Flight 146 from Zurich to New Delhi is late taking off, later than it's been over the past week. Normally I wouldn't care whether the A333 is a few minutes late, but this one carries my daughter freshly off her college degree, towards New Delhi for a month of backpacking through India with her boyfriend.
Like many parents, I sometimes feel overworked and under appreciated. A golden opportunity presented itself today, and I did not hesitate to take action. My daughter Mabel asked for my help. She was leaving for a rehearsal and needed to respond to a couple of time sensitive emails. When she handed me her laptop she handed me the means of reparation.
