Thanksgiving

We had Thanksgiving at my sister's house. A big mash-up of family members from her side of the family and her husband's. Wonderful time.

When I got back to the hotel, I found out that an order I'd placed on amazon for things that were hard to get in China was declined. Turns out the credit card company was being extra-cautious during the holiday season, and wanted some confirmation that it was actually me making the purchase.

After confirming to the credit card associate that I was me (?):

  • Where are you out of?
  • India, sir.
  • I know, but where? Not Mumbai by any chace?
  • Yes, Bombay.

We talked awhile about what was happening. At the end of the conversation, I told him that my heart went out to the folks there.

And, indeed it does.

Comments:

Wow, can you imagine? Your city's under siege and you're working. That must have been a tough time for him, and I bet it made him feel better that you recognized that.
