Leah's off to the airport

And, assuming everything's going smoothly, is sitting in a cramped seat between some guy who's way too sweaty for 6 in the morning and a lady who won't stop clearing her throat. And, if this is the case, she's wishing she had someone with whom to exchange an annoyed glance. Ha, that'll be the last time she goes on a trip without me.

Hey, wait, she just called. Apparently the plane is being delayed because the flight crew "has to get some sleep." Wait, what? a) I've seen Airplane, there's three pilots for a plane. Sleep in shifts. Treat it like a road trip and b) maybe hire another pilot so the night crew doesn't have to become the day crew. She already only has an hour to catch her next connecting flight and now it looks like that is going to turn into 40 minutes or so (if everything goes well).

I bet she's glad she's a runner now.

So, a lady who's:
  • already a nervous flyer
  • hates to be late
  • prefers to be a 1/2 early
  • can't stand being completely powerless
is stuck reading her book waiting for a pilot to show up. Fun. Good luck!

Aww! I hope she makes her connecting flight.
