So here it is...after being searched and scanned and swabbed before boarding the plane in Midland, TX...after the short one hour plane ride that I slept through to Houston...after realizing that I still had 4 hours before my next plane to San Jose...I decided to get a coffee.
Half awake, I scan the menu (as I always do) then order a plain ol cup of Jo (as I do), then glance down at the counter to discover a 5, wait, no, a 50 dollar bill!!!! A sudden moment of panic....do I pick it up?..keep it?...turn it in? Will it give me bad karma for my trip if I take it? OH Hell. I picked it up of course, then decided to hang around for a while and see if anyone came a lookin. Nada.
Maybe it was just the beginning of a beautiful journey...I did have my buena suerte shirt on, maybe it was a test, or maybe it was that 50 dollar bill that my mom made me slip into a slot machine in the vegas airport (gone in 2 minutes)...now reunited. Yeah, thats it. So I decided to do what I feel is 50 dollars worth of volunteering in Costa.
Of course I went right upstairs and spent it all on beer and burgers with my new buddy Sean.
Sean is a friend of a friends neighbor...what is it...7 degrees or something like that? I met him on my road trip to Portland and found out that he was Costa bound as well. Anyways...lets hope this one works out. Always fun trying to basically live with someone you don't know..but then you never would know would ya?
And we're off...
