Guest Opinion: Creating their own fields of dreams

Original post made on Jan 19, 2012

I woke up with a startle and a feeling like someone was slowly driving an ice pick into my neck. Very quickly I realized that I had dozed off on the plane on my way to Ecuador with son Jared. In addition to being squeezed together like sardines, I had the honor of sleeping in positions that are fit for a contortionist. Sadly, I realized that I had already maximized my ability to sleep on a plane and we had not even taken off yet.

I envy those who can sleep on airplanes.

Recently, on a trip to New Zealand, a young man on the other side of the aisle from my seat fell asleep even before take off. Subsequntly, the pilot announced that there would be a delay as a fuel pump was not working. Several hours later, the pilot announced that the flight was cancelled and the plane would leave the next day. The young man was then awakened and was startled to find that, no, he wasn't half way to Auckland, but he had never left the S.F. airport. Everyone laughed at his surprise.
