We're wrapping up our adventure at BEA 2015. The day was jam packed with fun, and we're looking forward to reading the new stories we picked up.
It was fascinating to visit the exhibitor booths. They each showcased their own style, and there were plenty of diverse stories to satisfy any reader's appetite. We were impressed by the professional atmosphere and enjoyed listening to everyone taking about books
(of course we missed our 6PM train, as usual).
BUT, we had a back-up plan! No problem. The only hitch, we have to switch trains in South Norwalk. Easy.
Actually, not so much. It went something like this...
Stephanie: "Excuse me, sir. Would you please direct us to the train heading for Danbury?"
Train Conductor #1: "Why yes, Miss, you just get off in South Norwalk, wait ten minutes, and then get on the next train."
Fabulous. Twelve minutes later, voila! The train pulls up. We get on, smiling and chatting about our day.
Jess: "Bridgeport, Stephanie?"
Stephanie: "I'm pretty sure we're on the wrong train."
Jess: "Crap. What do we do now?"
Stephanie: "We should ask again."
A blustering flurry in a conductor's cap blew by our seats, and we grabbed his attention. Edward was his name, and he wasn't very happy with the passengers on the evening train home from NYC.
As politely as possible, we explained that they told us to get on this train.
Edward: "They, they, they," he said, exasperated- like how could we have made this terrible mistake?
We told him that he was our only hope, that we believed in him. He had to help us get home.
Taking pity on our tired souls, he shook his head and told us the truth about our dilemma...
Edward: "Get off here and get on the next train on the other side of the tracks- run, you only have a minute. Go back to South Norwalk, wait one hour, and then get on the train for Danbury. Do you need me to write it down?"
Jess & Stephanie: "Yes, yes we do, Edward. Thank you."
Edward saved the day, that's for sure. Four hours from NYC to Bethel, CT. Needless to say, we'll be brushing up on our train traveling skills!
