Playing Twister in the flying germ tube
Evo is back in Montreal, the cosmopolitan center of America's attic. Uneventful flights getting here. I did note the contortions we go through in airplane travel. Stepping over the sleeping passenger in the aisle seat is a challenging twister move. Eating, writing, reading in your seat without infringing on the personal space of the traveller next to you is another challenge. The airplane lavatory provides a tall Evo a reminder of having to be small to avoid bumping my head in a children's playground. In a bathroom designed for legless dwarfs, the challenge is to avoid touching the walls and ceiling (and I can assure you that you don't want to touch them) while....conducting..your business. Twister indeed. I just chalked the whole flight down as a core workout at 35,000 feet.
