It takes a long-ass time to get to Afghanistan from the US.
First, I flew from Boston to Norfolk, where I hung out waiting for a day.
Maybe one of the flight attendants took pity on my teary-snotty self, because I got bumped or something to a first-class seat, which happened to be the nicest plane seat I’ve ever sat in. There was an option to transform the seat into a bed! Hellz yeah!
