Oranges & Cookies

Sunday, February 28, 2010 5:06 AM by Point Park Student Activities

Our adventure began at 3am in Alumni Park. There 11 sleepy eyed students met me to sign the last round of forms for our trip to New Orleans. The shuttle ushered us on a traffic free parkway to an nearly empty airport. Checking into United Airways provided us with our first surprise as we weren't ready for United's check baggage fee. We made it through security with out a hiccup. Our only scare was when the TSA agent told me that I was going to have to leave my chocolate chip cookies with security. At that point I had three options leave the cookies, run, or eat as many as humanly possible. Before I could explain to her the necessity of my wife's famous cookies, she smiled and said 'I couldn't eat all those cookies by myself.' Crisis adverted. Now we're waiting at the gate for our flight as 7 out of 12 people who didn't sleep try to stay awake until we may get on the plane. I think we just lost three. Oranges complemented the cookies as our midnight snack. Someone just ate an orange peel as delirium sets in. We have a 2 hour layover in Windy City until we arrive in the Big Easy at 12pm. We'll probably hang out at the camp ground for a couple of hours before we make the hour long trip back to New Orleans to go to Mulate's for a night of dinner and dancing. And so it begins...
