Monday Morning Stories With Mookie - Episode 122

The Time Mookie Dreaded A Trip to Pennsylvania

As I type this, I am sitting in the airport awaiting my flight to Philadelphia, PA. From there I am going to a small town in PA that no one from where I live has even probably heard of. I am going on this trip for work, and I am going to be honest here....I don't want to go.

The problem is not so much that I'm going for work, but for the fact the place I am going is going to be EFFING BORING. I won't even be in Philly so I can't go see the Liberty Bell, visit The Gang from "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia," or even go visit the playground where the Fresh Prince spent most of his days before going to Bel Air. That last one is probably the biggest tragedy.

So instead of walking around and seeing things, I will probably spend my evenings working in my hotel room. Thrillsville. Someone in my office was like "Cool, I wish I could go. Getting away from the wife and kids is always nice." Yeah not really. I like my wife and kids. Leaving my family to do something not fun isn't my idea of a good time.

The lone bright spot will probably be watching people in the airport. I've only been here 15 minutes and have been laughing at stuff in my head. There is a kid sitting near me right now that has a huge picture of "Macho Man" Randy Savage with the words "OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHH YEEEAAAH" on it. It's an awesome shirt. Across the aisle from me is some dude griping at his wife about their tablet battery being dead. "This thing is dead. I can't even look at Facebook." "I don't know why, I just charged it yesterday." "Well it's DEAD Jenn. I'm not stupid." Its funny when other people bicker. In her defense, I'll bet he's stupid. Plus I always enjoy looking at people and wondering who I will be sitting next to. Will it be yoga pants lady or the couple with the crying kid? How about muscle shirt guy with hairy arms? I hope it's that guy.

Well that's about it. I'm going to board this heap of scrap metal in a few minutes and begin my journey. I'm hoping some fun will be had along the way, although for some reason I'm not terribly optimistic about it (big shock). Then again maybe I'll make my own fun and see where that lands me. Heh heh.
Either way I'm sure you'll hear about it someday.

Have a good one.
