Flight of Fancy
Just about to take off from LAX this morning, we were delayed for 45 minutes. For the longest time there was no explanation. Eventually, the pilot came on to say, with admirable honesty, that he'd been told there was a VIP who had been moved ahead of everyone in line. He didn't know who -- but he wanted to clarify that we were all important, too...though apparently this person was more important. Eventually we took off.
Later, I found out that Joe Biden had been in Los Angeles yesterday and was leaving today. I would guess that the Vice President most definitely counts as a VIP. Or more accurately as a VP VIP.
When I told the elves taking care of the home office about the delay, they found it all amusing. Mainly, they're not terribly interesting in what's going on with me and are just interested in keeping the place open, since it gives them free run of everything, most especially the well-stocked refrigerator.
