Friday's Fear-Inducing Escapade

Saturday, July 13, 2013

Danny didn't get the nickname "Houdanny" at summer camp for nothing! Today I put him on a plane for Dallas where his dad was going to pick him up. I told him specifically to wait at the gate, that his father would come there. So.........what did he do when his dad wasn't there the second he got off the plane?

Well, he decided to go looking for him, of course. And ended up at one of the baggage claims. At which point he decided he should probably contact me. So he asked a friendly stranger (!!) if he could borrow her phone. Then when I answered he asked me if I would be so kind as to call his dad and let him know that he was at Baggage Claim C 15.

I called his dad all right. Then I started banging my head against the wall. Somehow the warnings you give him go straight in one ear and out the other without even pausing in between.

    Sounds like you have an independent thinker there, which is a great leadership skill! ;) However, it makes for a bumpy road while he is still in the nest and has to be led by his parents. Sorry about the scare (it only took 5 year off your life, right?) but glad all was well in the end!

    Maybe we should change his name now from Houdanny to Wheredanny now? Enjoyed the post, had to chuckle even if it was on Houdannys behalf.
