On Friday (September 25) morning, my friend C dropped me off at the Houston/Hobby airport bright and early. I had to fly through JFK to get to Chicago – what a pain! Oh well. The flights were uneventful, and I made full use of the unlimited free snacks for breakfast and lunch. This worked especially well since my appetite wasn’t totally back yet. I landed in ORD at about 3:30, and my friend S picked me up and took me back to his and Elizabeth‘s place. We just relaxed – watched tv, played on the ‘net, and chatted until E got home. Their adorable doggy got home not long after, so we decided to just get take out for dinner from Portillo’s. Portillo’s is known for its hot dogs and chocolate cake shake. I didn’t get a hot dog since I MUST put ketchup on a hot dog and it’s basically illegal to put ketchup on a hot dog in Chicago. I did, however, indulge in the chocolate cake shake, and YUM! E had a particularly busy week, so we just had a good time catching up with each other and some bad tv.
