Airplane Sprawl

7:49 AM

This one might not be very exciting, but gosh it seemed exciting at the time.
I recently flew to Idaho and back (more awesome than it sounds) and on one of my four flights, I got the whole row to myself. This has never happened to me before. Ever. I kept trying not to get my hopes up as passengers walked to the rows around me, but then...the airplane doors were closing. People were buckled in. And I had my own row. It was a magical moment. I'm 5'11", so I'm tall for a girl, and squishing into an airplane seat is anything but comfortable. I can't even imagine what really tall guys go through. Airplane seats are tiny! For three of my four flights this weekend, I was curled up in the fetal position against the window...but for that one miraculous quick leg of the trip, I got to sprawl across the seats, using as much space as I possibly could. And as trivial as this all sounds, I was so happy about it that it seemed to deserve its own drawing. To commemorate the flight that was. To remember that, if only for a brief moment in time, I was on an airplane with plenty of leg room.
