I’ve been known to write in a grocery store while simultaneously pushing a cart. There are times when I’ll grab the iPad and write in the car while Bob’s driving. But one of my favorite places to write while in transit is in an airline terminal. On my phone, with my thumbs, surrounded by pissed-off harried and hurry-up passengers.
This morning it’s another mechanical delay. The plane’s battery is leaking and the mechanics must still be sleeping, like I wish I was. So for the sixth time in our last eight flights we will miss our connection in Charlotte NC. I’m surprisingly chill about this, after all it falls into that serenity prayer category – something about the wisdom to accept the things I cannot change. To know the difference.
It’s been a whirlwind run up to this trip. There was a floor that needed to be replaced due to freezing temperatures and a furnace condensation pipe leak. Yes deux-ex machina things happen all the time.
And we needed to seriously prune our front and side yard shrubs and trees. When you live in the forest it’s a constant battle not to be consumed by the forest. But to celebrate Spring, Bob got a chance to test drive a Tesla this weekend. Can I say the smile stayed on his face for a full day and a half!
It’s the closest thing to a self-driving car; it parallel parks itself and slows down when the car in front slows down, hands free! It goes from 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds in Ludicrous mode, which is insane! I wonder if it could write my blog at the same time?
Bob has over 300,000 miles on his Acura so he can dream can’t he? Hope y’all get out to the polls today. Don’t let a leaky anything stop you!
