An Open Letter to Chicago

Dear Chicago,
Why do you make it so hard to leave you–even if just for a fortnight or less?  I just wanted to go away for a little vacation.  I planned my trip so diligently–being away at a time when I had the fewest commitments.  Yet every day, I receive another invitation to something fantastic I’ll be missing.  Do you do this because you’re still jealous of Seattle?  I thought we worked that out.  Sorry to bring it up, but you have to admit that you haven’t offered me nearly as many fun things during the time I’m visiting Louisville.  Would you still be offering me all of these treats and opportunities if I wasn’t going back to Seattle for a bit?  I’m just going for a visit, I promise.  I’m with you now!  Don’t you trust me?
