Hi! I'm alive! The flight was okay except for the last twenty minutes which were filled with turbulence! I found out I could hold my breath for an insanely long time! Also, you can force your muscles to relax but it's kind of hard. I almost started to cry, but I didn't want to embarrass anyone. Other than that, not bad.
Mr.R's dad is frail, but doing his best to be on point--trying to be good so as not to worry everyone, poor guy.
I want to drop this real quick--Happy birthday, firesign10. I wanted to write you something but that didn't work out. Love you! Hope your birthday was scandalous!
