Blogging From 30,000 Feet

I am literally in a plane right now, on the Internet, on my iPad. Wireless on a plane is waaaaaay better than snakes on a plane. Or so I imagine.

Bought the feather earrings today. (Yup. Definitely having a midlife crisis.)

No one is sitting next to me. It's sooooooo nice. In case you didn't know, I'm kind of antisocial. Chit chatting on airplanes is so not my bag, baby. BUT. I will say this...on my last flight, there were two ladies sitting in the row behind me who were having a FABULOUS conversation. I kind of wanted to be sitting in their row because they sounded like they were having so much fun. (Of course I was totally eavesdropping. I don't like socialness for myself but I really enjoy it on other people.) They were talking about their kids, grandkids, significant others, their lives growing up, and on and on and on.

Anyway, I got a little tense when one of the ladies (who was middle aged) mentioned to the other lady (who was elderly) that her "significant other" was actually a woman. And I worried that the older lady might not like that, and my vision of these two ladies meeting on a plane and becoming BFFs forever and ever and ever would not come to fruition. But then the older lady said "Relationships are relationships. Love is love." and on went the conversation.


Boy, this post is random. I guess that's what happens when you blog live at a very high altitude.

I'm not social either.

No one next to you on the plane, awesome. :)

I'm totally the same, can't stand it when I'm seated next to someone on a plane who just wants to talk! But listening to others' conversations = awesome!

I can imagine half holding my breath from the row in front of those ladies, hoping they wouldn't get into some kind of crazy political conversation after that comment...and breathing a sigh of relief at the older lady's answer. Very cool. :) :)

I love sitting alone on a plane too.

I wonder if you become more open-minded as your age...I think some people get better and some people get worse!
