A row all your own

So I fly from Phoenix to Chicago Midway….

Stopover in San Antonio.

The light is full from PHX to SAT.

All but three of us get off in SAT.

The flight attendants tell me that the flight from SAT to MDW is only gonna be about 2/3 full.

I move to the front of the airplane, as I only have carryon luggage  and I can get on the road to home quickly that way.

The flight starts boarding. We are nearly done when a HUGE woman comes in the door. Like 5’2″ and pushing 350 lbs…she barely fit in the aisle.
Carrying a 6 week old baby in a carrier and two bags…plus a diaper bag.

She stops at my row and asks if she can sit there.

Shit.

“Of course”, I say….”It will give us a chance to discuss your child’s relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ”.

I had the entire row to myself for the flight

  1. The danger there was that she might just have taken you up on the offer. Then, you'd have to deliver a good salvation message.
