It will just be a quick trip, but it'll be great to finally get out there. I'm flying there, with my Sis. I know it's only a five-hour drive, but that's a bother I just don't feel like dealing with -- especially what with construction and rush-hour and what-not. We leave friday Sept 9th right after work, then come home sunday afternoon.
When I booked the tickets, after I'd hit confirm, I saw the return date written out on the screen. September 11th, that sounded familiar for some reason....
Oh. 9-11. Oh yeah.
I'm not an overly paranoid person, but it was a bit odd to notice nonetheless. My brain, being its usual practical self, pointed out to me that a flight from Chicago to Detroit wouldn't have nearly enough fuel to blow up a building. That was a bit odd to notice also. I'm not sure if I should feel morbid, embarrassed that I even considered it, or relieved. Mostly I guess I just feel a little sad, that it should be an issue at all.
