Coming home after a trip is always weird. It feels like you cheated at life. It’s not normal to wake up in one place and fall asleep on the other side of the planet. You wake up in a hotel room a thousand miles away from home, go on a plane for a few hours, and end up sleeping in your own bed under your own roof at night. You feel tired, groggy, and out of it, but you’re home so you can’t complain. Coming home after a trip is a relatively new thing. Traveling used to take a long time. It took months to traverse the Oregon Trail. Now you can travel from San Francisco to Paris in under twelve hours. It feels good to come home, but you’re too lazy to unpack so just wait until its time to go on your next trip or it is laundry day. Delay the inevitable for as long as you can. Just make sure you have clean underwear.
