So, I’m headed home today. My flight departs at 9:35 tonight from O’Hare but I’m going to make sure my bags are packed well and I’m going to head to the airport about 9 hours before my actual flight to try to fly home standby. It’s a good thing that I like to people watch because there is going to be a lot of people at the airport.
I’ve never flown standby before so I have to admit that I’m a little nervous about the whole thing. I just don’t want to be on a late flight that gets canceled or delayed and be stuck any longer in the airport behind people who have already been waiting for 16,000 days already. Martin’s friend Dawn says she has a good feeling about my getting home earlier than planned. Let’s hope she’s right.
