I flew down to Southern California this morning for work and I specifically took the earliest flight possible* because it’s usually just full of business types who pretty much stick to themselves. Or so I thought. I got stuck by this guy who…
– Talked to me all while I was knitting the intricate part of the pattern (I lost my place).
– Stole my armrest (if you have to sit in the middle seat, you’re entitled to BOTH armrests, people!) so he could play SOLITAIRE!!! (Here I am making something and he’s stealing my armrest to play a game!!!)
– Complained about how unfair it was that I could bring my knitting needles on board and he couldn’t bring his lighter (i.e., incendiary device!!). I have 2 words for you: What-ever.
Other than that, the rest of the flight was pretty uneventful. I broke my resolve and cast on for a new project and actually made some significant progress (woot woot!). (I couldn’t finish T’s gloves without him, so I don’t feel too bad about starting a new project.) I’m here all week, so hopefully I’ll get some good knitting time in.
*Correction: I just found out from a coworker that there was a 6:50AM flight too. But that would’ve meant I would’ve had to be at the airport around 5. And for me, there’s only one 5:00 in my day, and it’s PM. 🙂
