Bring on the Brotherly Love!

I was not super happy to be awakened by Room Service this AM particularly when I have the 'Do Not Disturb' door hanger thingy displayed. Between the time change and day lights saving, I'm a tired mess. Where is the Brotherly Love, Philadelphia...where is it?!

I'll tell you where it is. It was on the plane. Yeah, the one where I get so sick that I had to keep swallowing my puke until it got to be too much and too fast. Nasty, I know. Let me be the first to tell you that in the midst of all of the money saving cut backs Delta does not have barf bags. WTF?!

Fortunately for me to there was a fellow who had a bag and unfortuantely or fortunately as the case may be he noticed my dilemma and gave it to me just in the nick of time! I'm still trying to decide if I was more relieved or embarrassed. I have already purchased Dramamine to help keep the puke out of my flight on the way home next Sunday. Yes, both flights on the way here plagued me...ugh. Thank you kind man with the bag, thank you.

I must have called home 30 times by now. I'm so lost without my family and am anxious for my training to start today, yes today, Sunday. I am now thinking that I should not have waxed my eye brows last night. My skin is sore and red and I'm just hoping I can conceal it when I meet the group today!

On the B Side: I am excited to have arrived in Philly safely without too many hitches. I didn't have any problems finding my hotel and have had quiet time to rest. I miss my family like crazy...no I mean literally. What I did before I had a family, I do not know.

Oh Britta - there has been way to vomit in you life that past week. So sorry you are already home sick. Try and enjoy the break however - they are few and far between!

So sorry to hear about the plane. That sucks. Enjoy a nice bit of time away. Maybe you can get some extra zzzzzzzzzzzzz's. Hope you have a great time!

Poor thing.... I get nervous when I'm flying, but not that nervous...I just fly white knuckle.

Enjoy Philly. Have a cheesesteak sandwich for me.

Lois Grebowski said...

ooops! Cheesesteak sandwich -- probably not the thing to mention on a barf post... sorry!
