As I was sitting in the SFO terminal waiting for the call to board I noticed some movement in my bag.  What could it be?  I opened the zipper and this is what i saw - The Wise Men - I was stunned.  As you may recall they have been residing in my guest bathroom on the window shelf.  
The following is our conversation:
Me:  How did you get here?  What are you doing?
Them:  Well, you see, we saw you packing and heard you say you were going to Ireland and we realized that this was our chance to see the land of our birth.
Me:  But you are from the Far East!
Them:  That's not what it says on our bottoms - it says "Made in Ireland"...
Me:  Good Grief.  Why didn't you make yourselves known yesterday?
Them:  You seemed rather upset with missing your flight to Dublin and we didn't want to incur your wrath.
Me:  Fair enough.  Well I'm kind of glad that you are here.  We'll talk on the plane.
Them:  Really?  Can we order a meal?
Me:  Don't push it!

Oh Roberta... I am just catching up.

How very frustrating. I do hope that by now you are safely in Ireland. Peace be with you on the remainder of your journey my friend.
