My mom called me about her reunion with one branch of our relatives. One of my cousins, who probably is younger than me, is already married and allegedly has a very successful husband -- because he travels abroad a lot.

I don't know who put forth the idea that traveling all over the place equals social status. But I suspect community colleges are to blame, they love to design posters where the grad is standing in an airport somewhere, carrying a laptop and talking/typing on a mobile device. Hooray, since when did living outside of a suitcase become so glamorous?

The subtext of this conversation is of course have I wrangled anyone similarly valuable? I'll need to get a job as an airport security guard and frisk business travellers, there's bound to be someone who has trekked a few miles and is a great catch.
