowly but surely falling for another great American city. The distinct accents are being noticed on both sides of the conversation. A blonde asked everyone at the table where they were from, two replied Indy and she cut me off before I could answer. "You are from the South" so I told her, "I am a blazing yankee!" A blatant lie but she was blonde.
A few observations......
-the buildings go on forever, a commercial brokers dream. It is like a canyon of concrete going on forever.
-people are much friendlier than expected, not quite the South though
-I am not a big fan of a ten minute lunch and not leaving the 28th floor from before 8 til after 6
-getting your RE license in other states is a joke...45 hours?!?
-no college football talk, only Da Bears!! and some think Rex Grossman is the next Brett Favre, ie: "their stats throught the first three years are identical"...seriously??
-cabs are sooooooo cheap and sooooooooooo worth it
-had a great steak tonight(bone in filet w/ broccoli) and the last time I had a truly great meal was Memphis...Wild Fire Grill and the had a signature drink, the Wildfire Manhattan with Basil small batch bourbon, terrific...actually handed the Bramble its butt
Nation & Carl, please post over this rambling space filler. All, have a great week and we shall see you soon!
