I am far away
On our anniversary
Dinner with Ed instead
Dinner with a friend 2000 miles from home is no way to spend my 30th anniversary.
Our 30th anniversary on 8-19 found me 2000 miles from home on a business trip. I had flowers delivered because I didn't make it to 30 years by being an idiot.
We weren't celebrating until the weekend so it wasn't that big of a deal that I was out of town. However I almost missed that too as I had both a pre-check screw up and a security snafu at the Denver airport that led to me getting to the gate 5 minutes after takeoff.
The plane was still there. I have never been so happy to have the middle seat at the back of a Southwest flight. If I had missed the flight I was probably stuck in Denver until Sunday.
We spent the weekend in Hampton, VA, hanging out at Buckroe Beach by day and enjoying a nice seafood dinner on Saturday night.
It wasn't the epic European vacation that we had been talking about (thanks COVID-19!) but it was just fine. Beach, beer, seafood, and the love of my life. All my favorite things!
