When I fly...
I touch the outside of the plane as I board.
I choose an aisle seat.
As soon as I sit down, I put my seat back just a tiny bit -- not enough to be caught, but enough that I feel convinced I've scored myself some extra room.
I keep my seatbelt as loose as possible.
I adjust the air-blower-thing to high, and angle it right at me.
I wear a sweater or zip-up for when the air-blower-thing inevitably makes me cold.
I always bring something to read and rarely ever read it.
I text my friend right before I have to shut my phone off. It's tradition. Last text before takeoff, first text after landing.
I turn my phone on as we're landing, so it is fully powered up by the time we're on the ground. (I know, I know... So I won't also tell you that I've been known to occasionally turn it on mid-flight...)
I drink ginger ale.
I never eat the peanuts. And I always wonder why they still give those things out, especially with so many people allergic...
I become completely anti-social. I'll smile and say hello, but that's where I'd prefer our interaction end. Sorry, neighbor.
Armrest down. Always down.
I try to avoid going to the bathroom on the plane, but if I do... I cover my ears when I flush. That sucker is loud! Heh. "Sucker".
I try to force myself to sleep if there's turbulence.
I am that girl whose head drops when she falls asleep, jarring myself back awake just enough to reposition and do it all over again.
I thank the flight crew on my way out.
I'm sure there's more, but I'm drawing a blank.
How about you? What do you do when you fly?
