The Internet is for…

I’m away on a business trip right now.  As I was leaving this morning, Birmingham was helping me clean up so he could drive me to the train.  I turned off my computer and closed it and left it on the desk.

“Aren’t you going to take your laptop?”

“Naw, I have a work one that I might use, if they brought it for me.”

“Are you going to go five whole days without the internet?”

“I’ll find access somewhere, maybe the hotel lobby.”

(note – I’m using a work laptop in my room.)

“But you can’t do that!”

“Sure I can.  I just need to check email and maybe blog real quick.”

“But what about the porn?  You can’t look at porn in the hotel lobby. Please think of the porn!”

But friends, I’ve found my version of porn.  It’s called “the television in my hotel room that is playing a marathon of Intervention.”  I love watching this show, mainly for the job hunting aspect.  These people are spending hundreds of dollars a week on their addictions.  What do they do to get this money?  Because I could use $800 a week!  However, more often than not, the money comes from being a hooker, and I’m not into that career path, because hookers don’t get to go on business trips to nice hotels with cable and internet access.

  1. You could look at porn in the hotel lobby. Then if someone came around you could just yell DAMN POP UPS!

  2. Well, at least we know what Birmingham’s priorities are.

    I have no idea what my comment means, but it feels appropriate.

  3. Actually, I bet the high-end hookers get to travel and stay in some pretty swanky hotels. You know, as long as they snag Richard Gere as a client.

  4. What if their addiction IS hooking? Do they have to hook to support their hooking habit? Also, is “hook” OK to use as a verb in this context?
