Jointed leg part two:
more hurrying and waiting —
hardly the high life.

We landed in Denver just in time to board the flight to St. Louis before they closed the boarding ramp. It was a miracle we made it. Then there was another forty minutes’ delay for de-icing during which the daughter’s diaper leaked and this whole flying deal seems like a huge hassle of its own – so the bus and train take too long, and flying is a huge rip – road trips are risky; sometimes it seems like you just can’t win.
