So Funny
September 27, 2005

In what can best be described as a terrible airport experience, I was sitting on the floor in Atlanta's Hartsfield Airport last night, wallowing in my own self-pity and extremely perturbed at Delta Airlines for making me miss my connection, when all of a sudden, Jesse Jackson walks by me. Even in my disgruntledness, I just had to laugh. I won't tell you what word jumped into my head the minute I saw his face, but I'd be lying if I didn't say the thought entered my mind to try to stage some sort of racial uprising in protest of Delta's incompetence with Jesse at my side.

Too bad Delta's bankrupt.

I'm on a plane back to Seattle now (finally). Regular poting to resume tomorrow.

Just as well I wasn't with you. I would have been tempted to behave in a very unlady like manner. Must remind hubby to keep me well away from Jesse Jackson, especially when there's cameras and bloviating reporters around . . .

Ambra, the problem you would have with Jesse Jackson staging a demonstration for you would be that nothing quite rhymes with your name! What the chants sound like?

Let's all chant:

"Delta's chutzpa whipsawed Ambra."

Tell Jesse that we are looking for some
"Solidification" of the "Solidification"

"Missed flights cause sleepless nights, poor connections lead to air travel defection!"

Delta's not ready when you are.

How big of an "entourage" did he have, was he talking and walking at the same time, and did he carry anything (like a suitcase)? If only you had one of those picture phones...

Two airlines you may not have heard off with a similar record as Delta are LIAT & BWIA or as affectionately called by there regular passengers
"Leave Island Any Time" and "Better Walk If Able" respectively.

Oops... that should be "their" passengers, above.

Too bad you didn't have a picture phone.

Actually I do have a camera phone. I have one of those TMobile Sidekick IIs....but who wants a picture of Jesse Jackson? I know I didn't.

Aw man, you missed your chance!
