Before the plane took off he kept talking to me about the snack options on the flight, even though I had my headphones on. Some people just can't take a hint. Apparently, his name is Dale. He is a Colorado native and is headed with his boyfriend to Hawaii. Blah, blah, blah.
He seemed harmless enough and quieted down eventually to listen to his iPod. I snapped a photo of him.
I spoke too soon about him quieting down though. About 10 minutes after I took his photo, he started tapping his finger on his seat tray and pointing out what he found to be interesting items in the Sky Mall magazine. The man was obviously crazy. He even offered me a sip of his cranberry-apple juice. Ewwww! Gross. As you can guess I was horrified. I snapped a photo of myself in case I was being stalked and needed evidence for a future court case.
Thank goodness it was a short flight. With my luck I will be stuck next to the same guy on the connecting flight to Hawaii.
