That stingy sensation in your eyes when you've only gotten three and a half hours sleep because you had to wake up to drive your mother and sister to the airport so they can finally go home after having their flight cancelled yesterday due to mechanical problems.
Upside: I dug out an old guitar from storage last night and Kristin restrung it and we discovered it sounds great. (Marx, if you're reading this I bought this guitar from you for $25 back in 1996 and you said you'd give me my money back if I ever 1. wrote a song, and 2. performed it in front of an audience. Start saving your money, Marcus, because JC's coming for you (with a six string on his back).)
Upside #2: While driving to pick up last night's dinner, Lynette and I decided to make Kristin (aka: Auntie K) James' Godmother. It was a no brainer after witnessing how those two connected this week. The announcement was made over lo mein and rice noodles. Tears were shed.
None of this would have happened if Friday's plane hadn't malfunctioned. Just sayin.
