The Great Plotnik

Friday, November 30, 2012


Plot made a quick trip down to Stiletto City yesterday to take care of some Mummy P. business. He planned to stay 'til later in the day on Friday but -- he forgot about her hair dresser appointment. So he canceled his flight, moved it up earlier, then got to Burbank Airport to discover that flight had been canceled.

He's still there, but it looks like he'll get out soon (*). Flying in the winter in rainy weather is always an iffy proposition. Never a word about why the flight was canceled. But Southwest was kind enough to keep sending him text alerts that were no longer applicable.

Yesterday he was at Oakland Airport, hungry, faced with these possibilities: Burger King fast burgers, Peony Chinese fast Food or Otero's Fast Mexican. Normally, his default would be the Chinese one, but -- when was the last time you looked closely at that steam table airport chow mein? It seemed to have "Bacterial Infection" stamped all over it.

So he settled on the Mexican.

HOW can you make a burrito taste so -- so -- well, so tasteless?

Should have had a Whopper. He knew that at the time. Dumbnacious.

(*) Oops. They just announced his new flight is oversold. They are offering $300 compensation if you'll take the next flight, except you'd have to stand-by. Think. Think.

Nope. He's staying. Hope this isn't more Dumbnaciousness.
