The phone rings.
“Hi honey, just wanted to let you know that the plane is delayed and I am going to be about an hour late. I will give you a call when I am on the train.”
Pretty considerate really, it is blowing up a storm outside and I am not looking forward to the drive to the train station to collect him.
“Ok, so where exactly are you now?” He is calling from his mobile phone, so I am guessing he has landed already and need to calculate how long I have before I need to pick him up.
“I am sitting somewhere around the middle of the plane.”
…Cue the crickets chirp, chirp, chirp…chirp, chirp…
Not quite the answer I was looking for.
