Friday the 13th {Egan Style}

Howie was in Canada last week.
That is NOT in my time zone.
Or zip code.
Speaking of zip code......what is with Canada's zip code? Trippy.
He planned to come home for the weekend.
Before he had to go back again.
To Canada.(and their weird zip code)

He missed his flight out of Toronto.
THEN when he finally got to Detroit they couldn't move the whatchamacallit that lets you off the plane what ever it's official name is. It took 25 minutes to deplane.
So when he tried to get on Flight 13-somethingorother in Gate 13 the plane was gone.
So he didn't get home until Saturday at 5:00 p.m.
Only to turn around and fly BACK to Canada at 11:00 on Sunday!
Oh, and it was my weekend in the ER
So for future reference:
Do NOT fly with an Egan if:
-It's Friday the 13th
-From Gate 13
-On flight 13-somethingorother.
You have been warned.

Wow, that does not sound fun. I'm sure Rachael Ray was at fault.

Barbaloot said...

Yikes---and here I was thinking Friday the 13th was just a myth.

Cherie said...

My husband flew home from England on Friday the 13th - I'm sure glad he wasn't on your husband's flight!!
Hope you guys made the most of your "hours" together!

P.s. I'm coming for you Egan. Hee Hee

T said...

I'll keep that in mind... as a matter of fact, I'll just try to avoid all flights on the 13th of any month at all.

Doran & Jody said...

Got it! Thanks for the info!

One Cluttered Brain said...

Yikes! Am i the 13th comment?
U R back!!!
i've missed you!

LKP said...

lol. man that all sucks. i don't get it. 13's usually lucky...atleast for ME! =)

Kirsten said...

On the bright side...he DID make it home! :)

You remember Leilani Kershaw? Well, she got re-married this last Friday. I'll post pics on my blog later. (I was her photographer) So it was a good day for SOMEONE!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Oh my what a story! I don't think there is anyway in h that I would fly on the 13th on Gate 13 so I am glad he missed it. hahaha
Thats too bad you had to work too. Darn it life is hard like that when you want to be with your honey.
I hope he gets home soon and you are off.
Take care and behave in the ER

Julie Harward said...

OK, so this seals it...friday the 13th is just plain bad luck! What an awful weekend! Hope your week is better! :D

wendy said...

hey, I am a little sensitive about our zip codes J/K
our is T0M 0W0


I would have never ever ever flown on friday the 13 from gate 13

well actually I might have, If I can stay in a hotel with bedbugs I imagine I could do that.

I totally believe in the KARMA of Friday the 13th.

we were on the road in B.C. on friday 13th and had a fan belt go out on the truck. ....luckily we had another one to replace it with. You can never have too many fan belts.

wendy said...

p.s. I went back and read some of your posts.
don't you have to have a special license to drive an emergency vehicle?? like a truckers license?? (breaker, breaker)

and I do crack
I have a crack.....doesn't that make US twins.

tammy said...

I think we should just eliminate the number 13 from our lives permanently.

Anonymous said...

I almost hate to comment because you did have 13 comments until I came along!!!!!! That sounds like a miserable weekend flight.

Mikki said...

Good to know.
Hope he returns home soon. Must be hard, having him travel so much.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Duly noted!! :D

My households left port (FINALLY!!!) on Friday the 13th. Oy.

Yvonne said...

Those postal codes are weird aren't they ; )

Glad he got home safe and sound, even if it was a bit of a pain along the way. Sorry your time together was so much shorter than planned--hope you made the most of it.

Connie said...

It should have been a warning from the very start!
Glad that day's behind you...until next May!

Nezzy said...

13th, 13 and 13...what are the odds! This chick always call Friday the 13th my lucky day! It's all in the prospective baby! Hope you totally enjoyed what little time you had together.

God bless ya and have a terrific day!!!

Saimi said...

Between the trippy zip code and the day the poor fella didn't stand a chance, sheez.

Just glad he's home safe on American soil!

JoAnn said...

Ummm, we just skip the 13th. Pretend it's not there. "Oh yeah, honey, it's August 12 1/2 th"

I would recommend that for you. And if -- for some crazy reason -- your store purchases (cuz I know how you love to shop) end up being like $13? You just run, screaming with your hands waving in the air, outta the store. Everyone understands.

Lisa said...

I can't even think of how to fix this for, did you get to drink a frosty beverage over ice any of those 3's? If not, there's no way to resurrect it. It just is what it is. Evil. Bad. Non-refreshing. Sorry.

M-Cat said...

I am terrified of the number 13. I'm sure there is legitimate named phobia for it, but I am with Tammy, can we just do away with it all together?

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

OKay... that sucked big time!

I thought my luck was bad... but I'm pretty sure that tops me!


Braden said...

Thanks for the warning! I will not fly with an Egan under any of those circumstances!

Heather said...

That is crazy! But I guess that is what you get with the number 13! That stinks you didn't get to see him for very long!

I love that you are a nurse!!! My sister just became one and it was a long road!

Your blog is so fun!! You are funny! I love it! I look forward to meeting you at the blog meet!!!

Kazzy said...

Yipes! That, and being way up high in the sky, are two of the reason flying is not my favorite thing to do.

Valerie said...

Crazy! and sad. Sorry you didn't get to see each other longer.

Krista said...

Oh my Hannah, that is funny! My 13th was pretty non-eventful. We did wear black to work.

Laura said...

Wow, that's a whole lot of bad luck! I know I shouldn't be, but I'm paranoid of Friday the 13th too. It always makes me uneasy.

Hope hubby gets back to you and your 'normal' time zone soon! :)

Josh said...

Beth at Aunties said...

Poor guy... I am glad he came home to you!
Well for a minute.
Mr travels all the time and it is draining when everything goes right. I agree with Cherie, we need to make the most of the time we get to spend with these hunks!

Life is good! said...

i had a son on friday the 13th, 24 years ago. he has been my easiest child. go figure! have a great one!

Just Breathe said...

Too many thirteens! I don't know how they do it. Mine travels all the time and I would get so frustrated.

Laura Lynn said...

I will just avoid any type of travel on a Friday the 13th from now on!
I'm glad nothing worse happened!

Queenie Jeannie said...

So.....everything work out ok???
