scrambly syntax on that subject line sentence. because, i think, should i arrive in grand rapids tonite as planned, that sentence will be a good metaphor for how i’ll feel.
this morning, after a time change that cost me and max an hour of sleep, we’re waking up in st. louis at 4:30am (which is 2:30am to our california bodies — actually, 1:30am, given the time change). i need to get to grand rapids by tonite. but i need to get max home. so we’ll leave our hotel at 5am, drive to the airport and return our rental car, fly at 6:20am, through denver, to san diego, theoretically arriving at 9:55am cali time. i’ll walk max out to the curb, where jeannie will be waiting. kiss, kiss, and back into the airport, for my 11:00 flight through chicago, to detroit (flights into grand rapids today were crazy expensive for some reason). land in detroit, theoretically, at 9:30pm, get my rental car, and drive a little over 2 hours to grand rapids.
there is so much opportunity for derailment in this ridiculous plan.
