Call the FAA!

So last night before bed, Caroline announced to us that we shouldn't come and check on her for awhile as she would not be there and we'd be wasting our time.

Calvin: Why? Where are you going to be?

Caroline: I'm going TDY.

Me: TDY? TDY to where?

Caroline: To Mount Olympos. I'm supervising a project for the Gods. They want to know how long it takes a human to fly from Stuttgart, Germany to Mount Olympos.

Me: that so?

Caroline: Yes, and I'm packing right now.

Calvin: What are you taking?

Caroline: My running shoes, my memo pad to write down notes about my trip, and Violet.

So Calvin and I wished her a safe trip and asked her to let us know how it all went when she got back.

Ok, she said, no problem. We kissed her and sent her off for her journey.

Ten minutes later, as Calvin and I were watching a movie (this is, of course, after we got through giggling over her imagination) she stomped back in.

"Mommy! Daddy! My flight is delayed. We can't take off yet because we've forgotten something essential."

Calvin and I in unison, "Essential?"

"Yep, we need Juicy Juice. Quick! Got some?"
