I flew in from Germany on Friday the 18th, just one day before the big opening of 100 Acres. Because of the storms and the plane almost running out of gas, we had to land in Detroit and wait there on the plane. I was freaking out because I had been on a plane for 10 hours and I asked the flight attendant what the worst case scenario was and she said, “You don’t want to know….” Luckily, we got back to Chicago and I was able to get home around 2AM. Still, a total of 13 hours on a plane is kind of rough on the legs and brain.
Of course, ALL of us were having trouble getting into the Chicago airport because of all of the delays. Andrea Zittel, Tea Makipaa, and I were all flying in from Europe and we were all stuck at the airport the same night! I wish I would have known! My dad picked me up in Chicago since it was cheaper and quicker to do than to get a connecting flight to Indy. If I knew they were also stuck there, I could have given them a ride.
It is crazy how we all end up in the same place. The world seems so small at times.
