Airport mistake.

I don’t know why I do the things I do. Wait, isn’t that in the Bible?

And I just realized that I’m not sure I know how much a pack of gum costs “these days”. So maybe I owe 1985 dude an apology.

**Update- safely in California (10:04PM CA time, 1:05AM GA time). Sorry the audio is so low on the video – just listen with your big kid ears, as I tell my students. And I’m more sorry that I didn’t sleep a wink on the plane because my decision making is still apparently hindered being that I’m still posting this video.**

    No humor can ever be better than awkward humor.

    You totally look like Katie Holmes in this video. Maybe it’s b/c you’re going to California???? Swing by the Christian Scientists building and give Maverick a shout out for us!

    My thoughts after watching:
    1-people watching probably thought you were on a video conference with your publisher or really cute boyfriend in another city.
    2-what time were you at the airport? I was there from 4-5:30.
    3-you acted on the video like it was out of character for you to do that…Please–that’s everyday annie.
    4-I like the one from the ski trip better. “Backwards, Backwardddds”

    I’m not supposed to laugh in Corporate America. But you made me. Out loud. We love Annie Downs … no matter where she is!

    I’m finally catching up with your weekend, through your blog that is since I saw you at 6am this morning.

    This is the kind of entertainment I look forward to when I’m sitting in the student center bored out of my mind! Thank you!
