You board an aeroplane for a long-haul flight, and everything the person next to you does is annoying.
“One breath at a time.” The most annoying advice my therapist gave me for when I feel myself losing control. What am I gonna do? Take two breaths? Three? No shit I take one breath at a time. I get it, I get it, its meant to relax me, take me away from whatevers bothering me, put me in a better state. But he also told me about justified anger. When something is crossing your boundaries, my “reasona...
Today I’m going to China.
Or rather- tonight.
I have a flight scheduled for…
12:00Am- I think.
Let me just check-
Nope! It’s actually 1:00Am. Great.
And what time is it now?
-I check my watch-
12:00 Am, already?!?!
Welp, I better pack my bags.
I’m going to China soon!
I just remembered.
Doesn’t China have a CCP?
Whatever. I scheduled it already,
That means I MUST go.
-I leave the house,...
Arriving at the airport,
I just want to reach my transport
Hopefully make it to my resort
I have to keep my ambition,
And focus on my main mission
Nope, I can’t get distracted
Not even stops at the food court
But I see a Karen, and she just reacted!
Oh well, it’s not a show, she’s just overreacting
I reach my seat when we start boarding,
Dodging couples full of bags of hoarding
Do they really t...
The moment I sat down I knew in my deepest being that this was going to be the worst flight of my life. I had to sit in the aisle seat next to a young lady who was continuously blowing giant bubbles of coral pink bubblegum.
“Hi ma’am.” I had said when I first sat down.
“Eww! Are you hitting on me!? Your like 50 years old!” She said with obvious disgust.
“Oh no, I’m so sorry I gave you that imp...
The heaps of eggshell clouds encase the land behind, leaving you in awe. You notice the man adjacent to you begin to fidget uncontrollably. His glass shakes in his hands, nearly spilling the contents. He grips the arm rest between you both.
You examine him more closely, seeing his graying hair and shaggy business attire, worn and wrinkled. He has a sharp chin and a tall structure.
I really didn’t want to fly with Kyle. He always chewed his gum too loud and I really didn’t want any more updates on his terrible Bumble dates.
He was a nice guy but he wasn’t really great at picking up on social cues which wasn’t great for me since we were flying from New York to Barcelona.
Not even two hours into the flight Kyle was yammering about his grandmas bunion and the latest season o...
It had been almost a full day since I’d slept. 23 hours to be exact.
Waiting in the airport to board the plane to Atlanta, I felt more like I was waiting to check into a hotel. The plane would be my room, and my seat would be my bed for the night. I couldn’t wait to close my eyes and to get a little sleep.
But then I saw her. As I walked down the aisle of the plane to my seat, there she was in t...
As I walk down the aisle to take my seat, I catch a waft of something excruciatingly sweet.
As I wonder closer to my destination, I become more aware of my situation.
I’ve been seated next to a girl, I try to meet eyes but my heart makes a twirl.
She’s pale, beautiful, and tall, she almost resembled a doll.
I can’t help but blush, oh my how annoying....
Click, click, click. The seat belt wasn’t closing for my seatmate and I’m beginning to feel stuck. The man next to me is fidgety and feels no compunction about manspreading into my legroom space.
He’s not been particularly friendly either and I’m trying to imagine that maybe he’s just a nervous flier. Patience. Just take a deep breath.
The flight attendant comes over to offer a pre-flight beve...
