Amusing Myths

On the plane to Jakarta it became obvious that time is an illusion and age is irrelevant. It makes me think this would be a great excuse to travel more often
Jakarta is 12 hours ahead of the Central Time Zone in America. When Daylight savings occurs its 13 hours. So this means that I am a half a day older just by flying there. BAHAHA
On my flight from Tokyo to Jakarta I sat next to this wonderful woman named Swan. She lives in the U.S. now but born and raised in Jakarta. This lady is so flippin adorable. I was filling out my immigration paperwork on the plane and I said to her, “I don’t know the address of where I am staying. It’s on my phone but I can’t access WIFI right now.” She looked at me and said, “oh just tell them you are staying at the Marriott. I can’t think of the street name but that’s ok.” I said, will I get in trouble if I lie?” She started giggling and said, “I don’t know, they would have to find you first.”
As the conversation continued she shared with me that she loves to travel and often time does that alone. She also talked about how she loves food and there is NOTHING she doesn’t eat. Then we started talking about age and I asked her how old she was and she proudly said, I am 76. She asked, “how old are you? I said, 54. She said, oh you’re so young! According to who I thought? We have been in route to Jakarta for almost 24 hours. My muscles have atrophied. I can’t open my eyelids and I don’t even remember what fresh air smells like anymore. But this woman smells like a daisy and sprinted to the bathroom like Sheerah! Maybe it’s her “no holds barred “food consumption.
