Chalk it Up...

...to my poor memory. I forgot one. It's from two weeks ago when we were flying to Oregon. We had the funniest lady flight attendant. She kept announcing over the PA system that "it sure is your pleasure to have us aboard today." I don't think many people were paying attention because you'd hear a few titters here and there. Then, she walked down the aisle collecting garbage with fake teeth in her mouth, making her look more like a witch than a flight attendant. Again, not many people noticed. It's amazing how little we seem to look at each other in the face anymore. It reminded me of Wall-E, where all the humans are zipping around on their "hover craft" talking to each other on computer screens without knowing that they are actually floating right next to their cyber buddy. Anyway, I liked her. She was funny.

We got home today. I love San Diego. I have missed it...and now I miss my Oregon family.

I like the idea of a funny flight attendant, spice things up a bit. I had a couple nice flight attendants who entertained my screaming one year old!

I do like southwest.
I always thought if a plane went down...I would want my flight attendents to be in sneekers to save me not HIGH HEELs...!!!!
But that's just me!
Glad you are home.
