The Airport..............Da Count
|It's been a long drive........there is anticipation. My phone rings..........hello??? Are you here yet?|
I'm about 20 minutes frome you lass, I'll be the guy biege trench coat, blue hat.
The tension mounts...the anticipation........and then there she is, at the airport waiting for me with her daughter and sister...
Big hug........Hi and welcome baby sis.....:)
*EDIT* Well, thats what I anticpated anywho. My luck with airports and actually getting to one "on-time" is regarded as iffy at best. Much to my delight, the relative traffic today in Chicago today was such that I could drive the speed limit or faster almost the entire trip. I was actually parked, and walking to luggage return when I got that phone call, and it was 20 minutes early...go figure..lol
The sisters had just deboarded and I would be at the conveyor belt before them, time to buy a pack of gum so I didn't reek of road coffee and cigs. Couple of hugs, a chance to meet my baby niece, idle chat, and we were off.
I hadn't really intended to make this a "Da Count" but today I am. Today I'm going to remember family alive is as important as family passed. Today, I'm going to remember that no matter how rarely you see them, some family are still great to see. Today I'm going to be thankful for historically good traffic..........
