Rapid City, SD
John Candy and Steve Martin, eat your heart out. I think it’s about time for me to rent Planes, Trains and Automobiles again, although this time it might hit a little close to home.
I’ve been traveling for over 10 hours already today, and I’m only now about to take off on a plane. I haven’t even left South Dakota yet! Thankfully, I haven’t had a rental car catch on fire, no one sang the Flintstones theme song on our bus trip, and I haven’t had to room with any large men who leave their enormous underwear in the sink. So I should be thankful.
Unfortunately, now I won’t be getting the Perfect Attendance Award at the end of the school year. Due to my flight cancellation today, I won’t be able to make it to Pennsylvania for the Teacher Forum in time to speak. So I’m heading home.
If all goes well, I’ll be home by 10pm tonight, a full 18 hours after I started my journey. It might have been quicker to drive! Unless, of course, I let John Candy take the wheel.
