His experience has not left him unscathed though.
To this day, he despises getting to airports too early. An hour and a half before our flight? No problem. Forget that the security line ropes halfway around a football field. Husby manages to use First Class security entrance without the First Class ticket. What some would call genius, others would call despicable.
He’s also very particular about boarding. It
Those are just two of his travel idiosyncrasies.
Now imagine how
In two weeks we are leaving for our vacation to Italy. Nothing is preventing me from enjoying my Roman holiday. Husby, on the other hand, is a little more than nervous about the prospect of traveling during a possible pandemic/epidemic.
Husby: I’ve been thinking about our upcoming trip…
H.I.T.: What about it?
Husby: Well, we might want to consider the possibility of cancelling…
H.I.T.: No way. Anti-viral medication is available and the only deaths have been in Mexico*.
Husby: I really think our health is more important than a trip abroad.
H.I.T.: That’s because you’ve been to Rome before. We can stop by the Vatican and pray for our health.
Husby: Like that’s going to work…
H.I.T.: It’s either that or we’ll wear surgical masks the entire time.
Husby: Think the Vatican is open on Saturdays?
Would you still be traveling abroad now that the Swine Flu is in full swing?
*At the time of this conversation, that was true. As of this morning, there is one case of death in the U.S.
