|She's our Rubber Duckie|
We had one layover on our direct route from Florida to Alabama, changing planes in Baltimore, Maryland. Our sassy flight attendant put on a free show for us with some of the following quotes along the way:
"Once you find your seat, you have 2.5 seconds to get out of the aisle before we come at you with cattle prods."
"Please shut off any Blackberries, pink berries, blueberries, strawberries or any other type of berry before take off."
"If I see you with an electronic on after the doors have closed, I will make an example of you and embarrass you."
He also grabbed my arm and growled at me when I attempted to toss my Coke can into his trash bag, causing me to scream at him. Good luck to anyone trying to sleep on his flights.
|Thankfully there were no stray babies|
Huntsville may not be Miami, and I mentally prepared for the worst - incomprehensible accents, roach-infested buildings and hate crimes. Thankfully there's been none of this - just that hugging cult. But on a day off like today - sunny and the perfect temperature in a radiant park filled with ducks and fish - it's hard not to see this moment as just a small slice of unexpected heaven.
