I could not be in a better mood right now.

Currently I am sitting in the Minneapolis/St.Paul airport drinking a chai tea frapacino and waiting for my flight to Orlando. The reason I am in a great mood isn’t because I will be spending the next 10 days in sunny Florida nor because I will be spending it with Erin. It isn’t because I opted to take a later flight out of Minnesota for a $300 flight voucher + meal vouchers, nor because I will be flying first class on the later flight. It is because I had one of those moments where you realize your life is good. As I was waiting in line for the flight I was about to change I was grumpy and tired and just wanted to be done with flying then it happened. I looked around and realized I was in an airport in Minneapolis. A week prior I was in Winnipeg and before that Niagara Falls. This produced a smile that would not go away. Things are great.

As I waited for my upgraded ticket a rather large and ornery lady that got bumped from the same flight was loudly talking on her cell phone. She was complaining about anything and everything. I felt bad for her. Not because she didn’t get on her flight but because she was so cynical about everything. Attitude goes a long way and I believe it can go as far as biting you in your over sized ass and get you bumped from your flight.

Then again, you could have just caught me on a good day.

Here comes the sun.
