"If I only have an hour in Milwaukee, what should I do?"
The question caught me totally flatfooted.
It came from my airplane seat-mate last weekend, a guy from Albuquerque, New Mexico who was flying to our area to pick up a car for his wife. Seems the only place he could find her desired make/model was southeast Wisconsin, at least one with the one accessory she couldn't live without--a heated steering wheel.
We'd made speaks a few times on the flight back from San Francisco but things grew quiet as the trip continued as he immersed himself in the new ride's owners manual and I dove into my Nook. Milwaukee was beneath our wings as we readied to land. It's then that he asked me the question that caught me unaware.
"If I only have an hour in Milwaukee," he asked, "what should I do?"
Actually, he had a few hours to kill while he waited to pick up his wife's car but I was still flummoxed. I lamely suggested a ride up and down the lakefront through downtown but surely there had to be more options on an early autumn Saturday afternoon.
Damned if I could come up with any on the spur of the moment, though.
My wife saved our bacon by suggesting a visit to the Harley Davidson Museum--perfect, since our new friend was into such things. Crisis averted.
You get the benefit of time before answering, but let me bounce the question off you: if I only have an hour in Milwaukee, what should I do?
