Definition of a Friend
On hold with American Airlines, I frantically text the Ima, “can I crash at your place tonight?” I needed to get to PA by Tuesday morning, but a series of unfortunate events prevented me from making my connection on Monday afternoon.
My mobile rang. It was the Ima. “Of course.”
The American Airlines representative was back on the line.
“Can you get me to Chicago today?” I inquired, “Because if you can get me to Chicago today, I can fly out first thing in the morning.”
So it was that the Ima drove a half hour to get me, gave me a comfy place to rest my keppe, and had Abba Sababa drive me back to the airport a mere seven hours later.
And there were baked goods awaiting me upon arrival.
