So I Went to Amsterdam for the Night
Written by: Speculator

Two Thursday's ago I was into my 6th hour of an indefinite delay at ORD and into my second bottle of super shitty wine at the "Chili's Too" in Terminal U Concourse 37, where, I proudly admit, I waited in line for 48 minutes to patronize.

So, the story goes something like this: I was pissed and hated my job. Then it suddenly occurred to me that the impending weekend was a 3-day bonanza, the February Labor Day, if you will (Why this had not happened on me sooner is admittedly odd). So, I booked a roundtrip ticket and one night hotel at the Renaissance Hotel Amsterdam for materially under $1K (it was 3X this to have 2 nights). A Thu evening European booking for a Sat departure... not bad.

Below is my effort to put pen to paper following my daily recommended dose of vegetables in AMS. Nothing extraordinary, nothing necessarily of merit, just a whole bunch of...

Note: nothing was doctored - this is how it sat on my screen when I finally slept like I was guilty.

I guess I am sobering up now – I now know that I need to remain certain that I am not going to die central Amsterdam

I am an analyst

That is the only way I just got through that [that on second read noted as a classic pronoun this is going to read horribly ]

It wanted to delete the entirty of the last assemb =ly of words

I cannot believe how bad it just got

Why didnt jesus actually write anything down himself?

lI still feel raw

The thought would come, but there was no allocation of capacity to the walk

Im done with it – why would I ever want to go back there again – ever – you lost all ability to assume that the summary of your action swould produce a predicted net result, i.e. you deferred it – you couldn’t handle it saved locally 1904

I never want to see that again –

i need

I remember beign frightened for my life – I did not know htat I could guarantee the next several minutes wouldn’t pass by without my complete loss of control –

I regcognize that I have to get this completely understood…thjis being the just had experience - I recognized I had fucked up – I bit off far (past any estimate) more than I could chew

And i
