Leaving Seattle

Okay, one more post about Seattle then I'll shut up.

Lorraine took me to the airport, we said our good-byes, hugging really hard.

Then, I went to check in. I noticed that I was placed in a middle seat toward the back of the airplane which is just about the worst place one could be for a lengthy flight.


So, I checked in and settled down with a book. There was about an hour before my flight so I decided to get one last cup of really good coffee. It's Seattle, you know.
When in Rome, and all that. . .

I bought a small latte. And it was the absolute worst cup of coffee I've ever had. It was as though they'd melted a brown crayon in hot water. And topped it with a melted white crayon.

It went down the sink in the men's room.


Then, soon before the flight took off, I asked the attendant if there were any aisle or window seats.

Bingo. An aisle seat near the front.

It was a good thing I didn't have any coffee because I slept most of the way back.

About an hour outside of Chicago, we hit some turbulence which woke me up. After things settled down, I heard the little kid behind me ask his mom:

"Was that 'extreme' turbulence?"

"Yes, honey, it was."

I really wanted to turn around and tell him that it was in no way "extreme" turbulence.

That kid's in for a rude awakening if he ever flies to Texas during a thunderstorm.

I called Lorraine, Miss Healthypants, and my mom once we landed.

I'm also buying a Scrabble set on my way home from work today. Lorraine's got me addicted to Speed Scrabble.

Miss Healthypants and I are going out to dinner tomorrow. I'm going to beat the pants off Miss Healthypants at Speed Scrabble.

Sorry about the crappy coffee and the turbulence. Have fun beating Miss Healthypants. Just remember, the "ox" in "pox" is not counted twice!

I'll let you know how the new rules work out. You know, to keep Iwanski at bay.
