My flight to Chicago was relatively easy. I had the iPod for the first time and listened to a long interview with Bill Murray and This Week in Technology with Leo Laporte.
I love Leo. He’s been a trailblazer in tech. The show was rudderless. I still listened all the way through. I just wanted more meat and more structure.
That only happens in the movies, right?
About ten rows behind me a woman had suffered a seizure. As I’d later find out, she had medication with her. This must not have been a total surprise.
You would guess this sort of thing puts you to the head of the line for landing. We hit the ground, hit the brakes, did a 250 degree turn and pulled right to the terminal.
The door popped open and in rushed three Chicago Fire Department EMTs.
I can’t tell you how the woman is. She looked unconscious as they moved her off in a wheelchair.
Before we landed, the crew asked everyone to stay seated and not go to the overhead bins. The instructions were followed.
The Chicago-LAX passengers are starting to get on. It will be a full flight. I’ve moved back a row and taken a window seat. Maybe I’ll see some snowcapped mountains.
Next stop Los Angeles.
