Delayed redux

7/22/2021 Rebooked for the 23rd

“‘Brought back?’ she says, ‘Your flight isn’t until tomorrow, the 23rd.’ — It’s 6:30 am after a few hours of restless sleep — I beg to get on another flight, they can put me on standby, but it might mean I get stranded in Charlotte, North Carolina for days”
“After weeks of storms, it seemed like a perfect time to take a mini-pre-trip, trip — I said to my wife, ‘Do you want to bring your work computer?’ Until last week she thought I was leaving on Friday”
“I had a friend who was desperate to leave Buffalo, NY and move to California to be with her people in the late 1970s — She and her partner emptied their savings accounts and bought a used van — As they approached the Buffalo city limits the van threw a rod and they pulled over on the city side of the city’s border — Since they weren’t allowed to leave NY, she founded the best H.E.A.D. shop, Starseed Enterprises, and he founded an MDA cult in the hills outside of Ithaca, NY”
“My brother asked ‘Are you sure you want to continue on with this farce?’ I replied ‘Yes.’ Despite the frustration, my wife told me I can’t found a 3,4-Methylenedioxyamphetamine cult this year, what else can I do but try again and again”
