I’ve returned home from my first ever San Francisco trip. I not only managed to bring with me a bagful of useless SF souvenirs and some great new clothing…I also managed to bring home a stomach bug. I wasn’t feeling well on the plane from SFO to DFW. When we landed, I ran to the bathroom, pulled my phone out to check the time, realized the plane was boarding and rushed to make my flight…promptly leaving my phone in the bathroom.
I realized my error after they had closed the doors. I spoke to the flight attendant and he told me it happens all the time and instructed me on what to do when I landed. We landed. I talked with the attendant at the desk and he gave me the number for Lost and Found in DFW. He wasn’t as optimistic as my flight attendant but he said maybe I’d get lucky.
I headed to baggage claim thinking “Oh well. that’s what I have insurance for.”
Fishdog and Rader pick me up and we head to a restaurant. I’m starting to really feel bad, bad enough that I don’t even want a beer. I order soup and eat only a couple of bites before we head home. While we’re there, Mark receives a call from me. LOL Someone did find my phone and turned it in to AA. He instructed me to call Lost and Found in the morning, and they would help me get my phone back. (I did just that this morning, and my phone is heading toward Oxford as I type. Thank you to the person who turned in my BlackJack!)
I realize I’m shivering when we get to the house, so I take my temperature: 101.1
Of course it is. Well, at least I’m at home now.
I call and talk to my rockin’ boss and let her know that I definitely won’t be back at work on Tuesday. She’s cool with that, as she doesn’t want me bringing my bug infested self to the office. Then I throw on three layers of clothing and an afghan, drink some hot tea, and watch the season finale of LOST that my family tivoed for me while I was gone.
Wow. That was an awesome show.
Pictures and SF stories will come soon. I hope I’ll be feeling 100% tomorrow so I can head back to work. Right now, that’s debatable.
It’s good to be home.
