Twenty more minutes. That's all. Then I'm on the plane to Australia.
I finally get a vacation, away from work, home, and family. They're all equally annoying to deal with, but if anyone asks, work is most annoying. I only say that because I don't want to seem like I complain about everything. I'm sure if you knew what I go through every single day, you'd get why.
That's why I took this vacation. I won't have to deal with all those regular things that I pretend not to mind. It'll just be me, and the vacation that my sister won. I only got the vacation because she couldn't bring her whole family, making me very lucky.
Eighteen minutes. Maybe I have some time for lunch. It is about Twelve 'o' clock, and I don't really think I want airline food... Yeah, I'll get something.
I rose from my seat, picked up my baggage, and made my way towards a nearby coffee shop. It was like any other you would find, except smaller, and less busy. The place was clean overall, so I set my things at a table near the entrance, and bought a few bagels and a free of charge coffee that came with any food item.
Once I turned back towards the table I had claimed, I immediately noticed my things were gone. I dropped my bagels and coffee as I hurried toward the front of the shop, looking around for whoever took my bags. Unfortunately, I didn't spot them.
"Sir, did you see anyone take my bags?" I asked the coffee shop cashier.
He simply shook his head no, and proceeded to serve another coffee to a customer.
I ran out of the shop, searching for any sign of my baggage. I soon spotted my glasses case, broken, from either falling on the ground, or someone stepping on it. I wove my way through the crowd and picked up the case. The glasses inside weren't broken, thankfully, but provided little relief for me.
I glanced at a clock on a nearby wall. Five minutes. I could miss my flight, and the adventure of a lifetime, or I could miss my clothing, which could be easily replaced after the flight. I had my passport and a lot of just in case money with me, so I quickly decided without much more thought, and hurried over to my plane.
"Ticket and passport ma'am." said the women, in a sweet voice. I pulled out my wallet and gave her the requested items. I got my passport back, and boarded my plane after I had been cleared. This plane ride was a long one, but I was sure it would all be worth it, even if I would have to get airline food anyway.
I was going to have a good time, weather I wanted to or not.
