A day at an O' meet when your not orienteering is a bit of a drag, unless you are an organizer when it is just a lot of stress. I was someplace in between, not orienteering (no way I even considered going out), but just a relatively minor duty, part of the Review Panel for deal with the Team's petitions from folks who couldn't make it to the Trials.
A good discussion with the rest of the panel, general agreement on the final decision. You hope you do it right, you think you have done it right, but that doesn't mean that everyone will think the same. Just part of life.
And then off to the airport with Kissy for good company, and then an easy flight up to White Plains, and then, whoops, we sat on the taxiway for an hour and 20 minutes because the TSA folks had found a suitcase without an apparent owner, so the terminal shut down just as we were getting there. I will give credit to the AirTran pilot, he was on the intercom every 10 minutes with whatever he could find out about what was going on and what the prognosis was, and I think that made a big difference as everyone stayed pretty mellow.
Finally got off, the terminal was chaos, trying to run everyone back through security, and the access road coming in was chaos, I assume full of people either trying to leave or trying to pick up someone. Fortunately got away without further delay.
Right leg is unhappy, but no worse than yesterday, so I am slightly less bummed.... :-)
