Book 'em, Danno

So I booked my first trip on The Ride.  They were supposed to pick me up at my office after work tomorrow, take me to the mall, and then bring me home an hour later.  But we had a pretty big snowstorm in the Boston area last night and school is canceled for a second day tomorrow which, of course, means I'm not going into the office.

I have to say, I'm kind of bummed. I haven't been to the mall on my own for more than 2 years now. I would have been racing around for an hour to find a dress for Ruby to wear to a Bat Mizvah party on Saturday, which is not exactly fun shopping, but still!  She ended up borrowing a really pretty dress today so there is no pressing need for the mall trip.  But it's booked. And I want to go. 

Also, because I was getting picked up at work, I warned my boss about it since I didn't want him to get all pitying and ruin the way we joke about my visual impairment. He teased that he was charging the camcorder so he could videotape me climbing on board for the first time.  I'm pretty sure it was an idle threat but I think it would be kind of cool to have visual documentation for the blog.

With or without video, I was really hoping to have a funny story or two to share after the big adventure on my chauffeur-driven short bus. Do I call and cancel or just rearrange and go to the mall after their dad picks them up for dinner?
