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!
