When people would ask me if I was excited about our trip, I would say something along the lines of, “When we are in our bed in Florida, about to fall asleep, I’m going to get so excited about our trip.” This is totally true.
Now, I’m not a pessimist. I’m actually an optimist. (Which, in hindsight, is maybe why I focused on the point when things will be going right instead of the possibility of the things that could go wrong.) Anyway…
Overall, everything went just fine. There were lots of delays, including before we even could leave London, but we all managed just fine.
I had found a Rescue Hero at a store in London despite the fact that they don’t typically carry those here, and had set it away for the trip. That morning before we even went to the airport I gave it to Jayce, and Captain Cuffs made the day’s layovers much easier on my buddy.
