You know it’s time to get off the road and head home when:
- It takes you more than 10 minutes to figure out where you are when you wake up.
- You lose the ability to remember your hotel room number.
- You start choosing McDonalds over hotel breakfast buffets.
- You can’t shake that persistent cold/flu/sinus infection because your immune system took a vacation and forgot to tell you.
- You spend an hour before bed re-arranging your suitcase and think of it as “nesting behavior.”
- A can of tuna and a handful of crackers tastes better than anything on the room service menu in your five-star hotel.
- You start snarling at elevators (elevator: “ninth floor!” Me: “Piss off.”)
- You look up at departing airliners with undisguised envy.
- You know the names of the kids of the housekeepers on your floor.
