today was departure day for my mom. she’s headed back to the states, back to driving on the right – and the right – side of the road, back to fritos, back to her own bed and back to dr. pepper. it went something like this.
first, she checked in and found out she could check her luggage through to dallas – yippee.
then, upstairs to immigration and international departures
and then she boarded her plane and was off.
at the same time, sort of – but not exactly – bh, too, was boarding a plane. back to us. eventually. with a stop in hong kong. so really, back our way. and he has with him the one and only thing i could think of to ask him to bring me.
hopefully, they will still be intact when he boards his next plane. that really will bring him home. for a day.
