New York City meets Munich

Revolving door

April 2nd, 2002 · No Comments · Uncategorized

The slower, more difficult security procedures now in place at JFK airport beside being inconvenient for the traveler, also make saying goodbye a lot less dignified and graceful.

>Conny boarded her flight to Munich last night, and we said our awkward farewells in the serpentine security queue. It wasn’t hard to see her go, because I know I’ll see her again soon.

We’ll be apart for a little while, and I plan on making the best of the situation. That means squirreling myself up with the computer, rolling my sleeves up, and coding, coding, coding. That’s the plan, any way.

It’ll start come Sunday, because for the next few days, I’ve got my friend Beth coming for a visit. She’s in town for a teacher’s conference, and I told her it would be no problem. I lied slightly, though, because in the time leading up to Conny View definition in a new window’s departure, I’ve neglected a few things around the apartment. Now the place is a wee bit of a pit. Somehow I have to get it all into reasonable, dust-boulder and shower-plaque free shape in the hour between when I get home from work and when she’ll arrive.

Maybe I’ll just make her wear dark glasses around the apartment instead.
