Today we were ushered to the airport on chariots of gold. A 20 piece band played Dixieland as a send off. The woman at the counter waived our overweight bags through a loophole with a nod.Then security took over an hour as 43 women unpacked 88 tubes of cosmetic goo that could, in a world of lipstick spies and hair salon bombings, be classified as a terrorist threat.

Did you know you have to be ON BOARD all flights 15 minutes prior to take-off or get shut out? We didn’t. But now we do. It goes something like this, 5 minutes before take-off:

“O’Roarty’s?”

“Yes?” (out of breath)

“Sorrrrrrry.” (head shaking in mock sympathy).

Do you hear it? That’s the sound of our first day of adventure sizzling into a day-long wait at LAX. The next flight’s tonight and they’ll be so happy when they realize they’ve made us wait until JUST before Ginger starts to get cranky before bed. Oooh, this is gonna be fun!
