Still sends chills down my spine.
Many things have scared me in my lifetime. But there are a few that still freak me
out. The most recent -
10:05 pm cdt
1. THE SCREAM - An oversold plane. Running an hour behind schedule. The
passengers were all sleep. Half-way through the trip, suddenly, a high-pitched scream pierced the air. My baby boy who was
on my lap decided he did not want to sit still any longer and started to stomp on the seat in front of us in protest.
He then proceeded to pull the lid off his sippy cup and poured all the water on us and threw the cup somewhere on the plane all
while shreiking. While looking apologetically at our fellow travelers who had to turn to see the commotion, I sat
in wet jeans, covered in froot loops the rest of the trip home because I was not smart enough to pack extra clothes for
2. THE FORGOTTEN - After a long trip with our 2 rambunctious little boys in the Carribean,
we check out of our resort. We meticulously reviewed all of our travel documents, arrangements, and luggage when we see our
baby getting a little fussy. The horror dawns on us that we cannot find his blankie - WE LEFT IT ON THE BED IN OUR JUST CHECKED-OUT
ROOM. As I race back to the room, I find that it had ALREADY BEEN CLEANED! We still had to get to the airport
and on a 2-legged flight back to Chicago with a tired baby looking for his blankie! Nooooooo!
My hubby is a horror movie buff who has dragged me to see some of his favorites.
None of them come close
to the terror I felt those days.
[NOTE: Beaches Resort saw how pathetic we were and sent someone to the laundry
to check all the bedding to find Mr. Monkey Blanket. Thank God they came back with blankie in time for baby to nap.]
And a Happy Halloween to you.
