The plane hit a bird

I got up this morning a little later than I wanted to (I never sleep well in hotel beds, unless I’m staying at a Westin hotel for some reason … I guess I’m spoiled – especially if there are things on my mind, which there are more of these days). I met a client for breakfast at 6:30 a.m. in the hotel restaurant. We chatted a little longer than we should have, then he took me to the Columbus airport.

I arrived at 8:00 a.m., and was too late for my 8:30 departure flight, so, I got bumped to the 10:30 a.m. flight… no big deal I figured. I could get some work done at the airport, and I’d still get into Austin early enough to finish out a few things before the day ended.

The boarding clerk just announced over the P.A. system that our plane hit a bird on the way into Columbus, so now they’re performing an hour long maintenance check before they let us board the plane.

I hope I make it home today. That’s all I’m concerned with at this point. At least the Columbus airport has free wi-fi in the concourse.
