I Sound Like I'm Honking

Hello, my friends! Here I am, back in the wonderful US of A. There is nothing like coming home to your own bed and a clean pair of pajamas, am I right?

On Thursday morning, Vicki and I woke up at o'dark hundred and headed to the Tunis/Carthage airport. She boarded a plane for Paris, where she rendezvoused with her husband and spent three glorious days in the City of Love.

I, on the other hand, waited four hours for my flight to Paris with a bunch of nicotine-addicted Tunisians (it would have cost $400 to change my flight so we could fly together), then spent three hours in Paris trying to buy as much Duty Free as possible, then 9 hours on a flight to Atlanta, watching the new Mission Impossible and trying not to get Deep Vein Thrombosis, and THEN I ate a giant cookie in the Atlanta airport (because what is better for you than a bunch of carbs after you have already eaten two lunches, a dinner and a that order?) and flew three more hours to Denver where I immediately came down with a ridiculous upper respiratory virus that has laid me flat on my back since Friday.

Wow. That was the LONGEST run-on sentence in the history of the FC. You're welcome?

So, needless to say, my weekend was fairly uneventful. I have caught up on a lot of Hulu, read a book, slept, worn three different pairs of stretchy pants and praised God for helping my immune system last this long. This definitely would have slowed down my trip if this would have hit any sooner. Thankfully, the only thing I have to worry about now is sounding like I am honking at people. However, if you need someone to do an impression of Barry White's younger brother (I have no idea if he even has a younger brother), then I am your girl.

Thanks a ton for following along on this latest adventure. And I was serious about visiting Tunisia, you totally should. It is a beautiful place. I mean, what is not to love about a country that serves french fries with everything?

My thoughts exactly.

So I hope your Monday is off to a great start and free of all forms of honking.


  1. Too bad we can't hang out today. I'm sure your honking would make me laugh uncontrollably. Which would make me squeak. Honk squeak honk squeak honk squeak. I think that sounds like just what I need.

    Feel better soon <3

    1. Oh my gosh, this totally made me laugh! And a honk-laugh is quite hilarious. I miss you a lot. :)

  2. Sad you are honking. :( I hope you feel better soon!
