On Sunday, I only had one real annoyance. I lined up to check my bags at Delta and waited for a good five or so minutes before a man came up to me and told me that I couldn't check my bag without a boarding pass. I had to go to the kiosk first. I know it's not the biggest of all deals since I only waited five minutes, but it was still annoying that there was NO sign. Therefore, I had no way of knowing that I needed to print my boarding pass first. It's things like that that annoy me about LAX.
Security was also a pain. I haven't been through US security since last July, so I haven't experienced the full body scanner yet. It was different, to say the least.
I was hungry when I got to my gate, so I ordered a breakfast burrito from a place called Creative Croissant. I naturally expected my burrito to be in a tortilla, but it turned out to be in a massive croissant! That's what I get for going to a place with "croissant" in the name, I guess. I still ate it, although I would have like something a little less buttery. It did taste pretty good.
I got a quick flight back to Chicago and arrived to a huge surprise! Another one of my besties, Irene, greeted me at the airport with my parents. This was a huge deal, because I haven't seen her in almost two years! She spent a year in Uruguay, and I missed her every time that I came back to visit. It was one of the best reunions I have had in a long time. Of course, I was happy to see my mom and dad, too. I just wasn't surprised to see them!
It was dinner time by the time I got my bag, so we all went out to Cooper's Hawk by our house. My parents love this place, because they make their own wine there. My dad loves any place that appreciates wine as much as he does, so they eat there frequently. This was my second time there with them.
My dad bought a bottle of wine in the gift shop, and they put it in a decanter for us to drink.
