First, I get to the airport and go to checkin and the self service kiosk. No go. My itinerary won't pull up. I see a ticket agent who tells me that although I booked through this airline, I would be flying on a partner airline and would need to go about thirty gates down to check in and board. HUH? Oh, and it's the Monday of Spring Break so every slow walking, toddler wearing a leash thingy, mom juggling a million things and trying to walk family is
Of course, the plane only holds about twenty people so I rationalize that being the last "5%" to get on the plane isn't so bad. So I take my window seat next to the business man reading his Wall Street Journal and thank God that I'm next to a small, nerdy type instead of an overweight BO type. That's my M.O. and nobody's taking it from me! After take-off the flight attendant announces that we are expecting a bumpy ride and the captain has requested that everyone remain in their seats, with seatbelts fastened. No big deal, except that the turbulence kicks in right about the same time as my morning sickness. Afraid to "break any rules" and get out of my seat, I remove the dreaded barf bag from the seat pocket. Just in case. And then. It. Happens. I have to actually USE the barf bag. As the business man trys to make himself even smaller in an attempt to put any sort of space between himself and the violently heaving stinky girl.
Yep, that's me. Awesome. Welcome to Lincoln friggin Nebraska. UGH.
