My day on Friday started at 5:30 a.m. I was awoken by the garsh ring of a wake up call, reminding me that I would spend the next 6 hours of my life standing in line, running around, and sitting in an aluminum tube 40,000 ft. off the ground for 4 hours. I hastily got ready and took a shower, waited for my family to do the same, then, we all ran to the terminal as fast as we humanely could. Flying through security, we boarded the plane. An ancient 757-200. Seriously, the eighties called, it wants it's plane back. We waited 40 minutes for a "maintenance issue" to be ironed out. Not exactly reassuring. We finally took off, on the most scenic runway nonetheless, and I got this gem of a video.
The flight dragged on forever, and due to the plane being older than the internet, there was no IFE, and that made the flight last forever. When we finally landed in Dallas, we went straight to our rental car and drove another four hours to Austin, where the wedding was. This gave us just enough time to get ready for the rehearsal dinner. The saving grace of the day was that we got to spend time with our cousins. The rehearsal dinner was fun, and the food was good, but we were so exhausted, we left early, crashed, and didn't wake up until 10.
We piled on the bus, which was supposed to take us to the church where the wedding was supposed to take us to the church where the wedding was taking place.
The wedding was boring, as all church weddings are, but the reception was awesome with free drinks and hors-d'oeuvres.
We had a great time, and while it felt like we just got there, it was time to leave. We got back in our rental car, and we drove all the way back to DFW, where we would spend the night. Again, I was woken up by a wake up call reminding me that it was time to go back. Thankfully the 757-200 rev. 11/13 was updated by our corporate overlords at American Airlines, to be a little more comfortable, The flight was also much shorter than on the way in because of tail winds, which gave me enough time to write most of this post before I got the call that tomorrow was a snow day. *proceeds to procrastinate all other homework for tomorrow*
