Waiting for the bus.
So to start off this day Katy found out our flight was delayed more than just a few hours. The six hour push caused u to miss the connecting but that ok because we now get to ride the London subway "The Tube" and then take a surface train to Leeds.
After Katy and I leave Dreamworks we swing by local batting cages we head our friends house and open the "locked" door. You know it's a good thing that good people like don't go by and find open houses and sneak in there to grab a quick shower and a snack. Anyways guys we shut the door for you. Thank us later.
To make matters worse we missed the bus on account of me forgetting to pack my secret Santa gift.
I was able to sprint across 6 lanes of traffic and dash through all of the bewildered shoppers up to the Macy's door and within minutes score the very same gift. "Quick to the cashier!" I arrive and wait for 20 minutes behind ladies who can't decide between black and brown and want to ask their new best friends advice. After those ladies and the ones putting things on hold, who ever passed up an expensive impulse buy and came back the next day anyway? So it's now my turn, the cashier can't swipe my card and then so I have to wait in another line and start it all over again.
The second line is the same story up until I am next. It's almost my turn and I've about had it with the slow pokes and some guy notices how close I am to destroying the case of gift cards and calls me over. That man saved a lot of people a lot of terror by adverting my inner HULK by given me cutsies.
Finally I'm out of there and running, no sprinting again through the halls of Stanfurd shopping mall only to take a wrong turn in to Bloomingdales! What ever I'm not stopping! Jogging turned to running when I saw the doors. Full sprint across the parking lot and jumping over the hedge and over the 6 lane road. Yes I'm there! "Katy did I make it?" "No"
Shit. And now that's where we are waiting 57 minutes for the hourly bus.
We are just trying to leave Palo Alto. We're not even to the airport....
