Santa Goes Back in the Closet

Happy New Year everyone! (picture is my costume closet room) Sorry, Hanukkah Harry got really busy with the holidays. The last three shows went really well. Hopefully next year I can come up with some other cool music for Santa to jam too. I love peaking through the curtain to wave to the little kids before they run out to skate. One asked me where did I get “those,” pointing to my firework attachments. “I had my elves make ‘em.” I love it how they just smile and nod, I mean come on, how can you not believe Santa???

So my only story to really tell you about was my last 3 flights heading out to Dallas. Flight number 1 started with a woman who sat next me who smelled like you wouldn’t believe...I swear I thought I was going to pass out! Flight number 2, this 20 something year old kid sat next to me with nothing to do I guess. I mean come on, 2 hr flight, bring something to do man! So first comes the leg bouncing up and down, the ENTIRE time, creating more turbulence to the plane then normal. THEN, he started to look at the Sky Mall mag and the other one that comes in your seat pocket, you know that has no information except for movies on the international flights and diagrams of the airports you can visit. Imagine if you will, he would look at one page, and then frantically flip to another one 1/4 of the way through, hold a few seconds....OK now frantically flip to another like you realized you missed something. Yes, those 2 magazines, the entire 2 hours. G-d help me, I wanted to kill him. Finally flight number 3. Everything appeared to be going so well. Girl next to me had her lap top on watching a DVD. I closed my computer as the stewardess passed us the drinks (me being on the isle.) I saw her attempt to have the can and her drink sit next to her computer by me. Thankfully my Spidey Senses were tingling, and I waited to put my lap top back onto the tray...which of course in less than the time I would have had my precious down, over goes the can of coke. A bit on her computer, on her, and down the side between us...nothing on me or the lap top...a bit of spray to my tray table. If my Mac was sat down...oh I can’t bear to even think about it!

Travelers beware....

Be well,

Dan
