That’s the way to do it, my friends.
(Not always, as we learned with my first marathon.) But, generally, I think redeyes are pretty rad.
You get your entire day in your home city. You have time for a full day of work and packing and even an episode of Perception if you want. (Are you all watching Perception?) Eric McCormack rocks.
Then, you still have a full day in the new city. Also, barely any other passengers are at the airport when you check in. No lines for anything! There’s not a line to check in, or go through security, or go to the bathroom. No lines anywhere. Score.
When I first got to LAX at 11:30pm, I was so amazed by the lack of lines for anything, that I thought “This is amazing! I have to share it on the blog.” Then I got seated in an exit row! (What?!) Then ( – you have to imagine me emphasizing the word “then” more in each sentence) the guy next to me had snacks (lovingly prepared by his mother) that he shared!
Holy goodness. How much better can this plane ride get, right? I thought I must share all of this awesomeness, and this no-line redeye secret on the blog.
Then (no emphasis on that one), I realized that I’m pretty much just telling you stuff you probably already know while recounting a super normal day – where everything seemed magical, but in reality I was just some girl on a flight eating grapes from the stranger next to me.
Basically what I’m saying is –
Cory Booker – the Mayor of Newark, New Jersey – tweeted me! That’s right. He tweeted me. It happened. That has nothing to do with the rest of this post, but that’s really the exciting thing that needed to be said.
Goodnight. (Assuming you can sleep after all that crazy excitement.)
