Good evening, sorry I’m so late getting going today. You can usually expect #WQWWC to post by 9:00 am, but today slipped by. It must be the time change that we didn’t have here in AZ.
IT’S EASY TO PLAY ALONG WITH #WQWWC
This weekly writing challenge runs from Wednesday through Tuesday. The only rule is to use a quote. If you want to participate, create a pingback to link your post. Not sure how to do that? See how to create pingbacks here. Be sure to link to the most recent post not my page. I don’t see links to my page.
Your Choice or Fog
Coming from Central California where the Tule Fog rules in the winter, I have pictures of the fog. I like it when I’m not driving in the night. Worse yet, if it’s so thick I run through stop signs on a rural highway, which I did once when I was driving my supervisor to a school.
“I see a lot of fog and a few lights. I like it when life’s hidden. It gives you a chance to imagine nice things, nicer than they are.”– Ben Hecht
These photos also work for my entry for Jude’s, Travel Word Blog, Life in Colour Challenge. Her color is black or gray.
“I like the muted sounds, the shroud of grey, and the silence that comes with fog.”– Om Malik.
Amanda from Something to Ponder About hosts Friendly Friday Challenge, which runs for two weeks at a time. This fortnight she invites us to tell about our harrowing airport experiences.
Most of us have had a bumpy ride or two and lost some luggage. If you fly enough, you’ve probably missed flights.
Here’s a positive quote about missing a flight.
If the security personnel do their job properly, they just might cause you to miss your plane, thereby possibly saving your life.— Dave Barry
My Missed Flight
In this instance, I had to fly to Washington D.C. for a conference. I arrived at the Fresno airport 90 minutes early, when an hour was recommended. The American Airline’s line was long, and they were checking in both my flight and the next one. When I got up to the desk 45 minutes later, they said my flight was full and I was too late. I had to FIND another flight.
I flew into a different airport, find a different hotel, canceled the room at the hotel I was supposed to stay in, and arrived at midnight. As it turned out, I don’t think the ticket agent or security personnel saved my life. However, in Washington I called a young woman who had lived with me for a while when she was in high school who was then living in Baltimore, MD. She picked me up at my hotel, drove me to her house, then sightseeing in Baltimore, home to meet her three kids, then drove me across Washington DC. and dropped me off at my next hotel. We had a fabulous time together.
On the way home I was classified and searched as a “terror risk” because I “had missed my Fresno to Washington D.C. flight.”
One of the Camera Monitor TSA agents thought I might be carrying drugs. Line TSA agent in the line put her gloved hand inside my bra on both sides to search me as I stood in line.
I smiled at the other passengers filed by me relieved that it was me, not them who were not being searched.
“She’s fine,” Line Agent reported over her communication device.
Camera TSA agent said, “Search again.”
Line Agent did and said, “There’s NOTHING HERE!”
Jokes didn’t help, by the way. I was a little insulted. I felt very busty in my too tight blouse. “Nothing here” didn’t sound sexy at all.
After some arguing Line Lady yelled, “It’s JUST STITCHING. THERE’S NOTHING HERE.”
Again my life was spared to laugh another day.
Now it’s your turn.
Talk about fog, or combine challenges or pick a topic of your own.
