Yesterday Bossy arrived at her local airport nice and early, where arrived equals Bossy was dropped off by her son on his way to work, because some people work for a living while others go to blog conferences in Chicago.
As it turns out Bossy’s plane was delayed and here’s how she knew: her plane wasn’t even there yet. Makes flying to Chicago kind of difficult.
Bossy killed time by analyzing the other people who were scheduled to be on her flight, trying to figure out if they looked like the people she was destined to die with.
And then Bossy walked around the concourse and found a really neat display in front of a bar to lure customers inside. It consisted of a few glasses of wax booze made to look just like the real thing! Just to test the fact that the booze wasn’t real, Bossy poked her finger into one of the glasses.
But before Bossy could take a sip of the wax booze that was actually liquid, the plane was boarding.
Once on the plane, Bossy’s seat mates were very obedient when it came to following along with the crash preparedness film:
But Bossy was too busy eyeing up the airplane’s wing and wondering if she’d be able to balance on it when her plane goes down in the Hudson River. Even if Bossy’s plane doesn’t technically fly over the Hudson River. Technically.
As it happened, Bossy’s liftoff was successful, and within minutes Bossy spied the 19th floor of the high rise apartment building where she spent her childhood:
Bossy was so happy because typically she can never locate things when in the air. Kind of like how she can never see the fetus shape in an ulltrasound.
But then, just as Bossy was admiring her apartment building, it disappeared in a smear of fog — kind of like the actual apartment disappeared from Bossy’s life.
The rest of the flight was uneventful and as the plane approached the runway in Chicago, Bossy played the last of her travel games, which is to try to determine at what height the plane is exactly 19 stories from the ground.
Bossy can’t wait to see what else she learns at her blog conference.
