Are you on Twitter? Itâ€™s okay if youâ€™re not, Iâ€™m just asking. In case you need an explanation, on Twitter you basically share news in 140 characters (not words) or less with anyone who is â€œfollowingâ€ you. You use hashtags â€œ#â€ if youâ€™re speaking about a particular subject that you think other people are likely to search for. Itâ€™s an interesting experiment in social networking. Anyway.
When I was waiting for my Mom to arrive at the airport last week, I wished I had internet access because there were so many things I wanted to tweet during my adventure up to Joburg and back. This is Africa and there wasnâ€™t much wifi for the taking, unfortunately. So I wrote down a few tweets I thought you might enjoy in hindsight. Some might be more than 140 characters but since this isnâ€™t twitter, whoâ€™s counting?
Oh great. Iâ€™m sitting in front of a loud talker/chair pusher. At least heâ€™s not speaking English. Itâ€™s a lot easier to drown out.
Wow. Two gentleman were just about to fight in the aisle before exit. #Gentlemanisaloseterm
The convo ended w/ the very buff guy telling the overweight guy (who was definitely talking a ridiculous amount of smack) Shut up, Fat Man.
Why do potential fights give me that excited-butterfly-oh-no feeling? Iâ€™m not in high school anymore.
I just ordered a salad at Mugg & Bean. Iâ€™m pregnant and I ordered a salad. This is unbelievable.
I think that was 1 of the best salads Iâ€™ve ever had. Enjoy the healthy goodness, wee one on the way. Canâ€™t promise itâ€™ll happen again soon.
I just found an amazing bakery with a million things I want to try. #PregnantLadyinaCandyStore
Iâ€™m gonna have to be honest. That chocolate chip muffin needed more chocolate chips. #Dern.
My Momâ€™s going to land in a few minutes! Whoo-hoo! Time to find a potty and get my waitin face on!
My Mom is heeeeeeeeeeeereeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
My Mom is here and she has snacks! Chocolate covered pretzels, howzit? I’ve missed you!
Did I mention my Mom is here?
Thank you, South African airways for that tasty second supper. I didnâ€™t even need that half a PBJ twenty minutes ago.
The rise of Jimmy Choos is being told and retold on TV on this flight. #SoRandom
A safe landing in Cape Town, my Mama in tow. #BestdayIâ€™vehadinalongtime
Perhaps worth a few smiles and laughs? Maybe a retweet? 😉
P.S. Hereâ€™s a token of promise that great photos are on the way! (In case you’re wondering, that’s two handfuls of sand on the way.)
