The drive to Columbus was uneventful this morning, though there was some snow. I discovered hoodies aren't and ideal apparel for flying since they needed to pat down my hood. Only they couldn't get a female TSA person to do it, so I had to pat myself down. I didn't find anything untoward in my hoodie.
The flight was also uneventful. I skipped lunch since the food choices were high in points, and I wanted to save my WeightWatchers points for supper. (Besides, I wasn't hungry at the time). The only eventful part of the trip was the long wait for my bag to appear. Southwest is free for checked bags, but they take a long time with 'em at Midway.
Judi met me at the train station (though I came out the wrong entrance and was across the street from her - whoops!) and we walked back to the apartment. The day was sunny and chilly - a forecast for the rest of my stay, I believe.
We vegged for a bit and chatted and Patty got all excited cuz hey, another person! Eventually, we went across the way to The Little Branch Cafe for supper. Well, lunch & supper for me. Lentil soup with goat cheese to start, followed by a Monte Cristo sandwich (basically a ham & turkey club on French toast - ish.) Judi furthered the evil by showing me the gelato choices. I picked pistaccio (with an ugly green dye-job) and chocolate. Very yummy.
On the way back, we stopped at the game room at her complex and played 3 games of pool. Judi won the first two and I lost the last game twice, followed by Judi losing it once, and then me scratching on the 8 ball to lose it for sure. If'n you don't know how it's possible to lose the same pool game 3 times, you've never played pool with me. :)
Glad to be visiting Judi again. Should be a fun time. Alas, only a small overlap with elsaf this trip, but at least there will be some overlap!
