There are those who say that the city I visited over the weekend toddles. While I am loathe to disparage places beloved of my friends, I will say that I came home unconvinced of any toddling. I will also say that Ilse had a harder time than usual in assisting me with anger management during key parts of the journey.
I did get to see a futbol game in Soldier Field, which is a pretty cool edifice. And the game ended with a not-unfavorable result for my side.
I can also say with great assurance that U-boats are way cool. Please do me the favor of making some small effort to act surprised. There, that wasn't so hard, was it?
Sadly, the Museum of Science and Industry does not sell actual Kriegsmarine caps in the museum shop devoted to its captured U-boat, the U-505. That? Would've made it all seem worthwhile.
I also report that Sparkles, an occasional denizen of the comments section of this space, is a damned fine human being and I am grateful for the opportunity to have spent time with her. She funny, the Sparkles.
See? Good things about the city that some of you love. Good beef, a fine museum, an outstanding stadium, difficult company to top. Not a word about temperature, moisture, air movement, cab drivers, or the most uncompelling art museum I have ever experienced. Not even a rant, huh?
I know. I'm a disappointment to you all.
