Sweet Home Alabama
By melinchina on Nov 21, 2007
I was at Sun's Menlo Park headquarters last week for a Globalization Leadership Meeting, and now I'm working from my parents' house in my hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. My parents have a phone line of course and also an Internet connection, and that plus my laptop is all I need to set up my virtual office in their dining room.
It's been a long time since I spent time here in Alabama and I had forgotten how gracious and kind Southerners are. Yesterday I was talking to one of my parents' neighbors and in the middle of our conversation his cell phone rang. It was his wife and he told her, "I was just chatting with Marie's daughter from China. She's beautiful."
God it's good to be back home.
