Why 6:30 AM flights are a bad idea

Lessons learned:

  1. I had to wake up at 4:00 AM to be ready to go for my aunt/uncle taxi service which arrived at 4:45 AM.
  2. Taxi didn't quite make the left onto a major road and we ended up driving into oncoming traffic for about 2 seconds. Luckily, since it was so early, there was no oncoming traffic.
  3. Our driver (I won't say if it was the aunt or uncle), he complained the intersection was not well marked. Then said driver asked about the road to the airport and I told driver not to worry, it's well marked. Driver muttered some not very nice words to me in the rear view mirror.
  4. I made another well marked comment in the parking garage and am lucky I wasn't locked in the trunk.
  5. It's damn cold at 5:00 AM when you're walking from the garage to the airport. Especially when you decided to leave your coat at home.
  6. It's awesome to have your connection gates right across from each other when you only have a 30 minute layover in Atlanta.
  7. It's not awesome for your bags to have a 30 minute layover in Atlanta.
  8. It's less awesome when you've been making smart-ass "it's well marked" comments all morning AND you decided to carry on your bag.
  9. Don't gloat about carrying on your bag, not even while sitting in the backseat on the phone with your husband.
  10. Always turn down the volume in the rental car, otherwise you might be deafened by Nelly "Hot in Herre" blasting from the speakers.

Stay tuned to hear about the whores and topless oysters...don't worry, that's not going to be my picture blog!!
