Bear With Me While I Ramble

Traveling last week threw me all out of sorts. I have a million different posts flying around in my head, but can't seem to focus on just one topic. So instead, I bring you four brief travel-related stories and a random fact. Kinda like "Four Weddings and a Funeral," except not.

1. I had to race to make my connecting flight back to Nebraska out of the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. Even though I had to get from Terminal A to Terminal B, the little map of DFW in the back of the American Airlines magazine made it look it would be quicker to walk there than take the shuttle. TIP FOR THE FUTURE: Those maps are not drawn to scale. I repeat - the maps are NOT drawn to scale. Do not trust the maps. Always take the shuttle. For God's sake, always take the shuttle.

2. While perusing the latest edition of Sky Mall magazine on one of my flights, I decided I must have the following items:

However, I do not need "The Zombie of Montclaire Moors." That's just weird.

3. If you find yourself saying "It's not that hot" at 8:30am on a Texas Tuesday morning, you have absolutely no clue about just how hot it's going to get.

4. Be careful about being a good sport and telling the client "Sure, Mexican food sounds great!" when you really hate Mexican food with the fiery passion of a thousand suns. Because you just might find yourself eating Mexcian food for every single meal thereafter.

And now for the random fact: Scott caught a fly Mr. Miyagi style tonight at dinner. It buzzed on in the kitchen and landed on Aidan's sippy cup. Aidan then shrieked at such a high decibel that I think it temporarily stunned the fly which allowed Scott to catch it scissor-finger style. It was quite a sight and we were all duly impressed.

And if that wasn't random, then I don't know what to tell you. Hopefully this week I'll be back to my regularly scheduled posting content. :-)
