The annoying thing is that I don’t have a camera to document my travels with this time. That is to say, I have never had a camera, but usually I travel with someone who does. This time, not so much.
Yesterday I flew. I hate flying. However, hanging out in airports isn’t so bad.
Ben: You have a special talent, Emily. You can entertain yourself for hours in a kid’s toy store.
Me: You can’t?
Ben: Uh, no.
Me: Oh Ben, look at this hat!!! (It was a pink cowgirl hat with a tiara on the front and silver sequins around the brim. Basically the most girly thing you will ever see in your life.)
Ben: Um, how old are you?
Me: (trying it on) But it’s so PRETTY!!!
Ben: Like I said…how old are you?
The annoying thing about flying back east on a free ticket is that there is a high chance that you will arrive very, very late. Why is this? (a chance for you to do some critical thinking.)
Ben is annoyed at the humidity in PA. I am amazed that it is warm at midnight. Hello, summer! School is out, and Oregon rain is behind me for now. Hopefully for the rest of the summer, since I’m hoping the dry season will be in full swing by the time I get back.
I saw a baseball game tonight, played by my cousin-in-law Jay. Afterwords I saw all these weird blinking lights in the distance.
“Jay, what are all those lights?” I asked.
“You seriously don’t know what they are?”
Oh, of course. I had forgotten about lightening bugs. I so love the east for that.
Until later, then,
