47! Ah, ah, ah.....

Photobucket

For the first time in 47 years, I am giving myself a very nice present.

I will be leaving on a jet plane very soon for three weeks. 1..2..3, ah, ah, ahhhhhhhhh.

It’s no fun to come outright and tell you, so I will continue my birthday fun by making you guess. Please no wagering. Vote early and often. Ready?

I will be visiting the only city in the world which lies on 2 continents.

I have a couple birthday wishes 1) a non-chatty seat mate and 2) no screaming babies on my flight. Oh and if it isn't too much trouble a magical immunity to the swine flu and of course, world peace.

Happy Birthday to me!

Sorry, I knew it was between Asia and Europe because it couldn't be between the other ones.
Have a GREAT time. Remember 50 is the new 20! So you must be 17?

It's a gift. And a curse. Just ask the Wife.

You left out not flying next to someone who's nervous about the flight. I almost crapped my pants when this old lady screamed next to me as we felt turbulence while coming in for a landing! Since then I haven't flew in 10 years.

Sophie: Thanks Red!

TC: 17! Very cool, hope I can keep up with myself.

t2ed: Snort! If I am having a contest, THAT is the exact way to play. Good on you!

KR: Thank you.

Dear AL: I completely forgot about the nervous Nellie's - I amend my wish to include them. Thanks for the reminder.

Who doesn't want a chatty seat-mate? They're the best. Without fail. People are fun.
