The day has come.
They are on their way.
They flew away.
Someone is a little excited.
Post motion sickness meds excited:
He's excited on the inside now.
We said goodbye.
I watched them walk into the jetway
And then I sat.
And briefly considering running after the plane and climbing aboard.
But then I remembered I was wearing my black patent leather flip flops.

Got in the elevator
Got in my car

So giddy up.
Here we go.
Help is on the way.
