A Jumper Seat

2:00PM I arrived in Bangkok, Thailand by the skin of my teeth.

My connecting flight out of Germany all of a sudden flooded with eager passengers, thus decreasing my chance of getting a seat. I fly standby, and if you know anything about standby you understand that it’s a risky business. Basically, if there are any extra seats on the plane I get to have one; however, if there are none, then I have a first class seat at the gate to watch the plane take-off without me.

Thankfully the Lord was faithful in providing me with a seat, but it definitely was not the seat I expected. Instead of having a real seat like all of the other comfortable passengers, I had to sit in a jumper seat. For 10 hours.

The huge smile that lit up my face when I finally arrived in Bangkok.
