DD and I are on our mainland trip....we have been "sharing" the CDC cuff, and joking about its powers...(eg how our luggage was first off the plane, and so on) (Now, I had planned on leaving it to her in my will, but it looks so dang great on her (14) that I just love to see it. She loves how it makes her feel like she can kick a$$, too!) So she wore it on the plane from HNL to Sacramento. The red eye. I had booked our hotel in Sacramento for the night before our arrival, to be sure I could get in and shower, etc, and I had called several times, including from the airport in HNL to remind them I would be arriving at 6AM and to be sure they held my room for me. After driving from SFO in the wee hours, I arrived at my hotel in Sacramento and was told there was no room for me.... They had NOT held it!!! ARGH I calmly took our my comfirmations, explained how many times I had called and who I had spoken to --all to be certain we would have our room, and so on.... I was beginning to feel like this and was so tired and ready for a shower, and NOT GETTING ANYWHERE, as the hotel is booked solid... Then, I hear a CLINK on the counter, and look to my left, to see that DD has taken off the CDC! I quietly slipped it on, calmly repeated my circumstances and my request... .....So, to make a long story I am sitting here writing you from the executive floor, in my lovely mini suite.....to which I was immediately whisked, and for which I was comped the first night, given complimentary breakfasts and so on.... Was it the CDC??? of course it was!!!!!
