Naturally, you would think that the airport in Boston on Thanksgiving Eve would be tightly packed. College kids traveling home, working professionals visiting families, it only makes sense that the airport would be a happening place. Well, apparently that was the case for every airline EXCEPT for Spirit (not surprising, spirit is low-key awful). This was great news for me today though, because I was traveling through Spirit to the Sunshine State and I got through check in and security within ten minutes of getting to the airport. I was left with two hours until boarding, so I watched the “Bon Iver, 22 a million press conference” on the youtube - which left me in tears and I will have to expand upon in another post because Justin Vernon is simply brilliant and deserves to be praised.
ANYWAY, this also meant I had time to get a coffee and a muffin which resulted in both a positive and a negative. The positive is that I am feeling alive and energized, however, the people next to me on this flight are definitely not. This is a negative mostly because I am at the window seat with two people in deep slumbers, and therefore trapped. This would not be an issue if I did not drink the coffee which makes me have to pee every five minutes. Truly a curse. I already had to wake them both up once, and now it is maybe a little over twenty minutes later - they are back lost in deep waves of sleep - and I am severely struggling trying to sit still in my seat and not bother them. I got a dirty look the other time, imagine if I did it again…. they would one hundred percent despise me. So here I am trying to distract my brain and body.
Very select music because this plane does not have wifi, leaving me to to my iTunes selection witch right now is only Danndelion songs from 2001 (Ooh Baby Baby) and voice memo archives.
But actually, I’m doing everything I can to keep my mind off of my blatter.
(Not working very well, as you can tell)
I just got so excited because they both woke up for a second! I was a pinch away from doing it.
but yes, you guessed right; they are back asleep. excuse me while i gently cry.
my laptop is about to die, that means my music is about to be gone as well, and so is my dignity, let them hate me, i have to pee.
