I deserve today.
This morning, I slept in. ¬†Then, I went out to breakfast with my wife. ¬†After breakfast, we came home and I sat on the couch. ¬†Five hours later, I'm still here! ¬†I have chosen to be lazy today.
I deserve today.
On December 17, 2010, my wife and I flew to the East coast for the holidays. ¬†Traveling isn't easy. ¬†I mean the airlines try to make things as comfortable as possible...ok, not they don't. ¬†The airlines are a business. ¬†I get it. ¬†The problem is, they might be the worst industry in the world when it comes to charging for extras and/or upgrading.
Did you know that there is an airline that actually has an advertisement that suggests that you spend about $50.00, you can have "five extra inches of room". ¬†Yes, you read correctly. ¬†5 inches of extra room.
I skipped the extra fee and sat in my tiny little seat and flew to the East coast with my wife. ¬†We hung out with family and friends. ¬†There were laughs, smiles, arguments and fights. ¬†For many people, spending time with family can be stressful! ¬†If you can relate, guess what? ¬†Guess what? ¬†You and I are in the same boat!
After two weeks of happy, yet stressful times, we were set to leave on Saturday, January 1st. ¬†Upon arriving at the airport, we found out that our flight was cancelled because of "flight crew" problems. ¬†Oddly enough, this is the same reason that our flight was cancelled last year. ¬†The happy woman at the check in counter tapped her fake finger nails into the computer keyboard and turned to us with a smile and said, "I can get you out on on the 4th".
How's that for awesome? ¬†The flight crew has "issues" and the passenger (us), gets stuck for three days? ¬†Are you kidding me?
After some back and forth bickering, I told her that I couldn't go back on the 4th. ¬†After some more discussion, our travel plans were changed. ¬†In the end, my wife and I got back to California after a 16 hour travel day!
One week later? ¬†I am home. ¬†Sitting on my couch watching football. ¬†I think it's ok to be lazy from time to time. ¬†Today? ¬†It's my time!
I deserve today!
