I write today from my parents' house -- again. Mrs. Geek and I were supposed to depart for home last evening, but were thwarted by a perfect storm of circumstances (thunderstorms, a "work stoppage" by airline pilots, and a major weekend sporting event) that caused the cancellation of our plane flight. Those circumstances continue to haunt us as my parents must now drive us to an airport three hours away to try to get on a flight that will connect us to the plane that will get us home. Between the two trips to the airport 90 minutes away yesterday (one to drop us off, one to pick us up four hours later), and the six hour round trip today, I don't deserve my parents. Or if I do, I'm going to be doing this for my own grown children someday.
