Escape From D.C.

When I referenced the classic movie “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles” earlier today, I was merely trying to inject some humor into our travel troubles.  Well, it has now become a self-fulfilling prophecy:  We are now getting ready to board a train to Baltimore so that we can fly from there to Chicago.  There was not a single seat on any of the airlines flying from Washington.   You really can’t make it up.  But the nice lady said we could fly on American Airlines from Baltimore.  Baltimore is about an hour away. So here we sit, at Union Station, with train tickets in hand.  By the way, Union Station is quite a nice place if you ever get the chance to visit.  Restaurants, train stations, movie theaters, shops, and free wireless Internet from a nearby cafe that doesn’t require a password.  Wink.  So let me see:  Automobiles?  Check.  Trains?  Check.  Planes?  I really hope so.

Finally, to my boss, Cassie:  I may or may not be at work tomorrow.  I’m leaning towards “may not.”

    • True story: I said to Charley a couple hours ago, “We’re getting low on cash. Maybe I should go sell shower curtain rings.” Classic.
