Tonight I got a strange call from my best friend from college, Stephanie, who currently lives in Seattle. She was supposed to be flying to Iceland, but got delayed in Minneapolis and so would be missing her connecting flight in Boston. Unexpectedly stranded in Boston for the night, she called to make plans to meet up.
It was quite late by the time she got in and sorted out her travel plans for tomorrow, so she decided to stay at the hotel near the airport rather than have me make a late night run down there. I’ll go fetch her tomorrow morning after Bella goes down for her nap. She has to be back in time to catch a 1pm flight back to Minneapolis. (Don’t even ask.) But at least she can have brunch with us, hang out for a bit, and see Bella again.
What a delightful surprise!
