Close call…

Okay I’m a couple behind on the daily prompt…so today will have two, so here’s the first one…Tell us about a bullet you’re glad you dodged — when something awful almost happened, but didn’t.

When I went on the trip to New York for my 35th birthday I had an amazing time…which I’ve written about a couple of times.

However, what I haven’t written was what happened when I landed back in Australia.  After I landed in Sydney and made it through customs and took the train from the international terminal to the domestic terminal I finally sat down and texted my family to let them know that I had landed back in the country.

Then things took an interesting turn…I was sitting down waiting to check in for the next flight, which was a few hours later so I had my luggage and I had a coffee and some breakfast as it was about 6:30am and my mobile rings and it was my dad who asked if I was okay.  I had no idea what he was talking about.

Turns out that Osama Bin Laden had been killed right before I had boarded the plane in Los Angeles…I had texted my family right before boarding.  We weren’t told a single thing on the flight, however it made me think that it was interesting that right before I boarded the flight that all military personnel in the airport were called to a service counter.

In a way I’m so glad that nothing was said while we were on the flight…it would have made the flight a lot different.
