Where I stayed

Saturday, September 6, 2008

Just finished the second flight. L-O-N-G, and it was less than a quarter of the length of my next one. I don't like aisle seats much, I'd rather curl up in a corner, yet all my seats are on the aisle. I'm not complaining, just saying... I might not get much of the sleep I need. It's 3AM at home, and I've caught that second-wind I get if I can manage to stay up past 1AM, but it makes the crash that much worse... I wanna charge this so I can play with it on the plane, but I don't see any outlets. The wait staff for China Airlines is very smiley though. I'm super excited to ride on these JUMBO jets I see parked all around, hope the food's good. I also hope my seat mates don't smell. The terminal isn't big enough for all the people waiting to get on these planes... it's probably a fire hazard.

I blame the lack of structure above on a lack of sleep on my part, but I'll treat you to a nice structured story.

The story:
After I got through the security check point, I spend a few minutes re-packing all my stuff, and then I headed off around the corner to find my gate. About 20 seconds after turning the corner, I heard lots of yelling from the security check-point, and I promptly whipped my head around to see what was going on. I saw about a half dozen TSA agents rush out and spread down the hallways yelling freeze and stop. They made everyone stop, but didn't say anything. With the stopping came quite, and I heard a deep male voice boom through the silence "I SAID STOPPP". I stood there half freaked out and half excited to figure out what was going on for about three minutes. And then yells echoed through and were repeated... "All Clear". Any idea what was going on?
