baby octopus.

2 babies flying home during nap time.
one plugged into movie and complimentary soda.
of which he ordered a coke.
the other so tired and hungry that not even food could satisfy her.
picture me holding a baby octopus.
we'll call her max.
me trying to cover boobs with a brightly colored apron,
baby octopus' arms and legs flailing out of the top and sides,
all the while the baby octupus is screaming at an obnoixiously loud level of volume.
in the middle seat.
with a teenager rolling her eyes at us across the aisle.
and that was in the first 20 minutes of the flight.
have mercy.
it's a good thing our vacation was good.

I wondered what had happened to you. At least that was the end of your vacation and not the beginning, right? And I hope it was a short flight. Those babies can squirm and show the world your goods better and faster than it would be thought humanly possible!

Once Karin did that to me, but we were on a ferry boat. And it was stormy, so we were all below deck. Together. Me and a couple hundred angry people.

I was trying my best, but they were not kind.

I almost started crying, too, if I'm honest.
