I want to get on a plane. I want to pack a large bag. I want to open my suitcase and obsess about what goes in it. What will I wear and what shoes will I need? Will it be cold? Should I layer?

I woke up at 5:30 am, ran around in a complete haze of exhaustion trying to get ready in 20 minutes, grabbed my chef’s uniform and left. I was so bleary eyed that I took Jeff’s keys by mistake.
