i’m back

i’m back in california! the trip to the east coast was very pleasant. looks like an opportunity to move back east has opened. we’ll see what pans out later.

the first snow this season was falling heavily when i left for the airport last saturday. it caused flight delays at the baltimore washington international airport. mine was delayed for more than two hours. good thing, i didn’t have to change planes at the stopover in albuquerque, new mexico. otherwise, i’d have missed the connecting flight.

as usual, i took southwest airlines home. i went to the airport early as i was using my driver’s license as my id. i was afraid i’d be asked to provide more identification. i think the picture in my license isn’t me. it looks like the mug shot of a drugged terrorist. however, to my surprise, there was no problem at all when i presented it at the security checkpoint. too much worrying about nothing.

the first leg of the trip went smoothly. the plane was full, but nothing unpleasant happened during the trip. the crews were at their best. one of the flight attendants even gave a rendition of ‘leaving on a jet plane’ that would have made every american idol reject proud. if you really wanted to gripe at something, however, it must be the serving of the drinks. after handing over the snacks, the drinks came a little late. it caused the passengers to become thirsty making them look like crabby babies searching for the bottle. before long the drinks came with a smile. everything was forgiven.

when the plane landed in albuquerque, most of the passengers left. only 12 remained to continue the trip to oakland. after picking up 6 more passengers, the plane took off. this was the first time i experienced riding a 737 commercial flight with only 18 passengers on board. for a change, it allowed us to sit wherever we wanted.

and so i’m finally home. except for a few souls, nobody has noticed that i even left. the dirty pair of socks is still on the spot of the floor where i dropped it. the bathroom still needs a new roll of toilet paper. the car still needs a wash. back to my old routine, eh? i think that’s cool, if you ask me.
