That makes it a business expense, right?

As you may have noticed from the sudden and shocking lack of posts from me on this weekend, the Red Hot Family took advantage of fall break at the elementary school to make a family trip to Cancún México. We even got some education in to the event with a day-trip to Chichen Itza to marvel at the ruins in between getting sunburned on the beach.

On Friday, the second day in Mexico, we donned slightly less beachworthy attire and went to catch the bus to downtown to do some shopping. As we stood waiting for someone to appear at the money-changing counter, an older gentleman who is checking out of the hotel strikes up a conversation.

“I noticed your Reds shirt. Are you from Cincinnati?” asks the friendly, familiar man.

“Indianapolis,” I tell him.

“Oh, so Reds fans are you? I cover the Reds for the Dayton Daily News,” he responds.

That’s right: we ran into Hal McCoy and his wife in the lobby of the Westin Resort and Spa in Cancún, Mexico. Small world.

    I thought so too! The poor guy had only gotten rainy days while he was down there. If he’d stayed one more day, the sun actually came out.
