As we descended into Newark, the pilot announced, "We are arriving at Gate: Charlie - 125"
"HE SAID CHARLIE!" Madi's head spun in amazement.
We made it safely and now wait for our plane to Shanghai. Madi was great on the flight here. She had us in stitches a few times. She's such a stipulator sometimes and was very busy allocating time limits on the armrests. She heard the flight attendant announce a "snack service" and we knew we weren't getting out of that one. Pringles at 7:30 a.m. never hurt anyone, not that I know of anyway.
I also wanted to mention that we arrive in Shanghai at 1:55 p.m. Hopefully, you will all be sleeping!
