Bah! The only thing I forgot to pack was a book! I wanted to trade in my copy of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo at the airport bookstore. They have a Read and Return program for 50% credit. I was going to trade it in for the next book in the series. Oh well…I’m still going to go ahead and buy the next one anyway.
This morning while still in the St. Louis airport, I was 3 inches away from being hit over the head by a wet ceiling tile that fell apart and crashed to the floor just as I was in the store buying a Coke. My bag, pants leg, and shoe got wet…not too bad but it was a very close call right before having to board my plane.
On the plane, I sat behind a black cowboy….big cowboy hat, boots, buckle, even a brown bandana tied around his neck. When we stepped off the plane, an attendant actually sang out, “I wanna be a cowboy, baby!” I refrained from Village People jokes though I did want to ask.
Ate lunch at Tony Packo’s: cabbage roll, hot dog, chili, fried pickles.
