On the lighter side-Travel-Chicago, Illinois-3
After driving through the night, I decided I had to take a quick nap so we stopped at a service area to fill up the tank, get coffee and switch seats. After drinking my coffee, I took a nap for a hour, not the greatest nap if you have ever slept in the car seat for an hour or so, but I had too otherwise I would not have been functional enough to drive all the way to Illinois. When we hit the Chicago area, the traffic became a little busy and since we reached the city way before our check time like maybe around 12.30 P.M. (Chicago 11.30 P.M-central time), we called in the hotel to find out if we can have an early check in. After reaching the hotel in a nice suburb of Chicago called Bloomingdale, my wife went inside to find out if we were lucky enough to have an early check in and with only one room available we were lucky to get in. So after driving all the way to our destination, we found out that we had not brought my suit that I had eagerly bought was left back in New Jersey and now we had to buy another suit and shirt and a tie. Since I was too tired to go shopping right away, I took a nap and went to a nearby Macys® store before our expected departure for a home dinner at about 6.00 P.M. It was a nice mall and I started looking and putting the suits on as the shirt and tie were easy to pick up. After going through three suits I decided to get one which fitted me well.
