I went on a business trip.
Yep. Like a big girl.
I know you’re not surprised, since I’ve blogged about my flying adventures before.
This time was different though. I didn’t make a lobster roll spread on my way to Los Angeles by taking up a full row and laying out my condiments (shamelesssss) and I didn’t creatively procure free alcohol (it was weird).
I participated in the miracle of human flight in a different way and I got pretty excited.
Are you guys familiar with Louis C. K.? I apologize if this question is akin to me asking if you’ve heard of Miley Cyrus. DUH. (Unfortunately) (although that “We Can’t Stop” song – pretty catchy).
Anyway. Louis C. K. Comedian. Hilarious. Sometimes takes it too far. But mostly dead on funny.
A few years ago he was on Conan’s show and ranted for a fantastic bit that has come to be known as “everything is amazing and no one is happy,” during which he recounts how freaking awesome it is – this invention of human flight (among other things) (and rants on humans in general).
That’s how I felt.
Not only was it a gorgeous day for flying.
BUT I used the internet today. On board.
Not only was I 38,000 feet in the air, but I could TELL MY FRIENDS ABOUT IT.
In real time.
So I did.
I emailed my brother, my aunt, my boyfriend, my cousin, 10 of my co-workers, my grandma, several managers, my dad, and my hair stylist (ok my former hair stylist).
I realize in-flight wifi isn’t new. But it actually worked this time. And I actually felt like using it instead of taking some me time/had to dial-in (something about work).
I was totally going weeeeeeeee. (My row companion LOVED it. JK. But I did have an interesting convo with him that I’ll save for my next post. YUP. It’s a two-parter.)
Anyways, IT WAS AWESOME!
