they are saying

It is crazy here.

This is what is happening right next to me and in front of me:

So the Dad just went to smoke a cigarette and his family missed their flight.

The Mom is crying and just said, "Fucking Dad" to her two kids.

There is another Mom with dreadlocks down to her knees singing to her smiling baby.

Minutes ago a woman was firmly explaining to the airport clerk that it was a necessity that she got on the next flight...the airport clerk tried her best to explain the situation, it was tense.

The woman next to me just asked me to watch her bag and listen for her name if they called it for stand-by...she just came back and brought me a water bottle, how nice of her...oh, her name was just called.

I just talked to one of the kids from the first family and he said they found the Dad...but I still don't see him...I'll let you know happens.

Okay, I think he just sat down. Mom is at the counter. Younger kid just sat down next to Dad and is asking questions.

Mom is still pissed.

I am going to try and look like I am not typing everything they are saying.

Mom just walked away.

Younger kid just hugged Dad. Older kid is explaining to Dad the situation, he is very calm. Kids are hilarious.


This might be a long post...they haven't said anything about my flight.

Younger kid is looking at my screen. I just asked him if he can read, he shook his head NO.

Good.

I just showed the two kids my photos from Alaska, Madison, WI, and Mt. Bachelor while their parents figure out their situation.

Older kid tells me that his family is from Wyoming and that they were just in Seattle for a swimming competition for him, he looks like he is about eight, I am impressed that he can hold a conversation with me...while his parents are freaking out.


Well, they just left.

Just a smile from the Mom and they are gone. The kids didn't really say good-bye. I wonder if they will even remember this?


I am sitting in the Denver airport because my flight has been delayed for over two hours...I broke down and bought some online time for $7.95. Life is good.
