There is always a mix of excitement and dread when boarding a flight. It’s not just the trip at hand, it’s the possibility of who might become your seatmate. Will you sit next to someone who talks your ear off, someone who smells, a crazed child or will you meet someone wonderful.
Traveling solo, I prefer a neighbor who sits quietly allowing me to work with the occasional nicety. When traveling with kids, I prefer fellow parents or grandparents with a patient demeanor and kind smile. I can’t say that I have ever met someone on a flight who has made a lasting impression, but as a romantic at heart I want to believe in a fairy-tale flight.
Check out this trailer about one such perfect encounter…
Did it make you smile? I have to admit that I first saw this trailer waiting to see Skyfall with my husband, and it totally got me. I 100% thought it was a real movie until… well, if you watched it you know when I figured it out. Other than the fact that she says “totes” and “cra” (because no respectable blogger actually talks like that 🙂 ) I was thrilled there was going to be a movie about bloggers… Maybe some day.
Thanks for the laugh Sears.
