The text arrived this afternoon from She(WMBO):
Her: Pick me up at Reagan Airport tomorrow 310 American airlines from Chicago O'Hare.
Me: Why not BWI?
Understand BWI is about 5 minutes from here. Reagan is in DC. Not outside DC. IN DC, half way 'round the Beltway. Not the Baltimore Beltway (695). The Capital Beltway (495). 495 makes 695 look like a tea party.
No, I don't want to go to Reagan.
Her: Coming into Reagan because first class into Dulles is 500 more
As if that answered my question.
As if Dulles would be an improvement. It twice as far half way around 495 the other way in Virginia!
Me: Hold on. You want me to go to Reagan so you can fly first class?
Her: My back hurts
Me: No first class into BWI?
Her: All full.
So I responded as only a caring husband could respond.
Me: You understand, this sucks really big time.
Me: As you wish.
Her: Love you honey
Another Princess Bride moment
