杂谈

I took some notes on an index card while on the airplane, see below for a portion. Fell asleep soon after writing.

6/7/11. 2:50 AM. 中国国际航空公司 [Air China], CA 0948. 

Ensconced tightly in my row seat, draped in blue blanket. Was asleep. Emerged from my cocoon after my neighbor started rustling. He had just received a meal tray. Oh Paulina, so typical. Always roused by food, even when unconscious.

To be waken up at 2:30 AM for a meal is some perverse glutton's fantasy, and here I was, living it. Under most circumstances, I think, I would have been happily compliant. But at that moment, I felt like a farm pig, soon to be force fed and transported, fattened, to the slaughter.

Fine, okay, my imagination was running wild. I was asked if I wanted the seafood rice or the beef noodles.I chose the noodles.

***

Strangely, my neighbor, a man of 70-years, had a completely different meal. Whereas most people on the plane had either the rice, or the noodles -- supper, essentially, since it was 5:30 PM Beijing time -- he had breakfast. Sausage and eggs. The old man is allergic to something, but what? Dinner?

More puzzling still were his beverage choices. He just downed an entire can of Yanjing beer, and had a cup of coffee to boot. Breakfast, beer, and coffee at 3AM? Dear sir, you are definitely messing with my concept of time. Dealing with the time difference once I land will probably come easy.
