Woe to the Man Who Sits in the Middle Seat

I am so tired I don't know where to begin. And I'm still in Denver. That does not bode well, folks. Jet lag hasn't even happened yet.

However, I will say that I am finally excited. I mean, really excited. I have always wanted to go to Portugal. In my mind, it must be very beautiful and old-wordly and full of fisherman and beautiful white-washed buildings.

That could also be Greece.  But whatever.

I am still excited and I promise to take tons of pictures for your viewing pleasure. I did finally decide on a plane outfit...I know you were wondering. I have on comfy jeans, a white t-shirt, a black blazer, a fabulous scarf and cute little black booties that are super comfortable and easy to take off.

Speaking of which, it is always hilarious to me that we have to practically strip to our skivvies to pass through security. Such an awkward picture of humanity.DIA is a virtual smorgasbord of people watching.

I feel like I am rambling.

However, we have hit a bit of a snag. I would be panicking at this moment if it weren't for the fact that I feel like I just took an Ambien even though I didn't. But it's serious, people. Are you ready?

I couldn't find my inflatable neck pillow.

I may cry. Seriously. And all the German-speaking people around me will probably just stare at me but I DON'T CARE. Emotions are good for them. Friends, I need my neck pillow. It is part of my routine. It's what gets me over the ocean and back again. And more than that, the person next to me needs me to have my neck pillow too. Things could get ugly. There could be drooling and flopping and the dreaded head-bob. And that's before we even take off. What's going to happen in six hours when we are literally HANGING over the Atlantic and my neck pillow is 1000 miles away?

Drama. That's what's going to happen. Drama.

I am already praying that there is not some sort of international incident. But I really can't make any promises. Sleep is my best friend and I NEED MY BEST FRIEND.

Okay. I have to go now. It is almost time to board. And there is a Ben and Jerry's right around the corner. It is literally calling my name. I love when it does that.

Adios my friends!! Talk to you soon.


  1. Love You! Have a great trip!

  2. I hope you found your neck pillow and that it was a great trip! Glad you landed safely! Love you!!
