SUSAN KIM SLEPT IN HER VAN LAST NIGHT
Many of us who work the early morning shift say no to those fun evening events, or things that will get us to bed too late. Not my co-anchor Susan. No, she instead sleeps in her mini-van in the parking lot!
I assured Susan I wasn't going to make fun of her for this. You can see from the Paparazzi style photo I snapped of her this morning, she was none too thrilled at my choice for today's blog topic.
While I find the fact that Susan slept in the parking lot last night amusing... I'm not making fun of her. I respect her for it a great deal.
Susan is an avid golfer, and particularly enjoys golfing with her husband, Patrick. I've golfed with Patrick a number of times, and I don't get what the big deal is... but hey! Okay... that's my little joke. But seriously folks...
So faced with the opportunity to join Patrick and another couple at Whistling Straits Irish Course, followed by an fine dinner and all around good time, Susan did not decline.
She knew it would be late getting back. An afternoon round, followed by dinner, then an hour drive just back to Milwaukee... then another 45 minutes to an hour to her home in Waukesha County. It seemed pointless to Susan to drive all the way home then back just a few hours later so...
..so she slept in her van! I love it!
She rolled into the lot about 9:00... all comfy and cozy... sacked out for 6 hours, and ready to work. I can't imagine sleeping peacefully in the van, much less in the parking lot, but it worked for her.
I think most of us would look pretty rough after a night like that. Susan looked lovely as always, but still that's funny. Susan Kim slept in her van.
What's more... she beat me to work, as always.
