June 19, 5:30 AM -- Bellevue Transit Center
I originally planned this trip during the depths of the miserable 2014 Spring: cold, wet, cloudy, gray. Greece would be a nice respite. 2015 has brought an historically pleasant Summer and Spring though, which kind of bugs me. This morning is a good one to leave though: cold, wet, cloudy, gray.
The bus driver is warning about unusual traffic, likely due to the US Open. Even now, golf finds a way to spite me.
The bus is rolling, and it's only a matter of time until I'm in the airport wondering if it's okay to stop dieting.
June 19, 7:45 AM -- Tarmac @ Seattle-Tacoma Intl Airport
There was an issue checking in. I'll go to my grave never knowing what it was, and why I had to speak to a representative.
Anyway, I'm on the flight to Chicago, then to Paris. Diet intact: just grabbed coffee.
June 19, 3:00 PM -- Tarmac @ O'Hare Airport
Uneventful flight to Chicago, save for 50 minutes of Benny Hill, Yakety Sax taxiing problems after landing.
Somehow got stuck with another middle seat. On an 8+
hour flight, that's dire. I could have sworn I booked an aisle seat -- can't help but feel this is related to the check-in problems earlier. The "unknown error" was "whoops, we double-booked your seat."
I'm ready for Paris .
Side note: Tiger's collapse yesterday netted me $82.50 from Will. Figures Venmo won't work for me right now.
