Once upon a time in a city south of Kansas City lived a girl.....well how else am I suppose to start this? 

Alright well as usual I tried to do too many things at once and managed to book my flight to leave the day BEFORE the last day of school. So I was out the door and on my way to happy hour before people could say so much as Boo!  In my rush to get moving the universe had other plans and decided that it would be best if all weather patterns in the US should go completely haywire and keep things exciting, thus delaying about every flight in the US.

Those of you that remember my first trip across the Pacific (couldn't board in KC, delayed till 2AM at LAX and then late arriving to Korea total something like 36 hours for a 19 hour flight.) would be proud to know that I had left plenty of time for things to go wrong, and so they did.

After checking in, precisely one hour before, and getting all ready to go through security I get a text that says my 8:15 flight will be delayed until 9:05.  REALLY! You couldn't have sent the text like 10 minutes earlier SOUTHWEST! Lame, so there I sat with too much time to kill so I began to call down the list of NKC people I know hoping for some pitty to be bestowed upon me.  This pitty of course came in the form of Betty being her usual mother hen self and sending me packing to the check in desk to ask about all these delays.  To which I was politely given a reprieve until the next day at 8AM!  YES!

This meant that I wasn't going to need to rent a car  in LA and stay awake all night to get pre-flight exhausted.  Instead I got to sleep at Betty's and relax.  THANK YOU BETTY, THANK YOU GOD and THANK YOU TO THE AMAZING WOMAN AT THE CHECK IN COUNTER!
