after a stressful late afternoon yesterday of emailing back and forth with karen and immediately developing a mild face herpe, a conclusion was reached as i was driving brian to mai's for a quick dinner before his shift at the sex store began.
apple tours is getting off scott free even though they sent out a letter outlining restrictions with absolutely no mention of select destinations. instead, karen's company is giving me one of their flight vouchers. as a result, i'll be leaving a day earlier so darren and i now have five glorious nights in the big city. better yet... the $50-70 i thought i would have to pay to cover the deficiencies for my initial voucher have become $0. i pay nothing. which might make me feel less guilty when i inevitably make my way to moo shoes to buy a slightly overpriced bag made out of car seat vinyl.
