Anyway, we were not exactly "traveling" on this day. We were just visiting some friends, the fact that they live 800 miles away was inconsequential for the most part. We didn't do anything but eat lunch, take the kids to the playground, and listen to Michael Jackson. I have no pictures of statues or signs or tourist destinations. I was just really happy to see my friend. We both let out a ridiculous fangirl type scream when we spotted each other at the airport and ran to hug one another. We had not seen each other for two years, but in our defense (both Avita's and mine), it didn't seem like two years. We rarely go longer than a few days without talking for at least an hour on the phone or on Skype.
So, I have nothing about the location itself to report, but I did learn a valuable lesson. The basis I already knew: I can never quit my job, ever. If they fire me, I will cry and beg them to let me stay. I will possibly handcuff myself to whatever object is nearest to me. Obviously this is because of the travel benefits, but also because that morning I learned that there is no way on earth I would ever be able to make a morning flight if I did not have an airport ID which allowed me to skip to the front of the line at the ticket counter/kiosks and security. I do not work in the early mornings, so I had no idea it was like this. I showed up 45 minutes before my flight. Those lines would have taken me two hours to conquer. And waking up at 0200 is pretty hard when you go to sleep at 0200 to begin with.
