Off to chicago today, to visit family. "How nice", I think, "that Chicago is only a 2-hour-ish flight away, instead of the long haul to the west coast or europe or something". Except then I remember it's 1.5 hours train to JFK, plus 1.5 hours in baggage drop and security lines, plus then 2 hours flight surrounded on three sides by adjacent children kicking my seat and/or screaming and/or throwing heavy water bottles at the floor and at me, plus bonus 0.5 hour taxiing around ORD waiting for our gate to be empty, plus 0.5 hour waiting for luggage, plus 1 hour train to hotel, plus 1 hour train to Evanston. oof.
