Coffee's Up!

My flight to Michigan was totally fun, if your idea of fun is being totally freaked out. (Thankfully, I like being freaked out!)

At one point, the plane started turning left and right like it was sitting on a Lazy Susan and two giants were fighting over the scrumptious cockpit. And then the plane just...dropped. A big drop. If I wasn't wearing my seatbelt, my noggin woulda been bonkin' the overhead storage bin.

Unfortunately, the flight attendants were in the middle of serving drinks when the turbulence hit. Everything on their cart went up in the air, including the pot of coffee which slammed into the ceiling.

See the stain?

A lot of people got off the flight with wet shirts. Thankfully, the attendants hadn't reached our row yet.

Welcome to Michigan!

No one got burned by the coffee, but some guy's laptop got drenched.

And I'm in Lansing, speaking at an SCBWI conference. Having fun so far! Two speeches down, one to go.

The funniest part about this post is that you tell it so you weren't FREAKING OUT! Weren't you freaking out? So glad you all made it safely to the ground!
