The joys of traveling.
Last week’s trip to Birmingham was flawless so I should have known there would be issues this week. My flight as delayed and they rerouted me from Jax to Houston, then to Dallas and finally to the OKC. Left Gville at 9:30 a.m. and got in at 10 p.m.
And they lost my luggage.
So I sit here an hour away from going to stadium for press conference with the same clothes I put on Tuesday morning. I called the airline (won’t give the name but it’s a region of the country) and they said it would arrive at my hotel in four to six hours.
“What are you, the cable company?” I asked.
It hasn’t been a total loss. I did visit my friends at the Biting Sow blues bar Tuesday night. Gloria and Lanny are off to Missouri for a vacation today. I hope they travel safe. Really good people.
It’s amazing that I had never been to the state of Oklahoma before coming here three years ago with softball and now I’ve been here four times in three years. Bricktown is still one of my favorite places.
The irony of this whole thing is I totally underpacked for B’ham and grabbed a bigger bag for this trip. I made sure I had plenty of everything because I will be here until Sunday at a minimum and could be here for more than a week. And now my bag, so well packed, is being held hostage by an airline.
Sorry. Just had to vent.
