I broke down and paid for the wireless connection. My flight got in half an hour early, and my connecting flight is delayed by 45 minutes, so I’ve got just over 3 hours to kill. What better way than blogging? Don’t tell me I should be reading. I am. I’ve finished a good chunk, and I’ve just discovered that I need to download another reading, which is another good reason for getting online, right? So I’m not procrastinating at all.
Cool tidbit: the Chicago PD, while patrolling at Midway Airport, get around on segways! I’ve got pics, but the cable to upload them is packed, and even though it’s packed in my carry-on, it’s still buried deep, deep under all my other belongings. I’ll get them uploaded later.
I also have a picture of the bag of pretzels I got on the first leg of my flight. On front it says, “How to eat Gourmet Pretzels on a low-fare airline: See back for complete details.” On the back it says, “Eating Instructions: 1) Think about our wonderful low fares at airtran.com as you open packet. 2) Place a pretzel in mouth. With each crunch, be reminded of our low fares. 3) As you swallow, remember again just how low the fares are. 4) Repeat until pretzel packet is empty. 5) Keep empty packet to remind yourself to book at airtran.com for our lowest fares and no booking fees.”
