It’s about 3:15 a.m. and the cab that’s taking us to the train station (because the city bus system does not operate at this hour) is arriving in about 30 minutes. Needless to say…we didn’t even bother to go to bed. We’re both in our usual pre-flight anxious mode, but I’m beginning to wonder if maybe Dr. Darling has fallen asleep on the can.
I have dutifully stowed the tiny Swiss Army knife I usually carry in my left-hand front pocket in the suitcase I plan to check…so naturally, I feel naked.
