so did i tell you LA traffic lame and i never leave for the airport at the right time (either i end up showing 2.5 hours early, or i start cutting it really close)?
today, i came ridiculously close to missing my flight. as in, i arrived at the southwest counter 11 minutes before my scheduled departure.
(so i had planned for my photo of the day to be some cool plane shot. obviously, that did not happen).
i made it to the gate 3 minutes before takeoff. luckily, they were running a little behind and there were several other stragglers.
so i get on the plane...at this point my lovely A boarding has been bumped to crappy C boarding, which meant that i took a random middle seat that wass open. i was not pleased. especially when i discovered that i had ended up in one of the emergency exit rows and the guy next to me asked "are you 15?"
yeah. geez. thanks. apparently i look 14. hmph.
anyhow, i made it. i'm here. and the rest of the night was lovely - indian food, potato balls, lifehouse and telemundo (and trying to translate), and youtubing.
more adventures await me...cross your fingers that it doesn't rain....or at least *too* hard.
