So 2 years ago I was looking at this gigantic thing.
Unlike the hundreds of other planes I had flown in, this one suddenly seemed too large to fly.
(Because airplanes only carrying 600 people are light as feathers! Logical, I know.)
But double decker with double engines on each wing. HEAVY!
I actually started sweating. (Clearly a mental break). And too my utter delight when I sat down, I had my own video screen where I could watch live the feed from the tail camera. I could watch myself go down in flames on my own personal tv screen! How awesome is that!?
Sadly, I did not go down in flames. It was actually a brand new plane, silent as a hotel room with really comfortable chairs. The best flight I've ever had.
Except for that time when my seat was 1A...
This year there will be no planes, only food. Feast 1 at parents, Feast 2 at Aunts, Feast 3 at restaurant with Grandma and the extended family. This was the menu and food for the latter, circa 2011:
Did I mention PRE-Dessert?
Followed by POST dessert: a round of coffee/tea and homemade caramel & truffles.
