i timed my airport arrival to let me not leave my mom's home until i had to but allow for the drive and ga ing up the rental car. i get through security and see my flight delayed 30 minutes. had overheard check in counter worker comment about lots of delays. so i figure i got time for soup/salad/beer. after i place my order, instead of the plane slipping later, the bring it up 10 minutes. so i chug and gulp and now at gate waiting to see if they really will depart 10 minutes after this plane arrived. oh well my beer Buzz is maximized by my chugging it down in 2 minutes. chicago next stop where i hope for time for a hot dog But no major delays.
they did board us promptly and now i sit, having downed dog and sud, awaiting our flight to one of the usa most congested airports, LaGuardia. this trip i've been reading john peel bio book. back to it now. about 65% done.
