the theme for tonight is LOUD

April 21st has come and gone, and now I'm a doctor!

At some point I will write up a lovely post about how meaningful this is to me and about all the wonderful people who have helped me get to this point in my life, but tonight is not that night.

Tonight is the night where I tell you never to fly Spirit Airlines, because it has led to me being trapped in LAX for 5 hours and experiencing the following:

a woman talking VERY loudly into her phone and standing bizarrely close to me in the security line, resulting in the sensation of someone yelling in my ear. I now know all about her recent job interview for some sort of early childcare position. IT WENT WELL.

while charging my phone, getting stuck sitting between a woman watching a tv show on her phone full volume without headphones, and a woman with smelly bare feet

purchasing and then opening a recently shaken bottle of sparkling water, which is now all over my pants

Right now neon yellow-vested men are dismantling the chairs in the area where I'm sitting, so I should probably wrap this up and find another miserable corner to continue debating whether this delayed flight warrants paying for a month of Hulu so I can distract myself by watching "The Handmaid's Tale." Wish me luck.

Oh my. This sounds like one for the venting blog. Do we need to reboot that? :)
