COMING AND GOING
Nurse G and Mr. Curly Pink Mohawk flew away very early this morning. They're going to visit Nurse G's college room mate, who is also a nurse. It's Pink Mohawk's very first plane ride. It's Nurse G's first plane ride with a not-quite-yet-4-year-old. Especially noted is the fact that C.O. is not going with them ... it's that job thingie ... so Nurse G is on her own with a typically antsy-active little boy ... pardon me, BIG kid ... who has not yet mastered patience. They have a three hour delay at O'Hare. THREE HOURS! With Mr. Antsy Curly Pink Mohawk. Oh joy. For the past week, we've all taken turns giving Mr. Antsy Pants Pink Mohawk the "there are bad people out there" talk. I never had to give Zappa and Nurse G this talk, at least not at this age. It's maddening to think that there's a need to tell these things to a preschooler, that their innocense must be jaded as a precaution. But that's another rant for another day. However, I am as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rockers. I won't rest until Nurse G has called to say they've arrived safe'n'sound.
Also off, to places unknown, is Miss Snark:
Sayonara Snarklings! Back on 8/28
Reticule contents: sunglasses, fold up gin pail, passport, emergency chocolate rations, George Clooney's cell phone number and a wallet stuffed with freshly laundered credit cards.
And returning to her ByrdDroppings for our blog-surfing pleasure is Lorie ... with Oklahoma Pictures: I took the picture from inside the car because there was no fence between us and buffalo. I wanted a good picture, but I am not insane.
I miss the Pink Mohawk already ... siiiiiiiigh ...
