What a day this has been! Worked the first leg, an early morning departure from San Francisco to Chicago. Once off the plane, I decided to grab a bite, and enjoy some peace and quiet (along with a cup of Starbucks) before the Omaha flight.
Then it was off to the races! Well not really. It was only a short walk to gate C-27 for the Omaha departure. Okay, it wasn’t a walk at all since I was already at the gate. Got carried away. Hmmm, maybe I should have had the decaf at dinner.
Anyway, since Chip is my ‘significant other’, he enjoys the same travel perks offered to all airline employees. The ‘Chipster’ also enjoys a great steak dinner! So, we decided he’d hop on a plane, joining me on this Omaha layover. In a conversation earlier today, Chip told me to expect a “surprise” when I met up with him at the Omaha Hilton. And boy, was I ever! Surprised I mean. The boy had shaved his head bald! All I can say is, the hair cannot grow back soon enough for me! Of course I’m going along with it, but I cannot help but think of a Caesar salad every time I look at him. Not because he looks like Caesar, but because he looks exactly like a wooden pepper grinder mill. “Cracked pepper on your salad Ma’am?”
Once settle into our hotel, we were both hungry and looking forward to a night out on the town. Our special evening began with a carriage ride through the “Old Market” section of the city, and enjoying a delicious dinner at Spencer’s Steaks & Chops. After dinner, we strolled back to the hotel in time for Chip to watch his favorite WWF wrestling program, before calling it a night.
