I missed my flight yesterday.
That’s right, I missed my flight. I have never missed one before. I was at my sister’s and all packed in perfect time to get to the airport in time to eat lunch at the airport before my 1:00 flight, and I checked to make sure I had the exact time right, and my flight was boarding in about 10 minutes because I was off by two hours.
I was so hysterical I couldn’t see the paper because my hands were shaking so hard. I called the customer service line and of course got put on hold.
In the end I went to the airport and walked up to the ticket counter, and all I had to do was change my ticket. They didn’t even charge me for the price difference, just a change fee — she said that I was the only person all day who didn’t try to blame anyone else at all, just myself.
There are so many things that are so terrifying in advance, but in reality you just deal with it and move on.
While away I bought a whole bunch of yarn, if you are in Vancouver go to Urban Yarns they are having an amazing sale. I also got to pick up my jumbo flier kit for my spinning wheel — I would like to warn you that airport security looks twice at sealed boxes with unidentified hardware inside. They do seem to let spinning wheel parts through though. She asked: “Is there a screw driver in there?” and I had no idea (a few seconds later I learned there isn’t).
