...go on a road trip.
I had an early morning call today, one of those wonderful automated things that they use to deliver bad news so you can't shout at an actual human. My flight from Austin to Dallas was cancelled. There were no seats on any flight out of Austin to any city that connects with London. I need to get home for tomorrow. The man at British Airways did the "computer says no" thing. Anyway, long story short I am now booked to fly out of Houston (a three hour drive away) tonight, and my husband's amazingly kind and generous best friend is going to drive me there.
