That is not how it played out, however. We heard her get up in the morning. We heard some rustling around in bed. We heard her glasses thunk as they were picked up off her night stand. And then we heard.... nothing! So we waited, full of anticipation. And still- nothing! After 10 minutes or so, curiousity got the best of me, and I peeked into her room to see if she really was awake. She was. And she was just sitting there in bed, reading her book. Calm. Cool. Collected. So I emphatically looked at the nightstand and the letter propped up on it. She nodded. I am now bursting. "Well? Did you read it?" I asked.
"Yeah," she answered.
"We're going to Universal Studios," she said calmly.
I am now flummoxed. "Well, yes!!!!" I cried! "Yes!!!"
And then she couldn't contain herself anymore, and the squealing commenced! Whew!
And so, the players got played....
So with a last minute scramble of tidying, packing and key delivery to the neighbour who is kindly looking in on the cats while we are gone, we are off!
The rest of this day was not too exciting. An icy, traumatic trip to the airport. Overpriced, bland airport food. Hurry up and wait as we shuffled through 3 airports, several security checks and baggage transfers.
But after all that, we arrived in Orlando Florida to a warm evening and bunny towels waiting for us in our hotel room window.
