I'm sitting in the dispatch office stewing because I'm on PM rail. The train is coming in at 8:45 pm. I have a highway tour tomorrow. I'm exhausted. I'm not supposed to be working. Everyone I've told gets the same incredulous look on their faces. At least I'm being validated, right? That won't do me much good at 5:30 tomorrow morning, though.
However, I'm trying to think of good things to offset my bad mood. So, I have a story to share with all of you. So, I've been working with a lot of cute drivers this summer. One cute driver and I have had some mutual interest this summer. So, this driver was our pilot car driver on my last highway run. So, on our night in Tok, this driver and I may or may not have spent some "quality time" together after dinner. The next day on our tour, the members of the tour group were teasing the tour director about how cute the pilot car driver was. She deflected the comments off on me. So, then they all started teasing me. Well, what could I say after the quality time the pilot car driver and I had been spending over the summer? So I just grinned. So then of course the teasing got even worse! So, when we got to Eagle, we arranged for a great goodbye in front of the guests. He was being radioed by the drivers waiting for him to take them from Eagle to Chicken. He hopped on my coach to respond, then grabbed me by the waist and kissed me in front of the guests. The coach erupted with laughter and cheers. They were SO excited! There is no way I will be able to top that. Boy, it was fun.
I hope you enjoyed my confession. :-)
