As long as we get there eventually, right?

August 8, 2008

I’m in Providence and holding my breath that the flight my mama is on actually leaves. She’s been sitting in Boston all day and it makes me fret that she could get stuck.

Today was supposed to be an easy day, and it was, except it was about 2 hours behind schedule. This morning I was in Daytona Beach, but because our overnight was only 15:47 we had to stay at the hotel near the airport instead of by the beach where the 16+ hour overnights stay. It was fine though. I had a nice, free breakfast at the hotel, then spent a while out by the pool. It was really hot outside but the water was perfect. One of my passengers yesterday gave me an interesting book that I started reading. I’ve also been reading “On Writing Well”, which is highly recommended for anyone who wants to be able to write well. It makes me much more aware of the things I read and write. I’ll write more about that later.

I had funny passengers tonight who kept talking about the air lounge that is upstairs on the plane. One guy told the one next to him that the stairs were in the back lav, and asked why I didn’t just check the flight cause they have wireless in the lounge. I also had an old couple who gave me a little hope for long, happy marriages. The man would always hand her things to her. He opened her peanuts before his. I asked her if he always took care of her and she said for 62 years. I said that was a good reason to keep him around. He said that I hadn’t asked why he kept her around – so I did. His answer was because she was the perfect wife. They were really cute.

I have to go to sleep cause we’re on short rest tonight and have to leave the hotel in less than hours. Looks like she’ll make it to Atlanta. Very nice.
