This Would Have Been A Funnier Story If They Had Called Someone Else at 5 Something In The Morning
The Pineapple Parents left for vacation very early this morning. Lucky them -- well, except for the whole thing about the plane leaving at 6:30 in the morning. On the upside, there aren't that many people at the airport and there isn't any traffic. But I think these facts are severely outweighed by the fact that your plane leaves at 6:30 in the morning. Like other sane people I was sound asleep when my phone started ringing at 5 something this morning. At first I was confused by what that awful noise was. I was confused as to why my alarm was going off while it was still dark outside. When I figured out that my phone was ringing, I answered it. The Pineapple Mom was calling because they were at the airport without one of their bags. I wasn't all that suprised because I am related to them and that is exactly what I would do that early in the morning. Then she tells me that the bag is by the curb in front of their house! Not only did they schedule their vacation to start at some ungodly hour, but they picked this morning to try out for some sort of slap stick comedy show. So I drive over there (still in my pajamas because it is 5:30 in the morning) and there it is. A bag sitting in a bed of tulips. I take it to the airport and drop it off with these parting words to The Pineapple Dad: "This would have been a lot funnier if you had called someone else."
