Red Eye

I took my first red eye flight last night. Contrary to what I expected, nobody was smoking weed.

I did, however, sleep for 3 1/2 hours of the 4 1/2 hour trip. They probably could have continued over the Atlantic if they had wanted to. I would have noticed by London that it was time to land.

So where did you go?

The only time I ever took a red eye was an "unplanned red eye". A flight from Baltimore to Orlando (for an audition) was delayed more than 5 hours from thunderstorms with lots of lightning. We ended up taking off at about 1:00am, arriving around 3:30am. Nothing like flying in a thunderstorm in the middle of the night, with the kid in the window seat going "Oooh, look how close that lightning bolt is, Mommy!"

Flight attendant, make that next drink a double...

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
