Flying through the Twilight Zone

I should have driven to Ohio – would have gotten here faster. Yesterday’s trip started in Syracuse, went to LaGuardia (NYC), Philly, then Akron. In LaGuardia we had to wait while they loaded our plane with sandbags. Bad passengers! We didn’t pack enough luggage. And then we sat on the runway… to punish us, I guess. I am working very hard to block the trauma and delays at the Philly airport, so I’m not going into it yet.

But my fellow passengers on Surreal Air were as bemused as I was, so the stress level was low. And I got here, which was the point.

I leave in a few minutes for Timken High. The plan for the day is a little different than my usual school visits. I’m really excited to see how it’s going to go. Plus, I’m jazzed about meeting some of the artists at this school. I’ve seen some of their work, and they are wicked talented.

  3. your awesome word

    Mrs. Anderson? I just wanted to thank you for enlightening me to the wonderful word ‘defenestrate’ at Christmas. The transitive verb just itches to leap off my tongue (often at inopportune moments), filled with possibilities. I’ve shared it with all my friends, and they agree that it is a wicked fun word to use – and we try to use it as often as we can.

    Thanks again – Sarah from Indiana 🙂
