In 2009, just over a year after Mr. Funnel Cake and I had started dating, I had to exit Switzerland and remain abroad while I applied for a work visa. Mr. Funnel Cake was sweet enough to travel with me to Ohio and spend two weeks with me and my family, but after that he had to go home while I waited for the visa to process.
When he arrived back in Switzerland, Mr. Funnel Cake found out his work was sending him to Waco, Texas in one week. So naturally I bought a plane ticket to meet him there! I mean”¦ wouldn’t you?
I seemed to have an addiction to following this man around the world, but you cannot imagine how romantic it feels to embrace him in an airport. (Or can you?)
It’s something like this.
Actually, I’ve sort of developed a thing for trains and airports now. Does anyone else find it incredibly romantic to meet your love in a train station and share another passionate kiss at last? And in the same token, saying goodbye at a train station or airport is excruciatingly heartbreaking.
While I worked on my visa process and figured out tickets to Switzerland, Mama Funnel Cake told me that eventually I would have to stop following Mr. Funnel Cake around the world and that at some point he would need to show me some commitment. Thankfully she didn’t have anything to worry about seeing as how Mr. FC proposed about a year later. I can truly say that Mr. FC has done literally everything he can to stay close to me.
This October, I am excited that Mr. Funnel Cake and I will take every flight together. I get nervous about flying when we are separated (a fear that developed only after I met Mr. FC) so I am very relieved we’ll be together the whole time.
Are you flying to your honeymoon or wedding? Will you be meeting your sweetie in the airport or are you traveling together?
