Great and Not So Great


My ΑΧΩ reunion was this weekend.  

It was great to see my freshman and junior year roommate, her husband, and sweet children.

It was great getting upgraded to the honeymoon suite at the inn in Charleston.

It was not so great that the room was directly above the lobby.

It was great seeing wonderful friends from long ago!

It was not so great when we thought someone moved our bed into the nearest club at 2:00am.

It was not so great listening to loud music and drunken voices just below our bed for two hours straight.

It was not so great having to call the front desk two times.

It was great to finally fall back asleep at 4:30am.

It was REALLY great to have the room refunded and our parking garage charge waived.

    Ugh. I’m glad it was refunded. Bummer that some people haven’t grown up.

    Sweet deal! Here are a couple more:
    It was great catching up with you in person instead of via blogger or FB.
    It was not great that it was such a smoky bar toward the end.

    Wow! It’s great that the hotel accepted responsibility and refunded your room! Why in the world were people partying in the lobby?!?
