Home Again, Home Again, Jiggety Jog

5:00 AM, PDT:

Lt. Trouble: Got everything?

Me: Yes.

Lt. Trouble: Are you sure?

Me: Of course I'm sure. I spent half the day yesterday packing to make sure it all fit. You realize you and your girlfriend gave the kids about three pounds of candy each?

Lt. Trouble: Did you pack your camera?

Me: Of course I packed it! Do you think I'm some sort of idiot? I wouldn't forget that! It's got all my pictures--including the ones of me and The Queen of Dorks. I'm not forgetting that!

Lt. Trouble: Okay, if you're sure--let's get to the airport.

5:00 pm, EST:

Me: (on the phone) Hi! We just landed! It was a good flight....ummm....I think I left the camera in my bedroom.

Lt. Trouble: Yeah. We'll mail it to you tomorrow.

Somewhere along the line, I caught on to your blog and tone, and I'm hooked.
