Three Short Stories From North Dakota

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:47 pm by Ian

Time my first flight reached the gate in Minneapolis: 12:44 pm
Time my connecting flight was scheduled to leave: 12:57 pm
Time required to sprint from gate F2 to gate C12 (estimated distance .75 miles) through a crowded airport: 7 minutes.
Time my luggage actually arrived at the hotel: 10:30 pm.

The flight attendent came to us at the beginning of the flight.

“You are seated in an exit row. Are you comfortable with that?”

We stretched out, extending our legs fully in the extra space provided for people to flee the aircraft.

“Quite comfortable; thank you.”

A sign in the church read:

Practice
Ressurection

While I admire the sentiment, it seems like that’s really the kind of thing you have to get right the first time.

    LOL on the practice resurrection.
    Airports, aren’t they fun? Remember the chaos on the way to DC the first time? Hurry up and wait is the name of that game. The military does it best, in my humble opinion.
    Love Ya.
