Sitting on a train on Saturday night. Not planned, so … How did I get here?
Big One was sad. And I was missing her. Only a week until she comes home for Christmas break, and yet it seemed too long for both of us.
We decided I would visit Sunday. And then Saturday, Sunday felt too far away.
Phone calls, texts, and change of plans at home. Need to get Little One’s applications in for University and I can drive out about 3:00. I forgot Little One is not as organized as expected. Ever.
6:30, leaving home, and the bad weather predicted has come to taunt me. 7:00, and I am not far from home, but I am close to the train station. I decide to risk it…pull in, ask for a ticket, the train is due in 9 minutes.
No seats you say? Oh, one seat left, at a price of xx ( insert 2.5 times what you normally pay), and I take it. So, I sit on the train. I am almost there. I text Big One. And she says simply ‘awesome’.
How did I get here? Indeed.
