Lips and Elbows

Seattle to Incheon

It’s an 11 hour deflated butt fest, limbs numb and head dull with the jet engine drone, the close quartered elbows and travel breath make this magnificent vessel no better than a train car loaded with cows and other chattering livestock. Airbus 330, you are a sprawling, wide-winged, beautifully lit technological monster. A push-button, on-demand, fancy pant airplane whose lavatory’s may be loaded with complimentary lotions and accoutrements, but no matter how nice this airplane is, that amount of hours crammed into a fuselage with hundreds of other ragged, weary lips and rear ends make traveling a great lesson in community. And the tolerance for the questionable hygiene that results from such voyages.

Mmm. Gratis moisturizer.
