On the road again-again…

What is the most exciting event you have every witnessed?

While you’re reading this, I’m in my little dark cherry Scion heading back to Arkansas from a ferociously fun weekend. Think about me—bedraggled, hung over, squinting at the road—and be sure to post your final entry in the contest today!

    When my son graduated Navy boot camp, we all flew back to watch the ceremony. So much pride and love had me bawling like a baby. Definitely a magic memory day.

    Hmmmm… most exciting thing… I’ve lived a pretty boring life, but…

    I went to London for my post college graduation present from my parents. While there, I happened upon a Mozart concert in one of the old cathedrals. Awesome concert.

    I live a very boring life. I can’t think of anything that I would call a ‘Steller Event’ worth mentioning.

    I think I have to choose when we went to a tiny little shrine in Poland. There among all the glamour and finery lay a simple bread rosary. A Polish Catholic concentration camp survivor made it to pray on using many of his daily rations. That was a humbling experience to see how someone’s faith could pull him through the darkest times.

    When my lovely niece Rawan was born. That was an exceptional day. I fell in love with that small kid for life. She just had me in the palm of her perfect little hand.

    The most exciting thing???hmmmm!! Nothing comes to mind..I tend to find the little things exciting…the birth of my two sons. 13 and 8…going to a soccer game that one of them is playing in and them scoring a goal..the look on their face is priceless…the look on their faces when their dad comes home from a deployment and they see him…

    Almost every year my daughter and I go to a Belly Dance festival. Its so much fun to watch all the dancers. (I hate to say this there are a lot more bad dancers then good ones, but at least they have the guts to get up on the stage).

    I don’t know about exciting, but the most bizarre event happened in May. A friend and I went to my daughter’s off-campus apt. for mom’s weekend at her college. Early Sunday morning the police and two hearses pull up to the apartment bldg. across the drive and take two bodies out. Turned out to be two students, boyfriend/girlfriend who had overdosed in the night while his mother, also there for mom’s weekend, slept in the next room. She found them in the morning. Totally creepy – and heartbreaking for their families.

    I helped my friend deliver her mama dog’s puppies. Had never seen this before and it was truly an experience.

    If “horribly, horribly terrible” counts as exciting, I’d say it was when I was watching TV in my boss’s office on September 11th, 2001 — and saw the second plane crash into the 2nd tower of the WTC. If I hadn’t been in his office for a meeting, I wouldn’t have seen it happen “live”. It’s a memory I could live without. :(

    For something GOOD & exciting, it would be the birth of my son!

    Some truly awesome events!!

    For me, the most exciting thing that ever happened was me arriving in Saudi Arabiaduring the Gulf War, still standing on the tarmac after climbing out of C-5, and hearing the air raid siren go off. All the new arrivals hoofed it to the sandbag shelter at the end of the runway and masked. Then we sat while nothing happened. I knew I’d arrived.
