butterflies

the night before christmas
the night before disneyland
the drive to a rock concert
boarding a plane to a far away place
getting off the chairlift
driving off the lot with your first car
taking the stage to accept a playwriting award
getting on your longboard at the top of a hill with nothing but gravity and gravel 
singing karaoke at your friend's bachelorette party
sitting at the table in the last round of a poker tournament....
but nothing is quite like waiting to get your baby from the airport.
24 hours and counting...
