I was somewhat dismayed, as this was the first trip I'd ever planned for myself by myself. But Sam kept me company while I waited for news of my flight. And he even kept my mind off my predicament by whooping me at a game of Cribbage! :-) When the time came for him to board his plane, I was still stuck in the airport with no end in sight. He offered to stay with me until I could get onto a plane, taking his own chances with future flights, but I convinced him that I would be fine and shooed him onto his plane.
Eventually, I learned that my flight was cancelled until the next day. It would almost have been faster to drive back with Choi, but then I wouldn't have had those hours with my "other brother." I'd call that time well spent!
