When your husband texts you from the plane saying YOU’LL NEVER BELIEVE WHO I GOT TO SIT NEXT TO ON THE PLANE!!!!
But you haven’t received the photo yet.
So you sit and wait and think. OH MY GOD – WHO IS IT GOING TO BE? What famous person is travelling from Halifax to Toronto on January 26th that Craig knows I would be incredibly excited about?? Jim Cuddy? Drake? Meghan Markle? Prince HARRY!! (Because of course he flies commercial coach) OMG OMG could it be Bon Jovi??? It HAS to be someone INCREDIBLE AND IMPORTANT AND AMAZING for my easy going husband to be so excited and text me about it.
And finally the picture comes in.
And sitting there – with two huge goofy selfie grins on their faces – is my husband and my sons Oncologist.
And I start to laugh and cry at the same time … and I can’t stop doing either.
Because I couldn’t have been more right – about the incredible, important and amazing person part.
