July 17, 2009, Checkin

3pm – I check-in, get through customs and claim the GST back on my recent camera and ipod purchases without drama. I am fearful that my cough will come back and that I’ll have to travel in the cargo hold with a suspected case of swine flu. It doesn’t eventuate. I am thankful. 4pm – the flight was due to leave 30 minutes ago, but we are still on the tarmac. Something about the toilet drain overheating. Hope they sort it out in time for me to catch my connecting flight. 5pm – we finally take off, 1.5hrs later than scheduled. ETA = 9 minutes before my connecting flight is due for takeoff…it is not looking good.
