Where Do You Get Your Air?

Rockies Spring Training. This year in Phoenix. We arrived in today at about 3 pm (hence the half). Dan, Gunnar and Brody went to the Green Mountain High School game. I don't know why since we don't watch them when they are at home. Nonetheless, it gave Aidan and I a chance to go have some food and talk.

There happened to be an ENORMOUS Walmart near. I know you think ALL Walmarts are huge, so you get the comparison!

We stopped in the music section. I found "Greatest Hits of Air Supply!. OMG! I'm seventeen years old. I'm graduating from high school in New York. My mother flies out from Boulder. It's not lost on me that she wants to hang out with her friend, Margo, and my graduation is a convenient excuse.

So, we walked out of the ceremony straight into someone's wedding reception. I don't know who it was. The next day we hopped a bus to NYC for our flight back to Colorado. I'm not entirely sure who thought it was a good idea to take a bus to NYC, rather than just fly from Binghamton. All I know is that we missed our flight and had to sit in the airport for 4 hours.

\My mother would never show up at an event witnessed by other people without a present. So she gave me a Sony Walkman. Great. The problem was when I asked her to buy a tape to play in it.

Given the audience, she finally agreed. Guess what I bought? Air Supply :)

I listened to Air Supply sitting on the floor of JFK, and then on the plane. All the while I knew that I was leaving my friends - and my life. When the plane landed I was in Colorado.

And nothing was ever the same.
