Meet Abel. 6 y/o from Milwaukee.
I had the pleasure of sitting next to him on my flight.
We played Fruit Ninja.
Burrito Bison Launchca Libre.
And a host of others I can’t recall.
The point is not that I completely obliterated this child in every game he challenged me to, but that even on the Greyhound bus of airlines (@southwestair
) I managed to have an enjoyable time thanks to Abel.
He was loud. Excitable. Didn’t care about the dirty looks being shot in his direction. And made sure the flight attendant served him a regular coke, NOT diet. “Dave! What if she comes back and it IS diet?!! Wouldn’t it be funny if I stood up on my seat and yelled at her - I SAID REGULAR COKE!”😂 Thankfully, for her sake, she got the order right.
Kids are the best. And the worst. The end. 🤷🏼♂️👋🏻👋🏻
