I realized I never blogged about my travels from Charlotte to Jacksonville. It was VERY interesting. While waiting in the airport, my friend called to say she might not make her flight due to horrible traffic in West Palm. Luckily before I boarded my plane she made it to the airport just in time.
So as I was sitting on the plane and we were leaving the gate, our pilot announces a mechanical issue so back to the gate we go! It is then announced that the repairs could take 15 to 45 minutes. All I kept thinking was “there’s something wrong with the left phalange” from the very last episode of Friends when Phoebe tries to stall Rachel.
I’m not going to lie, when he announced mechanical issues I started to get jazz hands. Here I am on a sold out flight and I was about to spazz out.
30 minutes goes by and we have another announcement… we’re switching planes.
6 minutes later the pilot announces we’re staying on the plane… just kidding y’all, you can put your luggage back in the overhead bins and sit down!
Meanwhile I was trying to pass time by playing Words with Friends, texting friends, reading my new favorite book (Let’s Pretend This Never Happened) and taking pictures of miscellaneous things just to keep my jazz hands down to a minimum.
Finally at 11:15 we finally took off (over an hour later). Turns out my friend’s flight was also delayed and we both got to Jacksonville about the same time!
I was soooo glad to finally get there so I could start my long weekend catching up with one of my best friends!
