Ok, I'm Back. :)
On Friday morning, I arrived at the front door where I was blindfolded and put into the back of a car. I figured they were going to take me to the airport. Any time I asked a question it was ignored or I was told to refer to the instruction guide. I know the route to the airport like the back of my hand and something was out of whack. They were driving me via all the back roads and even entered a few parking lots along the way to confuse me. I had no idea where the hell I was going.
Anyhow, the car stopped and I was let out of the car and the blindfold came off. We were indeed at the airport. When we went to check in, I was held back and wasnt privy to what the final destination was. This continued through customs where the customs agent played along with the game.
I was in the airport with no idea where I was going.
Only at boarding did I get a little clue. We were heading to Chicago. I pretty much figured out that that was just a connecting city and it wasnt the final destination. It was driving me mental not knowing what was going on and they were loving the fact that I was annoyed.
After a 2 hour layover in Chicago where the eyebrow face made a few appearances, it was time to board. We arrived at the gate and I discovered that we were heading to Phoenix. Hmmmm, I thought, "thats an interesting choice." Then it hit me. My in-laws have been spending part of the winter in Arizona in an RV. Hey, I love the in-laws and all that, but.... this wasnt what I was expecting.
When my daughter got the sense that this was what I was thinking, she launched into a performance that would have won an Oscar. "I cant wait to see Grandma eh Dad, isn't this just the coooolest?"
As soon as we were airborne I began to drink.
We landed in Phoenix and were wisked away in a car heading for God knows where.
We ended up here [pointesouthmtn.com]. :)
Once we checked into our room, the girls gave me another card. In it was a gift certificate to spend a full day at the Bondurant school of high performance driving [bondurant.com]. I was blown away. I spent all day Sunday driving on a race track in a 405hp ZO6 Corvette. Needless to say it was over the top fun.
How can that be possibly topped. ;)
