Nashville Morning

October 2, 2007 15:58

Spending a week in Nashville alone gave me plenty of time for much needed solitude and internal debate. Between the songwriting, camping out at Borders, and perusing the Hillsboro shops, my time was spent considering and taking in the following:

First, why in 2007, do some "nameless" places of business still believe in providing a good 'ole bar of soap in the men's room? In an age of SARS and The Bird Flu, I'm left wondering what old guys knuckle hair that is seemingly fixed to the DIAL logo. Nice!

Second, somethings are just beautiful to wake up to...for instance, this morning my choices we the last 45 minutes of the greatest cinematic masterpiece of my time (of course after Honey I Blew Up The Kids). What was it? Cool Runnings of course! My other option was watching Michael Knight (the Hoff) laso a bad guy on Knight Rider. Oh the choices!

And finally, what to do for breakfast...wheat thins and coffee like the last 2 days or a smorgasboard of delight at the Pancake Pantry? Tough one - i'm out - and will soon be regretting my decision to engorge myself at the Pantry.

Until next time, take it easy!
