Did I ever mention how weird I think airplanes are? Let’s load ’em all down with 8 bajillion and 50 pounds of crap and then make it soar amongst the clouds in a rainstorm. Who came up with that idea anyway? It’s like flying in a metal death trap up in that there thing. Day one of Whitney’s Bucket List Slaying adventure was spent traveling. Which is cool if you like to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to make it to the airport 90 miles away at 5:45 in the morning… basically that means Whitney did not sleep this day! Who needs sleep when there are vacations to be had! We had a layover in Denver, Colorado where I got to meet up with my FAVORITE sweater-wearing hottie… and by hottie I really mean, it must have been real hot like in the summertime wearing that sweater!
We then hopped back onto the flying death trap to make our way to the 2nd pit stop of our journey… Chicago, Illinois. OPRAH TOWN!!!!!!!!!!! 😛 For some reason, I’m pretty durn sure my friend Oprah stood me up at the airport. For rudeness… after all that stalking I’d been doing. Instead I got kidnapped by some chic wearing a Peeps shirt and driving a PT Cruiser. She tied us up, threw us in the trunk amongst our Godzilla luggage, drove us to the nearest Olive Garden, and made us eat stale saltines… no water… I repeat… NO WATER! Okay, that never happened, but that there part is going in my book I’m writing entitled, The Day I Got Stood Up By Oprah!
What really happened was I met my long lost penpal from years back… the Avster and her Madre! She was super sweet to pick up these random hitch hikers on the side of the road and drive us around the shady part of Chicago. She even brought awesome gifts… and homemade peach PIE… oh, and a bag of Peeps, which went untouched by this chick… get it… Peeps chick! After that, she drove us to the wrong airport and made us hitch hike back to the right one… okay, okay… I’ll stop with the horror stories!
We then hopped back on the plane to head to our final arrive-by-plane destination, Buffalo, NY! Go Meeses! That would be a FULL day of traveling… 3:30 in the morning to 10:00 at night. Then, after we waited for our rental care and I did my sanitize the hotel room routine and dance number, I finally got to bed at 2:30 in the morning. Plain ole TUCKERED!
I also learned that recycled cabin airplane air makes one crave ice chips and honey roasted peanuts… or so our friendly flight attendants seemed to think so. I love how they call it “complimentary” peanuts… I spent $400 bucks on my 2 airplane seats and all I get is 3 peanuts and an ice chip!? I’m thinking gold-plated teeth or you know… thinks like money would be more in order next time I fly. Oooo… or a date with Oprah!!! Maybe she likes honey roasted peanuts and ice chips! I’ll find out next time she decides to feed me stale saltines and crick water!
Day 2: Niagara Falls… coming tomorrowish… let Oprah know I saved her a seat!
