somewhere in middle America

April 23, 2008

I know everyone is jealous of me for being in Omaha. I’m practically jealous of myself. I really don’t have a problem with this place. I have a king size bed, microwave, frig, B&B Works toiletries. Plus mid-westerners are the nicest people (besides southerners). Granted, they don’t fit on RJs very well, but they’re very nice about it. Especially when the AC on the plane isn’t working properly and we are all sweating our.. things off. But we made it here. Was pretty uneventful. I got to read some more of The Titan’s Curse, which is the third book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. It rocks my face off. Pretty surprising for a book aimed at pre-teens.

Today my first round trip was to Panama City. A Delta captain and a lady got on last and sat in the front seats. The lady was smiling constantly. I finally asked her why she was so happy, assuming she was going on vacation or something. Her answer was that she was blessed by the Lord and she was married to that wonderful man. I was shocked. That’s just not an answer I get very often. Later I asked her how long they had been married. (I like to talk to people that seem to be happily married. I figure, I’d like to be happily married someday so maybe they can give me some tips.) I was surprised to hear that they were both 50 or so and had only been married 2 years. Neither had every been married before and had both given up on ever getting married. It was really interesting. I’m glad I asked her cause I was about to assume that she was medicated (still could’ve been I guess).

I had at least one really friendly person on every flight today and it made all the difference in the world.
