Air shipment arrives early! Dang!
Well, expateek's last air delivery arrived the other day... an hour earlier than expected! So while we were still faffing around drinking coffee at home, this one (Peregrine) was sitting in Warsaw's Okęcie Airport, thinking that we'd all forgotten him.
I'm sure his anxiety was in part due to my terrible parenting from two decades ago, when I threatened to leave him behind at Kmart because he was being so naughty.
"Get out! Get out! Get out of the car now! You can just stay here!" I shrieked. He was... what? Two and a half years old? The beginning of a lifetime of abandonment issues.
Since when do planes arrive more than an hour earlier than expected? We'll try to bill the air traffic controllers if there are any resultant psychological counseling bills.
But needless to say, we're thrilled that our family is together for the holidays. Only about 10 flights and about 20,000 air miles involved.
Time for the Christmas festivities to begin!
