Someday, before my time in NYC comes to an end, I would like to take the entire Laguardia airport air traffic control team out for drinks.
If anyone reading this is part of this air traffic control team, or knows how I can get in touch with them, please contact me immediately.
They have proven to be one of the most consistent group of people I have had the pleasure to encounter. Not once, in the now 18 weeks I have been traveling back and forth to NYC, have I had an entire trip go completely as scheduled. Not one. And every single one of these has been due to the air traffic control in NYC.
Bravo team! Well done! Consistency really is something to be proud of in this day and age!
Not that I am in a great hurry to get back to the wonderful heat and humidity that has decided to make, well everywhere but Colorado, apparently, it’s home for this summer.
I love the heat. I do. I would choose to live somewhere hot over somewhere with snow and cold any day. I may not love the humidity quite as much.
As a girl, of course I do not sweat. I glisten. Or, on a really warm day, I may even perspire a little. But sweat? Never.
Last Thursday, with a “real feel” temp of 105 degrees and 75% humidity, and a 12 block walk to my meeting, I was glistening like an angel dropped straight from heaven.
An angel that was dropped straight into the ocean and was still dripping wet.
(Yes, I realize, now, that a 12 block walk in those conditions may not have been the wisest of choices)
I realized, about 3 blocks into that walk, that the beautiful jade green, silk t-shirt that looked so great when I put it on that morning, may not have the wicking capabilities required in 75% humidity.
And that the time I took doing my hair and make up that morning, would really have been better spent sleeping, since looking like I just climbed out of a pool is only a slight improvement on looking like I just climbed out of bed.
Luckily this was not a first impressions kind of meeting.
Needless to say, I quite enjoyed my weekend in Colorado, with a “real feel” temp of 85 and 25% humidity.
I am a quick learner, however. I do not plan on making a 12 block walk tomorrow with a predicted “real feel” of 104 and 76% humidity.
That is, if my friends at Laguardia air traffic control ever decide to let us arrive in NYC in the first place.
Just think how good those cold beers will taste when we all meet for drinks.
