I will let the pictures speak 1000 words...
23.11.2010 - 24.11.2010
After dealing with Delta Airlines (see my complaint letter on the last entry) to get a flight out of Shanghai and back to America I had the pleasure of sitting 14 hours with this lady.
And the funny thing is that I was sitting in my assigned seat at the begining of the flight when the little old lady infront of me turned around and saw that the 3 seats next to me were empty. She started rubbing her arm saying she was in pain and wanted to switch seats with me. At first I said no but then I felt guilty and switched. It wasn't 15 minutes later before my new seat mate started snoring in my ear. I sat for a second contemplating my options and decided to turn around and get my seat back. The little old lady moved alright. She scooted down to the end of my row and stretched out over the 3 empty seats so I had the pleasure of sitting with her feet touching my leg for 14 hours. Jared and Melissa found it all rather hilarious.
When I got tired of watching our Farewell DVD over and over again, reading my "No Excuses" book and trying to sleep while babies cried I walked around and took pictures of the lucky soles who were sleeping.
The lady that was snoring was now stretched out too since her orgional seat mate was stretched out next to me. It was just a win win for everyone... but me.
At least we all got home safely and it sure is good to be back! See below what Melissa's mom made for her when we arrived at the Indianapolis airport at 9:45pm. So cute!
