My upgraded airline frequent flier status came through and I’m now one of those people that everyone else hates. The ones who have a faster security line; the ones who get called to board first, therefore ensuring we find space in the overhead for OUR bags; and the ones who can kick back in the lounge with free food and unlimited alcohol while everyone else lines up for coffee at a Timmie’s near the gate.
Yeah, it sucks. But I’m chalking it up to Valuable Life Experience. And I can bring one guest into the lounges, so if you see me in an airport, let’s be pals.
Just took me 45 minutes to get a two-minute Hep A/B vaccine booster shot because the nurse and I spent the entire time talking about our favourite beaches, islands and places to scuba dive.
I’m not normally much of a talker, but I don’t know anyone around here who shares some of those interests. So that was refreshing.
In unrelated news, I really want to go back to the tropics soon.
Down at the harbourfront, watching the sun set. There’s a giant inflatable mummy (as in 25 feet tall, wrapped in bandages with its arms raised menacingly) set up in the ferry terminal park.
