This trip was probably the first time I have arrived at the BOI airport at least an hour before departure. When it was boarding time and the pilot announced the flight was to Las Vegas and San Diego the first thing that came to mind is “sure I arrive early but manage to get on the wrong fight?” I was a little more annoyed and then I became worried. I needed to get off that plane as fast as I could. Fortunately for my Droid I pulled up my itinerary again to check the flight number and layovers. There were no layovers or connections listed. My itinerary just said from Boise to San Francisco. I asked the lady next to me what the flight number was and she didn’t know. The flight attendant wasn’t sure and I asked “Is this going to San Francisco?” His reply “eventually”. Eventually? No, I need to know if I’m going to San Fran in the next 6-12 hours. Why didn’t he even know the flight number? I took the eventually as a yes and thought about how long the flight was going to be. It didn’t seem like it was going to be that long but we managed to make the “J” route in the sky in about 4-5 hours. I’m guessing not to many people fly from Boise to San Francisco but the two people who were that day happened to be sitting right next to one another. Weird how that works isn’t it?
I had an aisle seat and once we started landing in Las Vegas the guy next to me commented on my graphic design work. During the flight I was working on the calendar listings for the Knitting Factory and Neurolux. Who knows how many people on the flight were watching especially with the seat I was in. They got some extra exposure. I don’t remember where the conversation actually began after asking about the graphics. I think it may have been along the lines of music and he was curious what I was doing for music in Boise. Then he mentioned he had a friend by the name of Christian in a band called The Maladroids and asked if I had heard of them. I laughed a little and said “Yes, I know those boys”.
…..then the flight started getting interesting.
