Friendship, a Trip to Austin & Joe, The Rockstar of Stupendous Awesomeness
My dear friend Meredith’s husband, Joe will take the prize for being a Rockstar of Stupendous Awesomeness.
You know what he did? He flew 2 of her close friends (of which I am one!), along with herself to Texas, where 2 other close friends live. Yes. For her 40th birthday.
Let me just say that again: he came up with the idea to have this tear-jerking, soul-satisfying, happy-making weekend and flew Mere along with Heather and myself to Texas, where Yolanda and Abbie are.
Joe: Rockstar of Stupendous Awesomeness.
How do you get better than that? It’s just not possible. It can’t get better than that. It’s mind blowing not only in generosity (- they are not rich), it’s mind blowing in the thought.
Mack and I boarded the flight to Austin. It had been a long time since I had flown anywhere and I had forgotten about some things (- like to ask for an upgrade if seats became available in business class or bulk head! *facepalm*). But overall, I was really pleasantly surprised by how polite, friendly and kind everyone was with us (and by “everyone” I’m really talking about airport security and airline personnel. And the people in the seats around us).
