My first plane flies from Kentucky to O'Hare where I'm suppose to meet my internship partner coming from school in Minnesota (Alicja, originally from Poland). The plane is ready for takeoff, but she is no where to be seen, even the stewardess knows her by name (it's never a good thing when the crew knows your name).
Meanwhile, while we are waiting, I find out that my new seatmate is a rather large guy that doesn't speak much english. Oh Lord, please not 10 hours of this! At the last minute I see Alicja coming down the narrow isle, her luggage in tow. We hadn't seen each other for 2 months... what with vacations and all-- her going home to Poland and me going home to Kentucky. She sat a couple of seats down from me. And better yet, before take off we worked a deal with the dude so we could switch seats and sit together.
Sigh... safe sleep on this flight is now achievable.
