Have I mentioned lately how much I hate airports and the whole security process. We were running behind today just a little getting to the airport, and they don’t have a dedicated place to check your bag when you are already checked in, except the kiosk out front where they charge you $3 to check a bag. I was being a tightwad and didn’t way to pay the $3, so we stood in line…. forever. When we finally got to the little thingie, up pops the message… IT’S TOO LATE TO CHECK ANY BAGGage, YOU MORON… YOU SHOULD HAVE CHECKED IT AT THE CURB AND PAID THE $3.
Well, it didn’t exactly say that, but it might as well have. So then I have to transfer from my suitcase all the things that they will confiscate if I take my bag through security, send Harry back to the truck with several expensive creams and the perfumes that I had planned to talk about, but… well, not gonna happen, as you probably guessed by now.
So I’ve rummaged around in my purse and only come up with some sample vials of things I’ve already talked about. I did get to sniff briefly the new TDC, Sublime Balkiss, right before I left, and there’s a little lingering on my arm, but not to any degree that I can say anything intelligent about it except, “it smells really nice after 8 hours on my arm,” which actually might say a lot that a TDC from Celine Ellena lasts that long. It’s her usual understated style, and it certainly has been nice to wear all day, but honestly? I was paying more attention to the whole flying/driving thing than the perfume. So… nothing remotely intelligent.
But we did rent a car that I’ve been wanting to test drive for a long time, a Cadillac STS. Suh-weeet! Man, you just hit the footfeed and you are jacked up. For my mid-life crisis car, I was leaning more towards a sports model, but that Caddy is pretty nice. Any other suggestions for a sporty model of car that I need to check out? I used to have a Datsun 280Z before I had kids, and now that I don’t need a car to haul them around anymore, I want something sporty again.
