Live from cheerleader land...

Oh. My. Gawd.

Ok, we're here. I lived to tell about the idea of letting my daughter travel with her flaky coach while I sit around and wait for an airplane to take off. The weather held. We are five in the hotel room (three girls, the coach and me), and the estrogen level is a titch high. *snicker*

Coach ended up not leaving until 3 p.m. Um, hello? Six hours plus of driving in iffy weather, traffic and DARKNESS?

"Wow, I can't believe we got caught in an hour of construction traffic!!" (Really? At 5 or 6 p.m. on a Friday night? How unusual!)

Anyway, the girls compete twice -- today and Sunday -- and the scores are cumulative. I will update after I get home. Or if I simply CAN'T stop myself from relating amusing tales of cheerleader hell!

Meanwhile, I will leave you with these amusing tidbits from our flight attendant last night:

"In the event of a water landing ... SWIM!"

And my favorite:

"If we have a loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will drop down. Place it over your nose and mouth and breathe normally. If you are traveling with a child, please place your own mask first and then help your child. If you are traveling with two or more children, well... ONE of them is your favorite..."

Haha! Nice.

That's funny! What airline were you flying? The few times I've gone anywhere we've used Southwest and they were sooo funny!
Hope the girls do well.

Jenni said...

That had to be SW Airlines! Hope you have a great time.
