Surf and Turf

east coast mark just checked in here at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. I have meetings until Sunday, followed by a few vacation days to play some golf and tennis. 76 degrees and sunny when I got to the resort. The pool is luke, and the mini bar is cold.

Question: Why can't the flight attendant just give me the whole can of pop? As much as I appreciate that little dixie cup of pepsi, I can't help but wonder if a second swallow would be as good as the first. Perhaps we'll never know.

I brought 6 ties on this trip. Apparently I've got a nickname brewing in the company as, "The Suit Guy". It's a bit of a misnomer - as I don't really wear a suit everyday, but I do wear a shirt and tie everyday. They know me by first name at Brooks Brothers....I may have a problem....but that's neither here nor there. Most of my colleagues dress business casual or less. However, I feel it's better to be known as 'the suit guy' than 'the slob guy' or 'the fat guy' or 'the pervert guy'.

A quote I once read applies: "You have business to do, so dress like you mean business."

I'm off to find the cabana boy to bring me a banana daiquiri.
