Early flight problems

Waking up at 5:30 to take an early flight is never a good thing.

Took an early flight to London yesterday so they served an English breakfast: scrambled eggs, mushrooms, sausages and tomatoes. I spent several years working in Ireland but I never got used to their breakfast (love their beer though :-)

Anyway, they also had fruits. Eating it was a bit of a challenge as the designer of the small table must have been inspired by the leaning tower in Pisa. OK for flat foods like slices pineapple but a PITA for round stuff like grapes. Gravity did its job and made one of the grapes roll of the plate onto my shirt leaving a tiny magenta spot. No problem I thought, I'll clean it with the (green) paper towel. Fast forward 2 minutes and I'm sitting there like and idiot with a big green spot instead of a tiny one.

Lesson learned: I shouldn't do anything before I've had a coffee.
