I have a modern-day commute. I live in Daleville, but my office is in Alexandria near Washington, D.C., not Egypt. I make this distinction because when I go online to check the weather without paying attention, I get the Alexandria in Egypt.
I am supposed to be in my office when I am not on business travel elsewhere. In practice, I am not always physically there, as modern technology makes it possible to be connected to the world from my basement in Daleville while appearing to be in Alexandria. But, I am in my actual office enough to have become very familiar with the commute to it from Daleville and the endearing differences between my area and other regions.
Conklin, of Daleville, is in management in the technology industry.
