So, the alarm rings, my daughter and I get in the car and start driving to the airport. While I'm unpacking my suitcase from the trunk at the airport, I realize I don't have a coat.
I don't have a coat and I'm flying to Boston and it is December.
As I stand by the curb, stunned, Yvette panics and says, "I'll drive home and get it!" But, I'm looking at the time and my plane is taking off in a little over an hour, and there is no possible way she can drive home, retrieve my coat, and return to the airport before I board the plane.
