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.
