Hawaii - Day 1

Nov. 22…4 a.m… Cab to LGA with coworker Celia… Run into Johnny Wisconsin in the terminal…Fly to ATL… Cool, two seats to myself… Not cool, three toddlers the next row over… 9.5 hours… Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa...waaaaaaaaah...Mommy!...I want a cooookie!... She took my truck!!!...I’ll just turn on my iPod… Wait, it’s dead?!... I’ll just turn on my computer… Wait, it’s dead?!... Ok, I’ll use the Delta in-flight headset…. Wait, it’s dead?!... Now I'm crying... Chicken and rice for Thanksgiving? womp womp... Are we there yet?....Yes, at 3 p.m. Hawaii Time… Big hugs with Trina (FYI: Trina and I met while studying abroad in Paris in 2003)…Off to Trina’s mom’s house for Hawaiian Thanksgiving… turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes – hey, it’s the same as Floridian Thanksgiving… Except, the Hawaiians are huggers and I’m a hand-shaker…. Awkward… Off to Trina’s dad’s house for Thanksgiving… But I fell asleep on his couch…
