Back to the Grind

I'm back in the city (insert frozen tear). Easter at the beach was wonderful. My husband WAS able to come and we were so lucky he was there. Today I'm back to black pants and a JCrew cable sweater. I'm also sporting a semi-tan face (yeah for good beach weather!) and multiple people have asked me what I did to my face. It's called a TAN Yankees. You should get one. They make you look prettier this time of year. I'll recap the whole weekend later but first I need to write a quick note to the girl next to me in 18B on the Delta Flight from Atlanta to LGA last night:

Dear Curly,

I too have curly hair and when you came down the isle to sit next to me on the plane I was very excited that you looked normal. Well, I was wrong.
  • You DO NOT need to use the entire bottle of calming serum. In fact, I've tried every product out there from all levels of $$ and this is what you need. It doesn't leave your hair crunchy or sticky and the best part...the smell doesn't KILL the poor girl who booked her skymiles ticket at the last minute and got stuck in the middle seat.
  • Speaking of the middle seat, apparently you have not had to sit there in awhile. There are rules. (Please click here and see first point under "during flight.")
  • Also, you are a lady and ladies sit with their legs CLOSED. This goes ESPECIALLY when your knee is hitting the person in the middle seat.
  • Now, let's talk about something that is easily fixable. If you want to chew gum that is fine. But, DO NOT SMACK IT and DO NOT POP IT. It's annoying and you are lucky I did not put it in between your legs while your chemical smelling head was almost on my shoulder.
I hope that you learn a little bit about etiquette before your next trip.

Sincerely,

Girl Stuck in the Middle Seat

PS. Man in back row with screaming kids. My husband wants to write a quick note to you. But I'll just write a quick something myself. If your kids are screaming and arguing and they are sitting next to each other. Wouldn't it be smart to sit between them to help break up the arguments. The rest of the plane would have really appreciated it. My husband was closer to you and your screaming girls so he'll have a few more choice words.

More later on the rest of my fabulous trip home. I hope y'all had a wonderful Easter weekend.

Oh I hate the middle seat!!! I always make sure I have my Ipod charged when flying to try to avoid strange convos, but apparently your experience could not be avoided!! I also have curly hair and typically buy Curls Rock (I think it is a Tigi product). This one is a lot cheaper so I am going to pick it up next time I head to target :)

I was laughing out loud when I read - "it's called a TAN Yankees." :) I am so glad your husband was able to join you this weekend! Sorry the flight was a bit of a nightmare!

Hilarious....I get so annoyed on flights. One time a woman was filing her nails and brushing the shavings off her lap... I gag just thinking about it!!!!
