I took about a week off from blogging during the holidays…some much needed rest, although I’m still not completely recharged.
My son and I took a plane to Washington DC to spend New Years with my BFF and her kids.
Think we could ever go anywhere without “something” happening? Think again.
We were sitting on the plane…it was full…lots of babies and children. Jacob was in the window seat. I was in the middle.
We took off. Uneventful. Nice. Lots of beautiful scenery.
We hit the 10,000 feet level and the pilot turned off the seatbelt sign. Me…being very diligent in my health & fitness (psst…actually feeling kind of guilty for my lack of restraint in eating and drinking sodas over Christmas, but that’s just between us.)…brought my Cambelbak water bottle with me.
Anyways, so at 10,000 feet, I lean over to grab my water bottle for a drink.
I undid the drink spout…and I kid you not…the water SHOT straight up in the air through the spout, hitting the top of the plane!!!!!!!!!!! You know those gorgeous water fountains? Yea, like that.
I was in SHOCK. I wasn’t even sure what was happening at first….but immediately put my finger over the spout and closed it. This was at the same time as the wave of water came back down on top of my head, the people in front of me, the people behind, and the chick next to me. At the same time, people were screaming around us!!!!!!!! They thought something happened to the plane!!!!!!!!
The bottle must have been under pressure from the take off. I swear, I can’t make this stuff up.
The flight attendants were in the front of the plane starting to serve drinks. I quickly calmed everyone down around me, telling them it was my water, not the plane breaking apart. My son looked at me and said “Mom, your mascara is running.” (Honestly, do you notice a theme with my blog posts? My mascara always seems to run. Note to self: get waterproof mascara.)
I summoned the flight attendant because I needed something to mop up the water off of the ceiling and the seats. She said that she has NEVER seen something like that happen with a water bottle. Figures.
And those are the Days of Our Lives.
