OK. So, I was writing my $525 registration check for Alpha Kappa Alpha's conference when something came flitting across my email: A great deal to travel to China. Great deal, indeed! $899 for air and hotel and the tour. Of course, there will be extras but even with that this is a rare opportunity.
So, I tore up the check to AKA and made it to the China travel agency.
I don't have much more time on this earth and I don't know when my health will break down. So, I'm going now...while I'm well...while I can seize the opportunity!
