Mom and I decided to get the heck out of Dodge and head to sunny Arizona for a long weekend of R&R to visit Biehly and Kristin.
When Mom and I got on the airplane for our flight to Phoenix, we found that our seats were located by the noisiest part of the plane; the engine! There was also an emergency exit door right across from me which had a suspicious looking brace holding it together. The stewardess kept checking it with a worried look on her face. Who says airplanes are safer than cars?
When the stewardess walked by later with snacks, she looked at me and said, "Peanuts or cookies?"
I quickly replied, "YES!"
"Which one?" she asked, grouchy that someone would dare assume that both would be given.
"Cookies?" I said, hoping my choice would be the right one. I figured the stewardess must be feeling especially stressed, wondering if that duct tape was going to hold throughout the trip.
My mom, who switched seats before the snacks to avoid the noise of the engine said she asked her stewardess for both peanuts and cookies and was given both. Mom has always known how to get her way! I've really gotta watch and learn!
Needless to say, we were happy to land with the door securely strapped shut and Mom's tummy full of peanuts and cookies.
