Sorry bloggies, I have been a bit out of pocket because I am now staffed! Gone are the days of vacation whenever I wanted. Of course, with that kind of freedom, also came the risk of being laid off. Give and take I suppose.
This morning I had to catch a 5:40am flight. That means that I needed to be at the airport by 5:00. Well, honestly I would not have HAD to get there that early, but I wanted to because I was flying a new airline that I wasn’t used to and wanted to make sure that I had their system down. Because it was so early, I did something that I haven’t done for the first time in order to squeeze every last bit of sleep I could out of the night. I didn’t take a shower in the morning. Honestly, it wasn’t all that bad. I don’t feel all that particularly dirty, so I must not be, right?! I assume those flies buzzing around me must be flying around the old trash that is next to me.
Also this morning I saw something that I wasn’t sure that I would ever see. Once the drink service started at 6:00am, the guy in the row ahead of me ordered a Heineken! Not even a normal beer or a bloody mary, a Heineken!!!! I sorta felt bad for the guy…. Like, I should have struck up a conversation with him or something and ask if he was lonely...needed some friends....something. Maybe introduce him to a friendly list I know that has 12 “steps” to complete before you are done. Maybe he could get started with #1 and admit that ordering a BEER at 6:00am was as odd as the look that the flight attendant gave him?
So, yes, it is 5:00 somewhere, 5:00am.
