Got a condo made of stone-ah

Okay, so we’ve established that I am, indeed, mad krazy.
Consider, however, that there are some perks. For example we will be making a side trip to Chicago’s Field Museum to see none other than King Tut himself! Well, his stuff, anyway. For those of you who don’t know, this is the first time any Tut artifacts have been allowed out of Egypt since the 70’s. This exhibit is twice as big as the 1970’s version; many of these items have never been outside of Egypt. It was a huge success on its previous tour; back then people stood in line for up to 8 hours to get in and see it. Thanks to modern technology that won’t be an issue. The tickets are issued with an entry time on them so you just show up at your appointed time and go right in. The Field Museum has sold over 730,000 tickets to this exhibit!
So, you see, there will be some reward for the hours of torture….ah, I mean, “family togetherness”. For an ancient Egypt buff like myself it will be worth the hassle just to see the exhibit. I mean, really, how many times in your life do you get to see something like this in person?
Still, though….would it have killed us to consider flying? Geez.

About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.
