Mom: "Well, why don't you go?"
Me: "Um, because it's next weekend."
Technically, she's got a point. I could get a flight. I think I can still get day passes. It looks like the stuff I'd be interested in is taking place on Saturday and Sunday so I wouldn't have to get in until Friday. But, it would probably be Hell to get a hotel room at this point. Am I insane to even be contemplating this?
