There was one unexpected add-on to my weekend visit to New Jersey. I was supposed to connect in Atlanta, but weather delays out of Newark resulted in me missing the last flight out to Shreveport.
Now, if you know my family at all then you know we are prone to travel mishaps. Lost luggage, cancellations, overbooked hotels, car wrecks, airplane mechanical malfunctions, tsunami warnings, earthquakes, missed flights, missing persons, and extreme emotional meltdowns are all par for the course.
So my point is that I should have known this was coming.
I had no choice but to stay the night in Atlanta and the next morning I even had plenty of time to tour the World of Coca-Cola, Atlanta’s claim to fame.
Clearly this travel mishap epitomized the classic saying, “When life gives you lemons, have a coke.” Or something like that.
