traumatized by tacamo

Did I mention that today Tony is going to the city of Dakar, which is the capitol of Senegal, which is on the continent of Africa?

No? Well, that's probably because I've been in denial. I get a little verklempt when I think of him leaving on a trip for work. I imagine him calling me on Friday when he is scheduled to return saying, "The plane is broken, so we're going to be here a few more days." Then, after those few days have passed, him calling again saying, "We have to take charge and move out to do a weather divert. I don't know where we're going or when we'll get home." Then, after a large thunder storm and a tornado, followed by some ice and snow which have closed down all the roads leaving me stuck in my house cold and dark and alone trying to keep Graham entertained and content and warm, him calling while relaxing on a tropical island saying, "You don't have electricity? Sorry. Um, well, it looks like I'm going to have to jump on another trip to cover for someone, so I won't be home for another month or so."

For those who don't know, TACAMO is the name of the Naval community in Oklahoma where Tony worked and their schedule was often a bit, well, a bit, um, well, um, unpredictable. So, I was a little traumatized from that experience and now that he's left for a work trip with his new job here in Italy, I'm experiencing some flashbacks.

You'll have to excuse me for a minute while I go fan myself and have a drink.

I'll give you a topic: New Jersey. Discuss.
