Just wondering

If I were to walk down the hallway and pass by the nurses station, holding my wallet and wearing only my t-shirt and underpants (my daily uniform), what would they do?

The plan would be to make it downstairs, hail a cab, ride to the airport, buy the first ticket on the earliest flight to Hawaii and then run away away away.

How far could I get with no pants and $11? I would at least settle for a margarita in the airport bar. Or even a bloody mary. Somehow that one seems more appropriate.

  1. If you could score a pillowcase or something to use as a sarong and had a credit card, you could do it. You’d still blog for us though, right?

  2. You certainly have a right to be feeling bored, pissed off, scared and sort of ready to give in. You’ve been in a very bad situation for what seems, to all of us, an unreasonable amount of time. But, it’s not time to give up or in. You can do this. And when it’s all over and the wee-ist one is here safe in your arms, you can have margaritas and bloody marys by the gallon. Twenty eight weeks is not that far away now. Breathe in, breathe out….we’re all pulling for you, praying for you and your whole family. Just hang in there a little longer.I don’t know how far you’d get with no pants, maybe further than you’d expect. Eleven dollars? Maybe the exciting burg of Buda!! So no sneaking past those nurses who would be in a big bunch of trouble if you DID manage it. You know you can do this. We know you can do it.

  4. Hmm…11 bucks could get you a cocktail and maybe a postcard of Hawaii. That’s a start. Hang in there. I know it’s hard, but one more day with you is a couple of days less in the NICU for that little bean!!

  5. I say do it – but I don’t think you’ll get through security at the airport (especially in undies). Maybe someone could bring you a virgin frozen drink and some Hawaiian music? Just a thought…

  6. I can only imagine how stir-crazy you must be. But…sit. Stay. Start reading some incredibly long book series. It will all be worth it in the end.

  7. Judging my my latest airline travels, you’d have no trouble getting through airport security in that get-up – provided you take off those hospital socks! Hang in there, Kari.

  8. Kari, do you read fantasy? I have the whole 12-book Wheel of Time series (the last book isn’t out yet though) that could keep you occupied for a week or so 🙂
