... boarding to sit wherever we please. True patience is being demonstrated by my supreme ability to wait to stretch out across three empty seats at the back of the plane and continue sleeping. When I awoke I was disoriented and didn't believe I even existed. After I came-to I realized someone had shut all the windows around me. Ate a good meal but now feel even more nauseous, and will probably sleep for the remainder of the flight--another 3 ...
