Rocky Mountain High

Yesterday afternoon, I flew non-stop to Denver via Southwest Airlines. I mean, well, sort of non-stop. Midland to Dallas. Get off the plane, see friends in the airport, exchange hugs, news, smiles. Get back on plane from Dallas to Oklahoma City, then on to Denver. Better than the pricy alternatives, I’ll tell you. I had friends and acquaintances all the way, so we swapped stories and opportunities. I digress. Somewhere, during some stop, I received this e-mail from my young Denver whippersnapper salesman.

Janie,

Bring your runnin’ shoes! Our first meeting tomorrow is set to kick off at 9 AM with the Sr. Operations Engineer with 123 Energy. Followed closely at 9:30 with a young Drilling Engineer with Some Oil. Then at 10:30 we are meeting with a new client, Snowy Mountain Energy at 10:30. Lunch at 11:15 with an Engineer that we are trying to hire for another state from Boondocks Energy . Maybe we can squeeze one more appointment in after lunch before I head out for my son’s B-day party…

Be safe and see you in the morning.

Isn’t he sweet? Here we go again!

Oh, yeah, girl. I will.

As soon as I get on that plane back home! :)

WHAT?! You came to Dallas and hugged someone else?! That's it Janie. I think you are cheating on me. First the couple in Mansfield and now her! What will it take to have you all to myself?

Just wondering who you will be hugging when you come back thru... I am probably busy that day, so don't try to beg me. ok you can try....

Janie said...

Jill - don't fret, chica. I'm not two-timing you, girlfriend. The friend I was hugging was...a guy. Your position in my life is still very secure, you've not lost your most-treasured status.

And if you can get your person through the damn security without a boarding pass, you can have a hug, too!

That Man I Love and I can't wait to meet you and yours! I have a feeling we're going to stir up some stuff together!

Ouch. Sorry about your fall. From grace? Hardly. From gracefulness? Okay, maybe... but only for that moment I'm sure.
