Packing was a stressful experience. i had no idea what I needed and what I didn’t for this trip. I ended up only taking one suitcase and one carry on. Now that I am over here, I think it worked out. Or I don’t know it is missing yet.
This was my first time flying on a commercial flight and, not gonna lie, I was freaking out on the inside. All I could think about was the plane crashing into the ground. Images from Final Destination, LOST, and that episode of Supernatural with the Demon Plane raced through my mind. Now your probably thinking, “Boy, he needs to calm down.” I was thinking, “Boy, I need to get out more. Or watch PBS.”
We left from St. Louis in some small fixer-upper. The flight attendant didn’t inspire confidence when he said one of us would have to move up to the front to equalize the weight. I’m saying my prayers at this moment…
We made it to JFK and spent the next 3 hours chilling in the terminal. I spent a little time exploring the airport and squinting at the New York skyline. How do you know your from a small town? When you think airport terminals are cool.
We took off from JFK on a massive Boeing 767. My nerves have settled. I figure if the bucket with wings didn’t go down, this one can’t. My heart didn’t get much rest though.
I’m sitting next to Kayla on the plane, who has red hair. Now, the jury is still out about my color, but to one particular flight attendant it was as red as a London double decker. She sees us from the other aisle, walks over to us and asks “I bet I know what color your kids’ hair is going to be?”
So after another round of prayers to God for a low sperm count, we lifted off. To all my New York friends, the lights of your city is beautiful at night. It looked like rivers of light from above. Before I die, I want to visit and see it from ground level.
I ended the night watching Office Space. Not much sleep though.
So before I come back to the States, what new disaster plane films should I see? Type your suggestion in the comment section below.
