Originally, I was on the 10:30 am flight. It’s a whole other story as to how I ended up on the 6:25 am flight.
Yesterday, I scheduled a cab to the airport for 5:15. Normally, this is more than sufficient time to get to the airport, check in, etc. It isn’t sufficient time, however, when you sleep through your alarm, both of the cabbie’s phone calls, and wake up at 5:30.
So, that happened. It doesn’t happen often, but it’s not the first time.
Thankfully, the cab was still in the area (I called him back) and we raced out to the airport.
On the way, I figured out that I had already checked in and I could use my phone as a boarding pass. One less step.
He dropped me off at 5:55, I was through security by 6:02 (thank you MVP status), and on the plane at 6:07.
Boom, boom and boom. Thank you baby Jesus (and karma, and Radio Cab, and the most awesome airport in the US).
