Most Prudent Investment Thus Far

This is me on the first day of our trip to South Asia:

. . .Wearing the outfit that I bought at a yard sale the week before.

For $1.50.

From Stewart Sink's wife; (the 2009 British Open winner).

These are a few of my co-workers:

. . . Mocking me.

. . . Asking if I was going to the Mission Field or Milan.

This is me on our 14-hour flight from Chicago to Abu Dhabi:

Why do I have such a smirk, you may ask.

In the words of the airline representative, "The lady in the white jacket looks very classy. I would like to upgrade as many people in your group as possible to first class."

This is what knowing that a $1.50 investment turned a $45,000.00 profit. ($9000 per person to upgrade from economy to business x 5 people.)

Just so you know, dearly loved mockers, I laughed about that all the way across the world.

. . . From my comfortable, ridiculously expensive airplane bed.
