t minus one hour and twenty-one minutes until my dad and brothers’ flight lands. i haven’t seen them in two weeks, as they’ve been backpacking in New Mexico. cannot wait to see them and hear all about their trip. and my mom is surprising them, by picking them up at the airport. can’t wait til they get home.
Charles Dickens, Great Expecations
