This is part of the weekly Blogging Challenge over at Long and Short Reviews. If you'd like to participate, you can find the prompts here. They also put up a post every Wednesday where you go and link your response -- and see everyone else's. Check out their homepage to find it.
The challenge for this week is "the last place I traveled to, and why."
The answer, of course, is "the grocery store and bacon."
But of course when these prompts were put together there wasn't a pandemic on, or at least it wasn't on anybody's radar yet. Back in those golden times, buying groceries was just something you did; it wasn't a terrifying quest fraught with peril, requiring meticulous and thorough preparations. So I suspect that isn't really the sort of answer we were looking for, here.
So... the last place I traveled to that required, you know, actually leaving town was Cleveland, Ohio. I went there for a software conference, and it was... fun, I guess, in its way. It was certainly educational; there were training sessions as well as people hoping to sell you on new products. I am oh-so-very-much-not an extrovert, so I ducked out of a lot of the social activities and finished both Gideon The Ninth and The City In The Middle Of The Night — which I consider time well spent, frankly. And I did get to walk around downtown Cleveland and see the Museum of Rock'n'Roll, so there's that.
