Kelly and I are going to Chicago later this month, and instead of driving, like we have the last 2 times, and instead of flying, we are going to take the train.
I’m very excited, but a little nervous. I was thinking, and remembered that I have taken a real train trip before. It was when I was 9. And I remember this because my family went to Kansas City on the train, and we went on Abby’s 1st birthday. So I don’t remember too much about that whole trip.
Now, usually in a situation like this, I would like to fly. Especially when I was Ding!-ed this morning with $90 round trip fares to Chicago from St. Louis. But then I decided that I really would rather take the train this time, for the experience. So it is going to be different, but hopefully it will be fun.
And hopefully it won’t be 10 hours late, smell like a barn, and be full of perverts.
