...were in Chicago on Thursday. He was in a motorcade. I was in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the Dan Ryan. He didn't have any problem parking. I did. He was there to raise money. I was there to spend money.
I don't know his itinerary. My first stop was for breakfast--an omelet at Fox and Obel. Then I picked up lots of bread to restock the bread freezer. Yes, we have a bread freezer. Don't ask!
Next stop (with a parking space right in front--woohoo!) Vanille Patisserie
Choose two? Is it possible?
Another look. I ended up choosing two pastries, a half dozen macaroons and a few croissants. After all, I had battled traffic.
Next stop--Whole Foods. At least a dozen of these tangerines hopped into a bag and then into my cart.
Who could resist these "conventional Lyon" artichokes? I thought, as artichokes go, they looked rather unconventional.
I then purchased a large cup of Intelligentsia coffee for the drive home. I zipped out of town on the Dan Ryan waving to those heading into the city with their brake lights showing!!
I never laid eyes on the president.
