A Trip

So I had a trip for work to Rapid City. I do this every year. They were expecting a blizzard Friday but I was going to be ok because my flight was Sunday afternoon. The snowstorm would all be over and I would be fine. (I love traveling confirmed.)

Sunday I had my bags packed, I saw that the two morning flights were cancelled but mine was fine and there was another later one for backup.

Then I got a call.  My flight was cancelled.  I called a friend at the airline.  No space on the later flight.  I went to the airport and picked up a car.  Before I got out of town I got a call that I had been rebooked on the late flight.  I returned the car.   I parked myself at the club in the airport and settled in until my buddy who works at the club (how else would I be able to get into the club?) had a break so we could lunch together.  Everything was going to work fine.

Then I got a call.  The late flight was cancelled.  I wasn't really sure what to do so I had lunch with my buddy.

Then I had an epiphany.  I would rent a car, pick up Boy-child and drive to Rapid City.  I could do it if I had his company and help!

Boy-child and I are a great road trip team.  We had fun.  Good conversation.  Crazy adventure.

And then, the next morning, one of my co-workers missed the bit about my driving companion being my son.  She thought he was my boyfriend.  When Boy-child showed up for lunch she stared at him, mouth gaping open, and she said to herself, "Boy, Soxanne's not doin' bad!"

What a great laugh we had at that!

One person had to join the conference via face-time.  I'm glad I didn't have to join via face-time.  I like going to this conference every year.

Boy-child flew home Monday night.  I got back home tonight in time to go to the cemetery, have a couple of tacos and appreciate just how bad that Dracula movie really is.

We shouldn't have to worry about blizzards in early October. That is just wrong.

Well, yeah, but should she be able to watch a movie outside in warm weather in early October either?

And then for whatever reason, it posted my comment without my identity? Hi, it's me!

Everything is backwards this year - normally it's 20 degrees warmer in Rapid City than it is here...
