What a beautiful Hawaiian morning here at Pearl Harbor. I’ve been awake since just after 5 am here…which would be about 9 am at home in the Midwest.
Word on the street is that winter storm Nemo is headed their way….dropping some unwelcome slushy icy snow. Such a shame that I will miss it. Seriously, bummer.
Not quite as much of a bummer as breathing in someone’s rancid breath on a 6 and 1/2 hour airplane ride. Or as much of a bummer as being told by a middle aged, overweight woman in orange that I had a tag in the armpit of my jacket.
I bought this awesome blue leather jacket a few months ago on sale. Because of the weather at home, I was saving it for spring or for a cute night out. Or Hawaii! Perfect!
The tag was dangling from the armpit. I could’ve sworn that I never removed it and searched the thing for evidence of purchase…but when you’re looking at things at 4 am on 3 hours of sleep, I suppose you miss things.
I made it through check in, security, flight #1, walking through the Chicago airport, buying yogurt and a smoothie, and boarding flight #2 before my orange clad savior poked me on the arm and pointed out my fashion don’t.
I told her that it was hilariously embarrassing. I forgot to tell my husband after he picked me up because I was too excited and starving for fresh air.. but now I share my embarrassment with cyberspace.
