monday june 1

today i went to the toronto airport to meet my brother, who was arriving home after a year-long exchange in france. my mother had prepared a large banner that read "welcome home jordan," but holding it up became an issue; there would be little to no reaction time between when he would round the corner into our 'arrivals' area and when he'd see us, but there was also no way of knowing when exactly that would happen. this meant potentially holding the sign up to no one for 20 minutes, or, conversely, holding it down at our sides when he arrived. we ultimately elected for the latter, quickly jerking it upward when he eventually did show up.
